Kendrick Lamar-Backseat Freestyle

good kid, m.A.A.d city is only 6 days away, and Kendrick fires out a track from the project to whet appetites ahead of that album release. If that wasn’t enough to interest you, know that hip-hop’s in-form producer Hit-Boy is the man that helms this one.

The production is shrill, clanky and packed full of speaker-rattling bass, making for one that has a slightly more underground hip-hop flavour than Kendrick’s choices of late. The switch in style means Kendrick adjusts his delivery slightly, with his work being much more intense and powerful, particularly in aggressive bursts scattered throughout the track. The laidback Kendrick (and most rappers, in truth) would be engulfed by this production, but Kendrick switches things skilfully to command the beat well. As of late, Hit-Boy and Kendrick can seemingly do no wrong, and for the latter that’s a great sign with the LP on the horizon.
