Every so often an artist comes along who changes the musical landscape, an artist who brings something different to the game... step forward Kendrick Lamar. Hailed as the new face of West Coast rap, the 24 yr-old Compton-native has already been making his mark on the music scene. With the weight and backing of Dr Dre (the two recently had a joint xxl cover), Kendrick is ready to release his highly-anticipated major label album 'Good kid, m.A.A.d city' through Top Dawg Entertainment / Aftermath Entertainment / Interscope Records.
Featuring the introspective woozy lead single 'Swimming pools (drank)', produced by T-Minus and mixed by Ali.
"Lamar grew up in Compton, and ghosts of West Coast gangsta-rap haunt this album's edges, casting shadows on Kendrick's complicated relationship with his hometown. When "The Art of Peer Pressure" brings Kendrick and his friends to Rosecrans Ave., the music downshifts into menacing G-funk mode as a salute to hallowed ground. Ice Cube's "Bird in the Hand" is invoked to set up "m.A.A.d city" ("Fresh of out school, 'cause I was a high-school grad..."), which appropriately marks the moment when real violence erupts.Here, Kendrick sounds like a terrified kid: "I made a promise to see you bleeding," he raps, his voice pitched at a pleading, near-hysterical sob. In response, the voice of Compton's Most Wanted rapper MC Eiht leers, "Wake yo' punk ass up," like a father figure of the Darth Vader variety." - Pitchfork - 9.5
