Black Hippy’s Kendrick Lamar has had a very busy last year- in addition to releasing the critically acclaimed Section 80, and supporting Drake along with A$AP Rocky on a world tour, Dr. Dre (along with The Game & Snoop Dogg) crowned him as the “New King of the West Coast.” Now, the new king has teamed up with the former king for the single off Kendrick’s new album, Good Kid in a Mad City, and the result is a spectacular California anthem. The song starts with a soothing “smoking weed with you” hook, with Dr. Dre coming in and spitting over it sounding like his Chronic 2001 self. Kendrick follows, and makes it impossible not to pay attention to his intricate rhymes and mesmerizing voice. The single is officially released on iTunes tomorrow, with his debut album coming out sometime later this year.
