There doesn’t seem to be any word on the interstreets for which project this is from, nor when it was even crafted, but we’ve got new music from California freshman and Black Hippy crewmember, Kendrick Lamar, so there’s no complaints.
“Cartoon & Cereal” definitely exhibits a darker resonance, dipping from the musical warmth we’ve become accustomed to from Kendrick on previous releases, like (O)verly (D)edicated and his 2011 breakout album, Section. 80.
His next LP, tentatively titled Good Kid in a Mad City, is penciled in for a release this year. What’s your verdict – would you like to see this song be included on the album?
