Compton California is the hometown of hip hops very own King Kendrick. Listen to your majesty tell us about his city. Teaming up with De. Dre who adds a verse and Just Blaze with the production, Kendrick has the whole court listening! If Compton had a national rap team, these guys would sure be the all-stars.

Just Blaze brings us a highly produced gem on this one. Paired with Kendrick’s lyrics it’s both raw and catchy. “King Kendrick and I meant it/ my point intended is raw,” raps Lamar. It’s a perfect pop rap anthem that oozes that classic west coast vibe to pass the day riding with your top low down the avenue. It even ends with same Roger Troutman auto tuned feel of “California Love.”

It’s the closing track off of Good Kid, M.A.A.D City which is scheduled for release Oct. 22nd.
