2012 was a great year for hip-hop. While many big names dropped much awaited albums the best surprises for me came from younger, lesser known talent such as Angel Haze, Joey Badass and Earl Sweatshirt. Amongst them, Kendrick Lamar definitely stands apart, and 2012 probably wouldn't have been as good if it wasn't for his astonishingly [...]
Hip-Hop of the contemporary vintage sometimes seems a little too interested in conceit. There's the goofy teenage wickedness of Odd Future, the practically retro gang- banging of Chief Keef, the incendiary irony of Das Racist. What always seems to be missing, though, is something essential, a core level of quality that glides by without hype and attitude. Which is a pretty good way of describing Kendrick Lamar. Lamar has been kicking around for nearly a decade now, but good kid, m.A.A.d city marks his major label debut. Given that the major label in question is Dr.Dre's Aftermath, and this is the first time [...]

Last night Dr. Dre joined Kendrick Lamar onstage at Club Nokia LA Live in L os Angeles . Together they performed Compton and The Recipe - check out the footage below: I'm not even gonna bother discussing ' Detox ' - it's never gonna happen is it?
New heater from Kendrick Lamar and produced by Hit-Boy, Backseat Freestyle is real hip hop. Kendrick’s flow is both genius and innovative on this badass beat from Hit-Boy. Enjoy.
I'm going to let the line up speak for itself. good kid, m.A.A.d city available for pre-order now.
“Compton” is the latest track to leak off of the upcoming Kendrick Lamar record, good kid, m.A.A.d. city . With Just Blaze behind the boards, and a guess verse from mentor Dr.Dre, this is unsurprisingly fantastic. Another modern classic for the West Coast neighborhood. Also, we have the tracklisting for good kid, m.A.A.d. City available. Check it out below. Very surprised to see both “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and ‘The Recipe”, his two biggest cuts to date, only on the deluxe version. As it’s still a few weeks away till the release date of [...]
One of the hottest up and coming hip-hop artists right now is undoubtedly Kendrick Lamar . His first album Section.80 received high ratings and reviews from numerous critics and ended up 13th on Billboard's Top Rap Albums of 2011. Now, three weeks away from his new album good kid,m.A.A.d city , he graces our ears with a fresh single "Compton" featuring Dr. Dre and produced by Just Blaze . The beat is pretty straight forward with a heavy accent on beat 3 that really drives it. The Dre verse, which unfortunately [...]
Kendrick Lamar's debut drops in just a couple weeks, and today we get a pretty dope new cut dedicated to his hometown and featuring his hometown forefather, Dr. Dre. They brought the budget out for this one, as "Compton" is also produced by Just Blaze. I've seen some twitter ramblings about this cut, and it not being that good. Frankly, I think it's pretty dope. The end kind of gets away from it, but Kendrick shines and beat knocks, yet keeps the traditional Just Blaze vibe. Listen and enjoy below.
Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar has always been pretty proud of where he is, referencing it numerous times-in lights both positive and negative-in his songs. However, this new track is truly his biggest tribute yet, featuring the likes of Compton legend Dr. Dre on a few verses. Also, that hook? Completely hold school, but the track has a really fresh feel to it. Really digging what Kendrick brought on this track, and it's only making my anticipation for this dude's next album, good kid, m.a.a.d. city , even hotter. / via /
How long has it been since Just Blaze has blessed a beat that's featured on this here bloggy-blog? Bloody ages, I'd say. But when Just wants to come back on the scene, he comes back strong by contributing a track for one of the most anticipated (if not the most) albums of 20-12: Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d. city. Ken's regular running mate Dr Dre steps out from behind the boards and onto the mic, blessing Blaze's beat (alliteration overload) on for a tune about [...]
