In April’s release of “Damn.,” Kendrick Lamar raps about “loyalty, loyalty, loyalty” in an anthem that wonders aloud about “who you’re loyal to.”
Jay-Z, on his 13th studio album, “4:44,” whose production seems hastily arranged and rough around the edges, prefers to focus on his generational wealth and “legacy, legacy, legacy” at this point in his career, as noted on his latest album’s closing track, with the help of his daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
What else should we expect from the rap papa proud enough to file trademarks for his new twins’ names, Rumi and Sir Carter?
The rapper formerly known as Shawn Carter will no doubt add a pretty penny to the bulky legacy he’ll leave to all three of his kids with a fall tour in support of “4:44” . The tour stops at Dallas’ American Airlines Center on Nov. 7, the sixth of 31 North American tour dates.
