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.
