Hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar's new album "The Heart Part 4" drops on April 7, but his lyrics are already making waves.
Lamar, who hails from Compton, California, appears to take a shot at Kevin Durant for his decision to leave the Thunder and join the Warriors this past offseason in free agency.
From the single titled "IV":
Tables turned, lessons learned, my best look
You jumped sides on me, now you 'bout to meet Westbrook
Go celebrate with your team and let victory vouch you
Just know the next game played, I might slap the s--- out you
Technical foul, I'm flagrant, I'm foul
They throwin' me out, you throw in the towel
