Cornrow Kenny, however, decided to change all of that.
It’s been two years since Kendrick Lamar‘s GRAMMY-winning album To Pimp A Butterfly, but the shining star of Compton has kept busy with a myriad of guest appearances, most recently joining Gucci Mane and Rae Sremmurd on Mike WiLL Made It’s Ransom 2 track “Perfect Pint.” Out of nowhere, though, he briefly put a picture on his Instagram account signifying… something. That “something” would ultimately be “The Heart pt.4,” the latest installment of a series he began in 2010.
So, we at the DopeHouse thought, “why not re-introduce everyone to its predecessors?”
Hence, the basis of our latest, quickstrike mix. As well as chronologically including each form of “The Heart” to date, I also included the samples used in the first three installments, culling from The Roots, Willie Hutch, Bilal and Mos Def.
Listen to the mix below.
