Kendrick Lamar Teases New Single “I,” Rumored For Next Week

We’ve been hearing all year that Kendrick Lamar would have a new album out this fall, but up until now there hasn’t been any musical evidence to support those claims. That’s about to change: The rapper just tweeted cover art for a new single called “I,” which is rumored for release next week. Early reports suggested that the tune would be called “I Love Myself,” though something tells me this won’t be your typical self-aggrandizing hip-hop track. 2014 has been a slow year for major rap releases, but between this, Nicki Minaj’s The Pink Print, Kanye’s long-rumored Yeezus follow-up, and what might be a revitalized Lil Wayne on The Carter V, Q4 is looking pretty stacked. It’s time to get excited, people!

UPDATE: MTV confirms that “I” samples the Isley Brothers’ “Who’s That Lady,” which has also been sampled by the Beastie Boys and Charles Hamilton and appeared in a Swiffer commercial.

Does this news make you less or more excited?
