Kendrick Lamar "Backseat Freestyle" / 'good kid, m.A.A.d. city' (30-second previews)
Published Oct 15, 2012Kendrick Lamar drops his good kid, m.A.A.d. city next Tuesday (October 22) via Aftermath/Interscope, but the Compton rapper's album track "Backseat Freestyle" was recently leaked through BBC Radio, albeit in censored form. You can catch the expletive-free radio rip down below.
The Hit-Boy-produced track coasts on a simple, chimes-assisted beat, with Lamar going off hard on how he wants to take over the world. In particular, he hopes to sex-up the globe for at least 72 hours with his Eiffel Tower-sized ding-a-ling. If you see something blocking out the sun extra early today, you now know the reason.
Also, 30-second snippets from the album have made their way online, and you can sample bite-sized chunks of jazzy but lyrically dark slow jam "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" and the late '80s soft pop hook behind "Now or Never," among others, down below too.
