    The track is the fourth entry is a career-spanning series, but it’s the first installment in nearly half a decade. Its predecessor, “The Heart Part 3”, was released in the months leading up to 2012’s good kid m.A.A.d city. The lyrics to “Part 4” suggest it may be our first taste of Lamar’s next studio album as he raps, “Y’all got till April the 7th to get y’all shit together.”

    Elsewhere on the track, Lamar blasts America’s 45th president, rapping, “Donald Trump is a chump, know how we feel punk/ Tell em that God comin’/ And Russia need a replay button, yall up to something/ Electoral votes look like memorial votes/ But America’s truth ain’t ignorin’ the votes.”
