1.Sherane a.k.a Master Splinter’s Daughter
Kendrick speak on how the beat spoke to him to write this lead off track:
I was in Atlanta when Tha Bizness gave me the beat. Immediately I got a vibe where I wanted to talk about a specific girl back when I was growing up. A specific story that leads down the line into the album. I got the track and I started writing and I went back home and laid it down.
These songs, they come naturally for me to write off the experiences I grew up with and the things I been around. It was just what we were going through. It’s easy for me to write [real] stories rather than making up a crazy story.
Dow Jones, one of the producers on the track also spoke about the track:
It’s dope for us to be the first song that people hear on a Kendrick Lamar album. It’s us and him together. It’s pretty big because for us, this feels like the first time that 50 Cent dropped. This is one of those big releases. There hasn’t been this much anticipation for an album in a long time where not a lot of songs have leaked. He’s done a good job of keeping everything close to the vest. It shows you how much he cares about the music.
