So, I’ve slowly but surely been falling in lurve with Kendrick Lamar. Lady Gaga is such a big fan of the Compton rapper, people thought they were dating for a little while. Luckily, it was just a rumor so I can continue to fantasize uninterrupted, lol. I heart Kendrick (who rightfully won the BET Hip Hop Award for Lyricist of the Year– beating out Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Nas)! And I love this new song, Poetic Justice which features a verse from recent high school graduate Drake and the perfect sample from Janet Jackson‘s Anytime, Anyplace (I think we can assume Kendrick‘s song’s title is a shouts-out to Janet‘s 1993 movie of the same name). The song has a totally sexy, totally mellow feel (the Chopped & Screwed helps… so does Janet), and then it gets really Compton in the last few seconds. So yeah. My kinda track :)
Kendrick Lamar‘s highly-anticipated debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city hits stores tomorrow, October 22.
