Who wants to fight through crowds when you can get this Black Friday gift at home? Kendrick Lamar dropped a hot new track called ‘Black Friday,’ and it’s everything we’ve been waiting for from the rapper. Click through to listen!
Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole embarked on a wild new project in 2015 called “Black Friday,” and the fruits of their labor were revealed on November 28 — the day after Black Friday, fittingly! Kendrick spit fire over J’s “A Tale of 2 Citiez,” while J did the same to “Alright.” Though both cuts are amazing, we can’t help but lean toward Kendrick’s. Click through to listen!
“Black Friday” is a crazy-ambitious track that makes it clear who Kendrick is in this world. The nearly four minute-long verse asserts that he’s doubly as great as Adele (“I’m rolling deep in that paper like two Adeles”), should be President Kanye West‘s running mate in 2020, and even comparing himself to magician David Blaine. Okay, we don’t really get why he included that last reference, but we’ll take it; he’s making sure we all know that he’s the greatest, and we kind of have to agree with him!

Kendrick and J. never actually explained why they took on “Black Friday” together. There aren’t plans for a joint mixtape in the works, unfortunately. It was just a passion project that they did for themselves and their fans; they’re not even on the same label! Dreamville Records President Ib Hamad tweeted: “I didn’t do nothing but spark the idea but thanks for the love. End of the day I’m a fan just like you, I did because it’s fun for us fans.”
