Multiple Grammy-winner and good music doer Kendrick Lamar has dropped a brand new track, titled ‘The Heart Part 4.’

The release appears to tie in with some interesting Instagram activity – namely that Kendrick’s Instagram account has been wiped except for a single tile bearing the Roman numeral “IV”, presumably referencing the soon-to-be-released fourth album.

The song is as blistering as anyone familiar with Lamar would expect, and features both a sick burn on Donald Trump (“Donald Trump is a chump, know how we feel punk/Tell em that God comin’, and Russia need a replay button, y’all up to something”) and a potential release date for album number four. Right at the end of the song, he raps “Y’all got ’til April 7 to get y’all shit together.” 

With all due respect, Mr Lamar, the world is full of a lot of shit. Two weeks is just not enough time to get all of it together. 

Here’s hoping he drops the album anyway.
