Pulitzer-winning author Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & ClayWonder Boys) has annotated Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker the Berry" lyrics. The Pulitzer Prize winner took to Genius today to submit his annotation to the track, and it's pretty interesting.

The line Chabon annotated said, "So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street?/When gang banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me/Hypocrite!" check out Michael's interpretation below.

"In this final couplet, Kendrick Lamar employs a rhetorical move akin to—and in its way even more devastating than—Common’s move in the last line of “I Used to Love H.E.R.”: snapping an entire lyric into place with a surprise revelation of something hitherto left unspoken. In “H.E.R.”, Common reveals the identity of the song’s “her”—hip hop itself—forcing the listener to re-evaluate the entire meaning and intent of the song. Here, Kendrick Lamar reveals the nature of the enigmatic hypocrisy that the speaker has previously confessed to three times in the song without elaborating: that he grieved over the murder of Trayvon Martin when he himself has been responsible for the death of a young black man. Common’s “her” is not a woman but hip hop itself; Lamar’s “I” is not (or not only) Kendrick Lamar but his community as a whole. This revelation forces the listener to a deeper and broader understanding of the song’s “you”, and to consider the possibility that “hypocrisy” is, in certain situations, a much more complicated moral position than is generally allowed, and perhaps an inevitable one."

Empire's Taraji P. Henson premiered the song on Twitter yesterday (Feb. 9) and it's already been getting a lot of buzz. Fans reacted to the track via social media, praising Kendrick on Twitter for his powerful lyrics. The release of "The Blacker the Berry" came the day after the 2015 Grammy Awards, where the Compton native snagged three Grammy's of his own. The song will presumably appear on Kendrick's sophomore studio album, which is still unnamed.
