"Dude... watch out for your barnet... Oh, too late."

Seven days after Kendrick Lamar released his brand new single 'The Heart Part 4', he's released another new song out of nowhere, the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced 'Humble' - another masterclass in braggadocio.

The titanium plated banger - which gives a shout to Richard Pryor's afro, former president Obama and stretchmarks among other things - has wrong-footed a lot of hip hop observers who thought that the next they'd hear from the Compton MC would be the release of his next album a week tomorrow. ("Y’all got till April the 7th to get y’all shit together.”)

Either way, I guess no one's complaining about this coming in out of the blue.
