Published Oct 22, 2012Kendrick Lamar let loose his anticipated good kid, m.A.A.d. city solo LP this morning (October 22), but the Compton spitter hasn't exactly forgotten his buddies in the process. On top of the standard release, another pair of tracks dropped today that celebrate not only the budding superstar, but some of his pals from the Black Hippy project.
First up, Kendrick revealed a strings-laden, non-album track called "The Heart Pt. 3 (Will You Let It Die)" that not only features verses from him in which he discusses the pressure of being heralded as the next 2Pac, but also some bars from Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. You can check it out in the SoundCloud player below.
On top of that team-up, you can also check out another Black Hippy reunion via a remix of Lamar's ambiguous alcohol jam "Swimming Pools (Drank)", with newly added rhymes courtesy of Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul. This take on the track is available as an exclusive bonus track on U.S. chain Target's version of good kid, m.A.A.d. city, and you can listen to it in the player down below.
