Kendrick Lamar – “Sing That Shit” (20 syl Juicy Remix)
Remember that one time Kendrick Lamar absolutely destroyed somebody on their own track? What’s that, you need more details? The one from the West Coast. Yeah, The Game. Think back to early 2012, when “The City” dropped. Not only did Kendrick have an impressive chorus, but he absolutely blacked out on the last verse to easily outshine his fellow Compton native. Today, we hear an absolutely incredible re-working of Kendrick’s verse courtesy of electronic producer 20 syl. The verse is actually repeated twice, but with different effects. As many times as I’ve heard a Kendrick Lamar remix in recent years, I have to say that this is one of the best. Stream “Sing That Shit” below. Props to HillyDilly.
Christian Rich saw fit to remake their own production recently, intensifying the instrumentation from Childish Gambino‘s “Crawl.” New layers give the dark, otherworldly-sounding track an even more alien-like feel. Stream the modified version of “Crawl” below.
We know the drill by now- Kendrick Lamar guest verses can either start firestorms, or fade into the background. This time around, we’re listening to Flying Lotus‘s “Never Catch Me,” which is set to be featured on his forthcoming You’re Dead! album. Anticipation has been heavy for this record since rumors of its existence started . . .
North Carolina’s Joe Trufant resurfaces to give us visuals for his highly-anticipated video “Nike Checks.” A lot has happened since we featured Joe’s “Party Talk” here on AM. He also gave us a 7 track EP entitled Better Off Without Me in January. Since then Joe has been a recluse and is hardly on social . . .
Quavo might have the most juice, but Offset continues to remind us that he can make great music by himself. His latest, “Monday,” is a melody driven, addicting new joint produced by OG Parker and Deko. There’s no word on where this song will end up at, but I feel confident in saying that it’ll . . .
Tre Amani switches things up on his new single, “Somebody.” Sometimes we create our best work going through our greatest hardships in life. When Brent Faiyaz flew Tre’ out to Los Angeles, the up and coming emcee had a lot weighing on his mind. Thanks to some trial and error, and a little bit of soul searching, . . .
