Kendrick Lamar - i (Videoclip)
"i" is a song by American rapper Kendrick Lamar, released on September 23, 2014 as the first official single from his upcoming third album, To Pimp a Butterfly (2015). The song heavily samples "That Lady", as performed by R&B group The Isley Brothers, elements of which were re-recorded rather than being directly sampled from the original record. The song debuted and peaked at number 39 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The video for the song premiered on Vevo and YouTube on November 4, 2014. It features cameos from singer Ron Isley and George Clinton. References are made to 2Pac and The Joker in the video. A short instrumental was played in the intro of the video.
The song received critical acclaim from music critics. The track was placed at number ten on Rolling Stone '​s 50 Best Songs of 2014 list. Billboard listed "i" as the second best song of 2014. "i" also was placed at number 14 on Spin's list of "The 101 Best Songs of 2014". In January 2015, "i" was ranked at number five on The Village Voice '​s annual year-end Pazz & Jop critics' poll
"i" received the award for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

"The Blacker the Berry" is a song by American rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was released on February 9, 2015 as the second single from his third studio album, To Pimp a Butterfly. The song features vocals from Jamaican artist Assassin. It shares its title with the novel The Blacker the Berry by American author Wallace Thurman, which deals with similar themes of racism.
"The Blacker the Berry" is a racially-charged song, noted for being a departure from the "self-love-promoting" "i", a single released in late 2014. The song features a "boom-bap beat", with lyrics that celebrate his African-American heritage, and "tackles hatred, racism, and hypocrisy head on." Lamar introduces the themes with lyrics such as; "Came from the bottom of mankind / My hair is nappy, my dick is big, my nose is rounded / You hate me don’t you / You hate my people, your plan is to terminate my culture / You’re fucking evil / I want you to recognize that I’m a proud monkey / You vandalize my perception, but can’t take style from me." The song's hook is performed by Jamaican Dancehall artist Assassin, notable for performing on Kanye West's 2013 LP Yeezus, whose lyrics similarly address racial inequality, specifically against African Americans.
The song, however, contains a deeper meaning of the dangers of hypocrisy. Every verse in the song begins with "I'm the biggest hypocrite of 2015", followed by Lamar stating issues of racism in society. The final lyric in the song — "Then why did I weep when Trayvon was in the street, when gang banging made me kill a nigga blacker than me. Hypocrite!" — implies that Lamar believes that, while African-Americans should be angry about racism, and events such as the death of Trayvon Martin; however, he considers himself a hypocrite for mourning Trayvon's death, and not the deaths of the black lives around him, such as gang members.
"The Blacker the Berry" received universal acclaim from music critics. Steven J. Horowitz of Billboard gave the song four-and-a-half stars out of five, writing that "Lamar swings at racial injustice, letting rage break his usual cool veneer". Pitchfork Media named it "Best New Track", with reviewer Jayson Greene saying that the song "might be [Lamar's] most focused and upsetting performance."
