Kendrick Lamar just released a new song, and Donald Trump is not going to be happy about it. The track, The Heart Part 4, starts off typically enough, but it doesn’t take long before he sets his sights on “chump” Trump.
Lamar announced to his seven million followers on Twitter that the track was available on Apple Music:

About halfway through the song, Lamar goes form rapping about success and traveling to Donald Trump himself:
“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 somethin’/Electoral votes look like memorial votes/But America’s truth ain’t ignorin’ the votes.”
In an interview with T, Lamar spoke about his upcoming album:
“This is what goes on in my mind as a writer. One day, I may have a little girl… I’m gonna always love her, but she’s gonna reach that one point where she’s gonna start experiencing things. And she’s gonna say things or do things that you may not condone, but it’s the reality of it and you know she was always gonna get to that place. And it’s disturbing. But you have to accept it. You have to accept it and you have to have your own solutions to figure out how to handle the action and take action for it.”
In terms of “taking action” regarding the Trump administration, Lamar doesn’t hold back. With Trump especially sensitive about his persona in the entertainment industry, this one is not going to feel good.
