The new installation in the “Heart” series continues in political aggravation toward America’s 45th president.According to Lamar, his new album is about ““going back to my community.” He continues, in an interview with The New York Times from early March, “To Pimp a Butterfly was addressing the problem… I’m in a space now where I’m not addressing the problem anymore. We’re in a time where we exclude one major component out of this whole thing called life: God. Nobody speaks on it because it’s almost in conflict with what’s going on in the world when you talk about politics and government and the system.”Stream the new track, “The Heart Part 4” below:

Hot, dry days are doing more than wilting plants outdoors. They’re chasing bugs indoors, say University ofGeorgia experts. “Insect pests normally found on the outside will moveinside in search of water or food during dry periods,” saysBeverly Sparks, an Extension Service entomologist with theUGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Several species of ants, including fire ants andArgentine ants,” Sparks says, “are normally found outdoors.But they become indoor pests during hot, dry periods.” Cockroaches, millipedes and scorpions are other peststhat move indoors in search of cooler temperatures andwater. Look for yellow jackets to be more aggressive towardwater and soft drinks, too. Extension horticulture educator Walter Reeves sayscicada killers (ground-nesting wasps) are getting moreactive, too. “They’re very nonaggressive, though,” he said.”You’ll see them swarming around, but they generally won’thurt you.”
