Under his pgLang imprint, co-founded by former Top Dawg Entertainment co-president Dave Free, K. Dot holds nothing back on his verse and kicks it off boldly declaring he's "smoking on your top five." He rapped, "I'm not a trending topic, I'm a prophet [...] I am a legacy, I come from the seventy..."
He continued with a Megan Thee Stallion reference and alluded to his new album— "New flows comin', be patient, brother/Show my ass and take yall to class/I can multitask like Megan, brother." The visual for the single has Kendrick, once again, under the moniker, oklama. This is also how he closed the open letter announcing his last album with TDE.
Will he reemerge as a new artist under a new name? Guess we'll find out when it's time.
