His sophomore album may be closer to a release than expected and if the first few tracks are any indication, Kendrick will be holding onto his throne as hip hop’s new king.
♩ Kendrick Lamar – i [single]
I hope these two never stop making music. Some producers and MCs just click…similar to the vibes that Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar have, Freddie and Madlib keep old school gangster vibes going on Pinata. I love the sample on this track too (Thuggin is also on this record but that song has been out forever)
The T.D.E. crew continues to impress with every release. Obviously King Kendrick is still killing it with his various features and collabs with Flying Lotus, but his labelmates do not disappoint either. Schoolboy Q’s debut full length had features from fellow T.D.E. cohorts Jay Rock and Kendrick and other big names in hip hop like 2 Chainz and Tyler, The Creator.
I love when it’s obvious that rappers have beat envy. 0-100 was one of those tracks that every rapper wanted when they heard it because everyone soon released their own freestyles or remixes over that beat. Say what you want about Drake, but he can rap (sometimes) and he always gets dope production.
