Kendrick Lamar Makes Fan Theory Come True With “DAMN.” Collector’s Edition

A fan theory about Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. has come full circle. After K. Dot confirmed a theory about how the LP can be played backward, the rap superstar has upped the ante by actually releasing a version of the project with a reversed tracklisting. Shortly after DAMN. dropped, enterprising fans figured out the narrative worked just as well — if not better — when played from back to front. In August, Kung Fu Kenny revealed this was intentional. “I think like a week after the album came out, [fans] realized you can listen to the album backwards,” Lamar told MTV. “It plays as a full story and even a better rhythm. It’s one of my favorite rhythms and tempos within the album. It’s something that we definitely premeditate while we’re in the studio.” The collector’s edition of Lamar’s latest pr...

Cardi B Responds to Backlash Over Selena Quintanilla Comparison: ‘I Want the World to Know How Much I Love Her’

Cardi B’s chart-topping “Bodak Yellow” is reason enough for the rapper to place herself among other legendary women in music history. The star did just that, comparing herself to the late singer Selena Quintanilla on Migos’ “Motor Sport” — but she got some heat for it. “Let me wrap my weave up, I’m the trap Selena, Dame más gasolina,” she rapped on the song released in late October. After fans tweeted in protest due to the disparity in cultures and era, Cardi B combated the jabs more than a month later, saying she made the reference because Selena “is an alter ego that everybody would want to be.” I said Trap Selena because who didn’t wanted to be Selena?She is a alter ego that everybody would want to be and i want the world to know how much i love her — — iamcardib (@iamcardib...
