Advised Viewing: Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank)

The artists with the most style aren’t the ones constantly reiterating it through their lyrics. They don’t have to. Kendrick is one of those dudes. Rarely talks about it, just has it. Check out his steez in the new video for his latest single “Swimming Pools”. Be on the lookout for Kendrick’s debut album ‘good kid, … Continue reading

Advised Viewing: Hypetrak TV: Kendrick Lamar – Legacy In The Making

Kendrick rocks his John Lennon shades while sitting down for an interview with Hypetrak TV.  How does he plan on keeping his legacy alive while maintaining a level of respect from the people of Comptom?

Loved the original, so Kendrick hoping on this remix is just a huge bonus. Great hearing two genres collaborate.

Advised Listening: Game – The R.E.D. Album

Admittedly, I’ve been off Game for a little while now. But I’m happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised by The R.E.D. Album. I feel like Game really grew & expanded his seemingly (at least to me), rather recent, strictly gangsta-rap stint. Here are a few of my favorite tracks which include some great … Continue reading
