New Unreleased Kendrick Lamar Tracks Seize the Internet

Eight previously unreleased Kendrick Lamar tracks have hit the internet. The cover art reads ” Bad Kid Chill City: A Short Film by Kendrick Lamar.” Was this supposed to be his second studio album instead of To Pimp a Butterfly? After all, it was released three years after his debut. Should we be expecting a mini-movie? Kendrick is a multi-talented artist, one could only wonder what content he has stashed away.
In the first song “Gang Member” Kendrick Lamar references his monstrous debut album, “Good Kid Maad City.” Bad Kid Chill City” sounds like a softer appendage of GKMC. The song composition is very much so ‘chill.’ Yet it is filled with imagery and is not short of soulful tracks. Sza, and Isaiah Rashad harmonize on two of those soulful songs, while Jay Rock, Ab Soul, and Busta Rhyme compliment Kendrick’s intricate bars with their own.

One on One with: Fitzgerald

I recently had the chance to interview a charismatic upcoming artist from New Haven, Connecticut.
Fitzgerald is an intrinsic artist on the rise. As a child he knew being a musician was his destiny. “I’ve always been into the arts, when I was in diapers I’d be dancing all over the place.” He recollected. The 23 year-old made the move to Atlanta a few years back where he briefly attended Morehouse and began forging his musical journey.
I was able to preview some new music and a visual from Fitz and I am absolutely in love with the melodies. CaliforniaKingDreamin’ and Thinking About You are both personal inquisitions for a good time of lust, maybe even love. However, the two tunes differentiate as Thinking About You is more about infatuation and CaliforniaKingDreamin’  is a memory of love, the wish to return to it and a potential future.

Of course I had to see if a special someone inspired these songs. “I am currently single like a dollar bill! “Thinking About You” was inspired by someone I am currently chatting with but it’s nothing deep as of now.” He explained. So, lucky for anyone who’s interested, Fitz is still on the market. The soulful songwriter says: “I write from a very fluid standpoint. When I say that, I mean I want my music to be for both him and her. Life is a general experience and my music reflects as such. I write for those who can identify with self-acknowledgement and accepting their actions right or wrong.” He makes it easy for a true R&B lover to get lost in his music.
The fashion forward singer has a unique look to fit his standout sound. Fitzgerald attributes Pharrell Williams for his style inspo.
R&B’s contending front runner has been influenced by Pharrell, 3 Stacks, Carl Thomas, Frank Ocean, and Eric Bellinger. Fitz aspires to become a mogul and share his talents with the with the world.
