Kendrick Lamar - "The Recipe" (Feat. Dr. Dre)

Dr. Dre might not have too much to do with the current rap landscape, but he’s been singing the praises of the katana-sharp young Compton MC Kendrick Lamar since before most of us ever heard of him. And now that Kendrick is a part of Dre’s Aftermath roster, he’s got a rare Dre appearance on his next album’s first single. (Dre doesn’t produce the track, though; Scoop Deville is the party responsible.) It’s called “The Recipe,” and it’s a welcome indication that Kendrick’s steely-eyed polysyllabic style will survive the transition into the glossy rap overground in which he now finds himself. Listen to the Twin Sister-sampling track below.

Kendrick’s album Good Kid In A Mad City is due sometime this year on Aftermath/Interscope.
