      Now all of a sudden you hate Kendrick again? You were just praising it, calling it a masterpiece 2 weeks ago under the name, Sonic? The fuck? You’re the weirdest troll on here?

    How much a dollar cost was the best beat on this album but i’m guessing y’all are only doing singles


      Nah the blacker the berry beat was the hardest beat on that album imo….

  • Kris Kompute

    Beat slapped. Kendrick’s muffled vocals at the beginning set it off.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    That bull shit this beat was corny to me.

  • heh

    Crazy that Drake’s eating off of one of Kendrick’s biggest singles

    • Kris Kompute

      What? Drake doesn’t get his producers publishing. Dumbass.

  • the beat knocks like cops on a drug raid.

  • Solid choice but my favorite beat on this album was “Institutionalized”… and the part at the beginning of “Hood Politics” was mad dope, its a shame it was so short.


    When i heard the beat to blacker the berry i caught the chills, this beat went hard as fuck.

  • Shock

    Shit just gives you a certain vibe, could be one
