Kendrick Lamar's New Track Is FIRE! The Blacker The Berry Talks Trayvon Martin, Racial Tensions In America And More! Check It HERE!!
Kendrick Lamar's new track is pure fire!
He just dropped The Blacker The Berry and wow, it's fantastic.
The song just comes so hard, with that amazing beat just carrying the whole tune — but it's Kendrick's lyrics that make this track something special.
He speaks openly about the racial tensions America has currently been experiencing.
Kendrick even drops a line for Trayvon Martin… directly by name!
He raps about the hypocrisy he sees every day and makes some pretty bold claims… we absolutely recommend listening to this track.
Check out the video (below) and hear Kendrick's hot fire!
It was SUCH an intense night at the Grammys!
Sam Smith practically walked away with all of the Grammys he was nominated for — maybe they should've named this year's show Sam Smith's Grammys and everyone else who was nominated.
Totally kidding, but the Stay With Me singer is now up there with all of the greatest artists who took home all of the awards!
Congrats to all of the winners and those who were nominated!
Ch-ch-check out the complete winners list from the Grammys (below)!!
Chris Brown Stalks On-Again Off-Again Girlfriend Karrueche Tran In His Music Video For Autumn Leaves
This whole thing is kinda bizarre…
Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran are constantly on-again off-again, but from the looks of this video, Breezy wants to keep her around forever!
The singer released his new music video for Autumn Leaves, off his 2014 album X, and in it, Chris tries to win the love of a geisha… aka Karrueche. And though he's dressed as a sword-wielding warrior, he doesn't fight for her affection (smart move!). Instead, he just silently stalks her.
Oh, and Kendrick Lamar is on the song, but isn't in the video. In his place are two other bikini-clad women, and Chris lip-synching Kendrick's lyrics.
This is probably a video we'll forget shortly after watching, but definitely check it out at least once to try and figure out what's going on!
EXCLUSIVE! MTV Will Honor Martin Luther King Jr. By Airing In Black & White For The First Time Ever To Get Everyone Talking About Race
Race is an issue that this needs to be talked about, and MTV is trying to get the conversation started.
This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, for the first time in the network's history, they'll be airing all of their programs in black and white from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The goal is jar audiences enough that they'll begin having, what MTV is calling "The Talk – candid, confident and 'color brave' conversations on race and bias." It's all a part of their Look Different anti-bias campaign.
Throughout the day, monologues from people like Kendrick Lamar, Common, Big Sean, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Penn Badgley, Jordin Sparks, Pete Wentz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. John Lewis, and Sen. Cory Booker will air, to help get people to discuss our differences.
We have a first look at Penn Badgley's clip for you (above)!
MTV's President, Stephen Friedman, talked about this, saying
We guess she's really mad!
That may be the understatement of the year after a Billboard interview with Kendrick Lamar came out that had the rapper talking about Ferguson and Michael Brown. But one contemporary musician was NOT happy with what Kendrick said!
After the interview came out, Azealia Banks came out online to voice her opinion of what the rapper said and it was obvious from her words how she was really feeling!
Here's what Kendrick originally said in the interview released this past Friday
This is straight-up brilliant!!!!
Everything that Kendrick Lamar touches is gold these days!
He's SOOOOO GOOD!
