Summary: Back to the rap.
About Artist: DJ Khaled had a great year, taking his celebrity to the next level, and releasing a widely acclaimed album “Major Key” (2016).
About Song: This song was the 3rd single from DJ Khaled’s “MajorKey” (2016). This song features a first verse Big Sean, a second verse by Kendrick Lamar, and some awesome vocals by Betty Wright.
Favorite Part: I love the chorus, Betty Wright Kills.
“Niggas over stressing, we under investigation
Every day off to the races, can’t fuck with you if you racist
Beat your ass until you purple
They can’t even tell what your race is
Doctor King meet Dr. Dre
Except this doctor lost all his patience” (1:25)
“So what you look up to?
Fame and fortune, bitches, Porsches
Sources with designer thing
Brand endorsement joining forces with sorcerers signing me
Law enforcement their forces, tortures us with violent speed
Fuck your boss’s employment my joy is to see all you bleed” (3:05)
The outro is also one of the best part with the beat and Betty Wright riding out.

Travis Scott – goosebumps (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

December 19th, 2016


DOWNLOAD MP3 TravisScott-GoosebumpsftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: I get those goosebumps everytime Kendrick goes off.
About Artist: Travis Scott is a 24 year old rapper from Texas. He was a XXL Freshmen in 2013.I saw him perform with Kanye and Chance the Rapper in 2015 and have had my eye more on him since. Kendrick Lamar is hip hop’s west coast king.
About Song: This song is off of Travis Scott’s second album “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight” (2016). I really liked the album, and another song Pick Up the Phone (ft. Young Thug) which was pretty successful (it’s the song with the super mario steel drums).
Favorite Part: Ahhh! This song had me on one for more than a minute in early September. I love the track! I have like four different instrumental/cover versions. I like how the song slowly builds and Travis sounds nice on it. Then Kedrick Lamar comes in and completely destroys it. It’s not a long verse but it kills. Love it.

Kendrick Lamar – Sing About Me (Cover Song by Greg)

January 24th, 2015

DOWNLOAD MP3 KendrickLamar-SingAboutMeCoverByGreg.mp3
Summary: This is not part of the regular blog series… just a shitty cover I did in one take.

This song is a quick first take cover I made of Kendrick Lamar’s masterful “Sing About Me, I’m Dying Of Thirst” (produced by Like of Pac Div).

I originally just wanted to save this song to my Soundcloud account but when I tried to save it I got the following message….

“Our automatic content protection system has detected that your track, “———- ——“, may contain copyright protected content and we’ve blocked it from being published on your profile.”

It feels shitty to be told a small piece of art that you made with love, in appreciation of a great song, is illegal and shall be blocked. Fuck You Soundcloud. How can you supress culture like that?

Lucky for me I pay for my own web host and, at least for now, that web host will still let me host this mp3.

Favorite Part: You have listen to the original song (I don’t do it any justice). The gunshots at the end of the first verse is one of the most power pieces of music that I know.

J. Cole – Forbidden Fruit (ft. Kendrick Lamar) #Summer2013

September 28th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 JCole-ForbiddenFruitftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. Born Sinner was one of great albums this summer with Power Trip, Trouble, and Crooked Smile, Niggaz Know being some of the great songs on the albums.
About Artist: J. Cole was a freshman in the rap game not that many years ago but with his diehard following he continues to climb to new heights. J. Cole is known for his storytelling style and quality albums. Kendrick Lamar, new king of the west coast, stayed hot this summer with songs like How Many Drinks, Robin Thicke’s Give it 2 U, Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (with the Jay-Z feature) and his diss track Control (ft. Big Sean and Jay Electronica).
About Song: Crooked Smile (ft. TLC) should probably hold this spot since it was a Born Sinner track that got considerable airplay but I just like this song was better. Forbidden Fruit is the third single off of Born Sinner but we’ll see how successful it is.

Favorite Part:
The intro with Kendrick singing “oh no” at 0:09.

The bass line throughout the song.

Miguel – How Many Drinks? (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

April 25th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 Miguel-HowManyDrinksRemixftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: Sometimes I just want to be romantic. (Note: getting a woman drunk at the bar so you can take her home isn’t actually romantic)
About Artist: Miguel is an R&B singer from LA. While he’s been around since 2007 he’s only recently gained noteriety. He’s done a couple track wile Wale and J. Cole that I also really like. Kendrick Lamar is a staple on this blog so you probably already know all about the Compton native.
About Song: This song is the third single off of Miguel’s second and highly acclaimed album Kaleidoscope Dream. 

Favorite Part:
Miguel’s voice just makes me melt. He even makes getting girls drunk at the bar sound romantic. Kendrick’s verse is just icing on the cake.

I like in chorus when Miguel sings “back of mind I’m hoping you say 2 or 3”

The music video below is kinda cool too

50 Cent – We Up (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

April 24th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 50Cent-WeUpftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: Escape to 50 Cent’s world of wealth.
About Artist: 50 Cent is the super famous ‘In Da Club’ Queens NY rapper turned business mogul. Kendrick Lamar is the new face of west coast hip hop and of ‘true/real/authentic hip hop’ (whatever that means).
About Song: This song is the third single off of 50 Cents 5th album due out mid 2013 titled ‘Street King Immortal’. It originally featured G-Unit rapper Kidd Kidd but he was cut from the final version.
Favorite Part: Both 50 Cent’s verse and Kednrick’s are pretty good. I like how Kendrick brags about his clean rap sheet. I mostly like the song because the rap and music just fit with each other, and I’ll admit to being a sucker for Kendrick Lamar.

ZZ Ward – Cryin Wolf (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

October 17th, 2012

DOWNLOAD MP3 ZZWard-CryinWolfftKendrickLamar.mp3
Summary: If you liked BlakRoc you’ll love this bluesy song.
About Artist:  This is the first song of ZZ Ward that I’ve discovered but I’m downloading some of her mixtapes and past projects as we speak. Apparntly she did a cover of a Childish Gambino song and has worked with Pete Rock in the studio? I don’t know enough at the moment but I would say looking into more of her stuff is a must! Kendrick Lamar is like my favorite rapper right now. From LA etc etc just look at past posts of mine by Kendrick Lamar.
About Song: Is off her debut album which dropped yesterday called Till The Casket Drops (too soon after the Clipse’s album IMO). I’m about to listen to the album now but she seems very ‘Adele’ or ‘Lana Del Rey’ to me so far.
Favorite Part: I really really like the bluesyness, which is also why I LOVED BlakRoc. I like when it breaks down with the claps, I love ZZ Wards voice and harmonies, and of course Kendrick’s verse specifically this part

“Don’t forget about us, don’t forget about trust
Don’t forget about the kinkiness of playin with the cuffs
on the bedspring penetrate the loud screams echoin the hallways is a must”(2:30-2:40)

Kendrick Lamar – Backseat Freestyle (Prod. By Hit-Boy)

October 16th, 2012

DOWNLOAD MP3 KendrickLamar-BackseatFreestyleprodbyHitBoy.mp3
Summary: Another instant classic brought to you by Kendrick Lamar. Look out for “Good Kid, Mad City” dropping Monday October 22nd (AND HE’S GONNA BE ON TUCSON THAT DAY!)
About Artist:  The new prince of the west coast, Kendrick Lamar is carrying the torch for LA with all the style, grit, lyricism and originality that LA has been known for. While is legacy is still in the making Kendrick has all the makings of a king. His authenticity and pure talent vaults him into discussions of ‘best rapper alive’ and he shines as a beacon that Hip Hop is still alive!
About Song: This song is a track that was just recently released here on soundcloud. It is one of the tracks off of Kendrick’s first commerical album Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. The first single off of the album Recipe I really really like but it never blew up on the radio (my guess because it had the word Weed in the chorus). Following that single was Swimming Pools (Drank) which I do hear on the radio a lot. Anyway, back to this song, it ir produced by Hit-Boy which, coincidentadnly, produced another jam that I was totoally into and posted on here a couple days ago Higher.
Favorite Part:
Well first off the track is dope! The f-ing bell-chime things and the arrindindin arrindindin get me hyped!

Lay on Kendricks flow over that and it just goes hard!

Kendrick doesn’t go off lyrically like he somtimes does but check out the Rap Genius link below because there are some crazy references.

Kendrick Lamar – Fuck Your Ethnicity

August 26th, 2011

DOWNLOAD MP3 KendrickLamar-FuckYourEthnicity.mp3
Summary: Kendrick Lamar is the best up and coming rapper. Bring the West Coast back with a vengance.
About Artist: Kendrick Lamar is a young Compton rapper who has been hailed as the next king of the west. He has amazing lyrical ability and speaks truth with an unmatched authenticity. Kendrick Lamar is currently my favorite rapper. I got to see him recently in his hometown of LA and was blown away. His live performance had so much energy and he was even better live than he sounds on his records. The show started a little late only because Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg showed up to watch. Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Kurupt, Game, Big Sean and Snoop all graced the stage to come out and support Kendrick who has very quicky gained the respect of the entire hip hop community.
About Song: This song is the intro to Kendrick Lamar’s recent and highly regarded project Section.80.
Favorite Part:
“Fire burning inside my eyes
This the music that saved my life
Y’all be calling it hip-hop
I be calling it hypnotize
Yeah, hypnotize

WATCH Kendrick Lamar in LA Clip

Trapped my body but freed my mind
What the fuck is you fighting for?
Ain’t nobody gonna win that war
My details be retail
Man, I got so much in store
Racism is still alive
Yellow tape and colored lines” (1:03-1:22)

“I mosh pit
Had a microphone and I tossed it
Had a brain, then I lost it
I’m out of my mind, so don’t
You mind how much the cost is
Penny for my thoughts
Everybody, please hold up your wallets” (1:45-1:53)
