: Post 2010 Pop
: Kendrick Lamar - King Kunta
Reason to pick the song
: We needed to pick a song that features in top 40 of US, UK of Aussie main hit lists. Hard theme for me as I never ever listen to pop music. First thing I did was go over all number ones from 2010 onwards in all these lists. Didn't know most of the songs and didn't like the few ones I heard before. 'King' from Years&Years came to mind, but alas, that had already been chosen before. Finally I remembered King Kunta being all over the radio a couple of years ago. I thought it would have been number 1 in all kind of lists, but it was barely eligible lol (barely top 40 in the Aussie hit list, didn't even enter top 40 of the other two). Sent it anyway because I couldn't think of another song.

: King Kunta , acapella, do what u want and hold my hand only 4 keepers from SF1, rest are trash
: 0/10 doesn't belong in this game
: Beyonce should take notes, this was a revoltionary album that detailed the lives of a black american. I'm not usually into hip hop, but it's a worthy throwback to a better and old style of rap.
: wow, ok. it doesn't hold anything back. Very distinct and heavy vocal delivery. I have to admit this flows extremely well, there is very little in the way of wasted notes or energy and there is also enough variety that develops subtly. This is probably the most surprising discovery for me so far.
: I just don’t understand this type of rap. I’ve heard club versions of this song which I like and this is one of his better songs but I prefer this song in the club.
: King Kunta is trash of its genre. Sorry.
To which Randy responded
: Are you serious.....
Beat also came to my defense
: IKR. "king kunta" is one of the best hip hop songs in recent memory.
: King Kunta is the bomb, as is Kendrick Lamar. (Although he was looking a bit busted in the video
But SRB Analyst had the last word
: Yes, I am serious, he was never likeable to me, and this song is just... horrendous, IMHO.
: I actually follow Serg.'s assessment that this song doesn't really belong in this game. It is just not generic enough for this game. Glad some liked it and I actually let Matt discover this song. Too bad I barely missed out on top 10 (
@Beat) but oh well...
