Jump up on your feet and make some noise to the funkadelic waves of Kendrick Lamar’s “King Kunta.” Step into the sound my friend and feel the groove of this hip ode to the classic treasures of the 70s. “Everybody wanna cut the legs from him, King Kunta/ Black man taking no losses,” the chorus chimes. This stone cold brother is jiving about how he’s on top of the game now, but parasites want to take him down. It’s a cruel world out there, but Lamar is making it the best way he can through his stellar references Richard Pryor, Bill Clinton, the movie Shaft and the psychedelic sound in this foot tapping tune.
“By the time you hear the next pop, the funk shall be within you.”
“King Kunta” is a leaked track from Lamar’s upcoming album To Pimp A Butterfly which comes out March 23 through itunes. Following his dope singles “The Blacker the Berry” and the Grammy award winning “i,” this album is looking like one true powerhouse of sound. Check out the track for yourself here.
