NEW MUSIC: Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr Dre – Compton
Preface: I know I’m late gettin on the bandwagon, but I recently got put on to Kendrick Lamar by a good friend of mine and dude is on FIRE!!! But hey, it’s waaaayyyy too many new rap cats to keep up with…
With the legendary Dr. Dre in his corner, Kendrick’s debut album may just be one of the most anticipated debut albums this year. So with that said, check out his third single Compton, which features his mentor Dre and is produced by another longtime hit maker: Just Blaze. I like Kendrick for his lyrical ability, dude is pretty clever and always seems to spit some good lines over some dope beats. Case in point – press play below.
Check for the album, “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” when it drops October 22. The album will feature previous singles Swimming Pools, and one of my favorites of the moment The Recipe.
