Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, 2 Chainz & Saudi Tear Down New Song ‘X’
Are you on 10 yet?!l Ladies and gentlemen, your Wakanda vibes are here!
Black Panther The Album has dropped and it has so many feelings it’s crazy. From the turn up to deep rooted tracks about modern day slavery, this album has it all. It’s a great compilation album of artist from all walks of life that bring something special to the culture. In the midst of tribal drums and harmonies comes a song that completely does a 180 from the passionate tone that the majority of the album captures, X.
X comes in so strong, I had to start over. As usual K. Dot comes through with the hook that sets the tone and energy for the whole track. I say K.Dot and not Kendrick Lamar because there is a more raw feeling in his alter ego. After the energy is solidified in comes a voice from an artist I have never heard before, Saudi. He gives this melodic feel to the song that apparently is mostly in Zulu, catering to the feel of the album. True grit and rawness are hard to capture but is executed perfectly on the next verse by TDE label member, ScHoolboy Q. I swear this guy just gets better and better with time, his rhyme pattern is placed so well over the beat. Before the song comes to a close the beat switches ushering in 2 chainz with his playa like flow that is so confident and bold.
This song is nothing short of pure fire. Check this and more out on Black Panther The Album. The TDE tour is about to be even better if they throw some of these songs in the set list! This one is going to be hard to top!
