XXL: Kendrick Lamar And Jonathan Emile “Heaven Help Dem”

Kendrick Lamar links with Montreal rapper, producer, and poet Jonathan Emile for a track paying tribute to the victims of police brutality like Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin. After a year of national press filled with news about numerous deaths of unarmed black men by the police, "Heaven Help Dem" is a powerful song that stirs emotions of both anger and sadness as soon as the track begins. Kendrick's standout verse is profound, expressing the grim reality of what it means to be a young black man in America.
