Kendrick Lamar’s forthcoming ‘DAMN.’ album is set to be released tonight at 8pm PST/11 pm EST. LeBron James gave fans an early preview of what’s to come with a preview of a few tracks off the highly-anticipated album via his Instagram story.
On the posts Bron shows love to Top Dawg for giving him the album early writing, “Uh oh! Appreciate the love KDot and Top Dog! Playoff vibe.”
One of the songs previewed was the fourth track “ELEMENT.” where an aggressive K. Dot goes at his critics with the lyrics, “I don’t do it for the ‘Gram / I do it for Compton / I’m willing to die for this shit, n***a / I’ll take your fuckin’ life for this shit, n***a.” On the same song Dot references 2015’s ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ and takes shots at a few artists by rapping, “Last LP, I tried to lift up black artists / But there’s a difference between black artists and wack artists.”
Watch LeBron playing some snippets below.
King James has always showed his support for King Kendrick and last year played a pivotal role in the release of ‘untitled unmastered’, by putting the pressure on Top Dawg with tweets asking for the release of the project.
