“Y’all got until April the 7th to get your shit together.”
So, that’s what the “IV” means.
Most assumed the “IV” represented Kendrick dropping his fourth studio album.
Turns out we were off.
Moments ago, Kung-Fu Kenny tweeted out the link to “The Heart Part 4,” what we assume is the first single from his new album. And yes, we know a new Kendrick LP is coming soon because he talked to T Magazine about making an album centered on God recently. (Also, because he told other rappers they have “until April 7th to get their sh*t togther” on the track.)
Interesting note, First Look Friday alum, Khalid, also contributed vocals to this devastating song.
I’m so honored to have been apart of this. I can’t believe that my voice is on a Kendrick song. This is insane. pic.twitter.com/2OJjlO4vJ4
