It wasn't supposed to be like this.
Last night (April 6), rap fans were hoping to see the last line in Kendrick Lamar's "The Heart Part 4" come to life. "Y'all got til April the 7th to get y'all shit together," he raps on the comeback track. But did Cornrow Kenny arrive with a new album? No. Instead, following increased buzz and speculation, the Compton lyricist announced a release date for his proper full-length project. While the announcement of the album arriving next Friday (April 14) is still exciting, there's still disappointment in the fact that it didn't arrive today. Somewhere, Top Dawg is laughing like…
