You guys have been asking for a Kendrick Lamar “The City” hearse for 4evaNaDay now. Recently nothing has motivated me to hearse. So I thought I’d finally give Kendrick’s “The City” its much deserved hearse. Don’t come around here with your, “Ahh Quez finally, too late though” either. I know, and it’s never too late! This will also be Kendrick’s 3rd hearse making him the new record holder. Hah, K.Dot hit me up for your trophy! Enough of the talking though, let’s get to business. Game escorts Kendrick through the city as K.Dot rides through in the Killer hearse giving us a scenic drive through the city that shaped him.
We’re finally here. Better late than never. Although “Lord Knows” isn’t my personal favorite from the album, it’s definitely the most jaw dropping track on Take Care. For the record, my favorites were “Practice”, “H.Y.F.R.”, and Kendrick’s verse on “Buried Alive”. My god, Kendrick had the best verse on the album! But I know you guys wanted to read about some Drizzy. So Drizzy you will get. I’m not downplaying “Lord Knows” though. Drake showed a lot of emotion, and “pwnded” the haters. So lets go, 1 Verse, 1 Hearse #12, Drizzy Drake, #OVOXO.
When Jay asked me to, “pull a hearse up, my verse up”. I said, “I D-O, I D-O, I D-O oh oh”. I have no choice ladies and gentlemen…and lowlifes. I have to take care of this verse because lord knows you only live once. Plus, I think Jay owes me a shout out. That’s my stuff Jigga, 1 Verse, 1 Hearse.
Listening to Camp, I felt like Justin Bieber when he got the paternity lawsuit. Where did this come from? Then I said, “is that Donald Glover from Community? Damn, he can rap.” Gambino has everything too. The depth, wordplay, metaphors, similes, production, and hooks. Just picking a song to hearse was a task. In the end, “Fire Fly” was the hottest in my ears, since I felt that it embodied the entire album rather nice. Yes, summer is long gone, but let’s go on a short camping trip to Gambino’s commercial debut.
I’ve been meaning to throw this song in the Killer hearse since last week. But if you remember, I had to take that trip to Cole World. The verse carcass is really stinking up my computer too, so I have to get rid of it. Plus it’s perfect timing for those of you who take the bawse for granted. Rozay may not blow you away with lyrics or depth, but he’ll always make you grunt after listening. UGH. The Just Blaze produced “I Love My Bitches” is no exception. Don’t take Ross for granted, God forgives, Rozay won’t.
C’mon let’s go. Hurry up already. Where are we going you ask? Oh, I’m taking you to one of the most remote places on Cole World. We’re going to go visit “Daddy’s Little Girl”. She’s being held hostage by iTunes on the bonus tracks of Cole World: The Sideline Story. Trust me she’s worth the trip. Some say she’ll take it to the face without throwing up, and she’s some sort of Sade mixed with Shawty Lo. “Daddy’s Little Girl” showcases Cole’s social awareness and the rare ability to deliver a positive message. Hopefully when we un-cage her from this iTunes cage, people will see the beauty in her. Buckle up, it’s going to be a long drive.
