Kendrick Lamar has again linked up with big boss and mentor Dr. Dre for a single to his approaching Aftermath debut, good kid M.A.A.D. City. The two are again representing their home, only this time, rather than the boisterous, state-wide romp of “The Recipe”, the two link up for a personal ballad to their hometown on “Compton”.
Some tongues should be wagged at Just Blaze handling a beat that couldn’t have been meant more for Dre himself, but the super-producer seems hesitant to helm a beat himself these days, instead opting to mix this track. Nonetheless, this is a cut to savor. Listen below and look out for good kid come October 22nd, tracklisting below.
