KENDRICK LAMAR - King Kunta

This song is from the album To Pimp a Butterfly(2015), released on March 23, 2015.
I didn't really enjoy this song fully. The production was interesting, but the execution and the performance didn't feel very impressive. The rhythm and the chords used were not interesting either, although the bass felt pretty nice for this song. I would have enjoyed it better if there were some variety in the music or the verses.

Bottom bunk in a two man cell
