Now Playing :: Kendrick Lamar :: Swimming Pools (Drank)

“Why you babysittin’ only two or three shots?”

Fresh on iTunes, Kendrick Lamar’s latest single delves into alcoholism, and fitting in through that very method.

I’m not much for buying singles, or really even listening to singles – I’d rather wait out the album and enjoy the whole cohesive experience. To me, THAT is Hip Hop. In our genre, singles have a tendency to suck it up, meddled with by the label decision makers and doctored for catchiness, and radio play – they’re usually terrible in the first place.

It’s safe to ignore those warnings when you’re talking about Kendrick Lamar.

Now I done grew up round some people living their life in bottles
Granddaddy had the golden flask, back stroke every day in Chicago
Some people like the way it feels, some people wanna kill their sorrows
Some people wanna fit in with the popular, that was my problem
