The song was co-produced by KOZ & Boi-1da.

In light of Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly once again landing on the Apple Music Top 100 charts, it feels appropriate to revisit one of the album's most poignant singles.

Five years removed from its initial release, "The Blacker The Berry" continues to resonate as strongly as it did initially; the simmering aggression, the powerful lyrics, and the tense instrumental from Boi-1da coalesce to effectively capture the spirit of a frustrated community.

One who has been fighting a seemingly endless fight.

Set against the backdrop of the George Floyd protests, "The Blacker The Berry" feels like an anthem for the times.

Much has already been made of Kendrick's songwriting, which comes alive over the haunting production.

"Came from the bottom of mankind, My hair is nappy, my dick is big, my nose is round and wide," he raps, the venom in his cadence scathing.

"You hate me don't you? You hate my people, your plan is to terminate my culture." Sadly, there remain many to whom Kendrick's lines are applicable, those like Derek Chauvin who look down on the Black community.

But if one thing can be gleaned from the tragic murder of George Floyd, it's that people will no longer stand for these injustices.

"The Blacker The Berry" captures it all.

The anger.

The frustration.

The power.

The confidence.

A brilliant piece of writing and performance from a generational talent.

It's no surprise that thousands of people have filled the YouTube comments with observations of its current-day impact.

Take a moment to revisit this one and let it sink in.

Rest in peace George Floyd.

[Intro: Kendrick Lamar & Lalah Hathaway] Everything black, I don't want black (They want us to bow) I want everything black, I ain't need black (Down to our knees) Some white, some black, I ain't mean black (And pray to the God) I want everything black (We don't believe) Everything black, want all things black I don't need black, want everything black Don't need black, our eyes ain't black I own black, own everything black [Bridge: Kendrick Lamar] Six in the morn' Fire in the street Burn, baby, burn (You, you, you, you, you) That's all I wanna see (You, you, you, you, you) And sometimes I get off watchin' you die in vain It's such a shame they may call me crazy They may say I suffer from schizophrenia or somethin' But homie, you made me (You, you, you, you, you) Black don't crack, my nigga [Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar] I'm the biggest hypocrite of two-thousand-fifteen Once I finish this, witnesses will convey just what I mean Been feelin' this way since I was sixteen, came to my senses You never liked us anyway, fuck your friendship, I meant it I'm African-American, I'm African, I'm black as the moon Heritage of a small village, pardon my residence Came from the bottom of mankind My hair is nappy, my dick is big, my nose is round and wide You hate me don't you? You hate my people, your plan is to terminate my culture You're fuckin' evil I want you to recognize that I'm a proud monkey You vandalize my perception but can't take style from me And this is more than confession I mean I might press the button just so you know my discretion I'm caught in my feelings, I know that you feel it You sabotage my community, makin' a killin' You made me a killer, emancipation of a real nigga [Pre-Chorus: Kendrick Lamar] The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice The blacker the berry, the bigger I shoot [Chorus: Assassin] I said they treat me like a slave, cah' me black Woi, we feel a whole heap of pain, cah' we black And man a say they put me inna chains, cah' we black Imagine now, big gold chains full of rocks How you no see the whip, left scars 'pon me back But now we have a big whip parked 'pon the block All them say we doomed from the start, cah' we black Remember this, every race start from the block, jus 'member dat [Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar] I'm the biggest hypocrite of two-thousand-fifteen Once I finish this, witnesses will convey just what I mean I mean, it's evident that I'm irrelevant to society That's what you're tellin' me, penitentiary would only hire me Curse me 'til I'm dead, church me with your fake prophesizing That I'ma be just another slave in my head Institutionalized manipulation and lies Reciprocation of freedom only live in your eyes You hate me don't you? I know you hate me just as much as you hate yourself Jealous of my wisdom and cards I dealt Watchin' me as I pull up, fill up my tank, then peel out Muscle cars like pull ups, show you what these big wheels 'bout, ah Black and successful, this black man meant to be special Katzkins on my radar, bitch, how can I help you? How can I tell you I'm making a killin'? You made me a killer, emancipation of a real nigga [Pre-Chorus: Kendrick Lamar] The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice The blacker the berry, the bigger I shoot [Chorus: Assassin] I said they treat me like a slave, cah' me black Woi, we feel a whole heap of pain, cah' we black And man a say they put me inna chains, cah' we black Imagine now, big gold chains full of rocks How you no see the whip, left scars 'pon me back But now we have a big whip parked 'pon the block All them say we doomed from the start, cah' we black Remember this, every race start from the block, jus 'member dat [Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar] I'm the biggest hypocrite of two-thousand-fifteen When I finish this if you listen then sure you will agree This plot is bigger than me, it's generational hatred It's genocism, it's grimy, little justification I'm African-American, I'm African I'm black as the heart of a fuckin' Aryan I'm black as the name of Tyrone and Darius, excuse my French But fuck you — no, fuck y'all, that's as blunt as it gets I know you hate me, don't you? You hate my people, I can tell 'cause it's threats when I see you I can tell 'cause your ways deceitful Know I can tell because you in love with that Desert Eagle Thinkin' maliciously, he get a chain then you gone bleed him It's funny how Zulu and Xhosa might go to war Two tribal armies that wanna build and destroy Remind me of these Compton Crip gangs that live next door Beefin' with Pirus, only death settle the score So don't matter how much I say I like to preach with the Panthers Or tell Georgia State "Marcus Garvey got all the answers" Or try to celebrate February like it's my B-Day Or eat watermelon, chicken, and Kool-Aid on weekdays Or jump high enough to get Michael Jordan endorsements Or watch BET 'cause urban support is important So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street When gang-banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me? Hypocrite! [Instrumental Outro] [Produced by Boi-1da & Koz] Boi-1da
