Kendrick Lamar – Backseat (Freestyle) [Prod. by Hit-Boy]

If you’re not bouncing off the walls waiting for good kid, m.A.A.d city, I’m not sure what will get you goin. The sophomore album from the Compton kid Kendrick Lamar is shaping up to be the biggest release in a while and the fact that TDE got scooped up into the Dr. Dre’s Aftermath collective suggests that the biggest players in the business agree. On another note, is there anything that Hit-Boy touches that isn’t certified gold?

ZZ Ward – Cryin’ Wolf ft. Kendrick Lamar

In the biggest surprise of the day for me thus far, we get a new Kendrick Lamar which is always good news. The surprise comes from the fact that its on a track from ZZ Ward a vocalist that’s been bubbling under the surface for most of this year and now ready to make her move to the big time. This track has an amazing mix of blues and hip-hop and serves as the first single off her debut album Til the Casket Drops, due out on October 16th. I know I’m all ears on this chick from here on out so get at her Facebook to stay updated and check her official site for more premieres leading up to the album’s full release!

Here’s the second of the night. Among the latest, of three newly released tracks, is arguably the most anticipated of all the song on the album: “They Ready” featuring J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T. and Kendrick Lamar. Like “Hip Hop” before it, “They Ready” is another strong offering, and never falls short of lyrical ferocity.  From Cole, who also produced the record, to K.R.I.T. to Lamar, everybody came to win.
