But don’t forget about Compton. Perhaps a substantial understatement, Kendrick Lamar has done well for himself by linking up with both old school and new school talent as his rise to the top has unfolded. A follow-up to his first banger with Dr. Dre, “The Recipe,” Lamar unleashes his latest “Compton” alongside Dr. Dre with a production assist by Just Blaze. Honoring their hometown, the production value is taken to a whole new level as Lamar opens up the track before a hook cuts in with a harmonious ode to Compton. Exchanging verses, both Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar flow over Just Blaze’s always consistent beats with a synergy that reaffirms Lamar’s position alongside the ranks of seasoned veterans that he’s been aligning himself with as of late.
