Take one of the most buzzed-about new artists in the industry, throw him top of a smooth sample, add some trunk-rattling bass, leave to cook in the Cali sun, garnish with the guest bars of a living hip-hop legend and voilà—you’ve got a smash-hit debut single on your hands. The inaugural release off Kendrick Lamar‘s freshman set, The Recipe is a suitably spectacular coming-out party for the Los Angeles phenom and longtime Booth fave. Scoop Deville performs one of the most ingenious sample flips I’ve heard in a long minute, spinning the opening lines of indie-rockers Twin Sister’s sleepy Meet the Frownies into the centerpiece of a slow-rolling West Coast groove, garnished with pizzicato hooks and catchy string flourishes. Lamar keeps it swagged-out yet chill on the lyrical tip, oozing self-confidence as he rhapsodizes about the “women, weed and weather” that make his hometown heaven on earth. Dr. Dre (Executive Producer of Kendrick’s LP) concurs with his young homie’s assessment on the front, evoking the wonderful feeling of waking up for another day’s grind in the City of Angels. Feeling it? Then stay tuned; while Good Kid in a Mad City has yet to receive a drop date, we’ll keep you supplied with all the latest news and tunes.
