You will have to excuse me, Kendrick Lamar fans, for assuming that his new album, Section.80, was going to be a free release when I wrote about his “Tammy’s Song” video. To be fair, most of his material has been free thus far and Saturday isn’t your typical release day. But given the songs we have heard, including new single “No Makeup (Her Vice),” dude deserves to earn some dollars for Section.80. The track features crooner Colin Munroe, whose sadman hook helps maintain the downtrodden vibe of Lamar’s rhymes and the woozy production. His bars hit especially hard on the second verse as he and a female go back and forth to reveal exactly why her makeup is a necessity.
Stream the track below. Section.80 is out now on iTunes.
