Kendrick Lamar - Determined

By | 7 years ago
Track: Determined
Producer: Soundwave
Album: Kendrick Lamar: The EP

In summer of ‘08, a West Coast up-and-comer by the name of K. Dot brought us Hater Love, a single which met a lukewarm response from Booth readers. Though many praised Cool & Dre‘s production, the consensus seemed to be that the artist’s Weezy-inspired flow and delivery weren’t cutting it. Well, a lot can change in a year. Fast-forward to fall ‘09 and the emcee’s back on our front page with a new stage name and a sound so different that I initially had a hard time believing K. Dot and Kendrick Lamar were the same person. This newly-leaked track off the artist’s forthcoming, self-titled EP finds Lamar more Determined than ever to win over the Booth readership. Accompanied by Soundwave‘s uptempo, piano-string-brass boardwork (anyone recognize the samples?), the artist describes his towering ambitions in agile, propulsively-flowed verses. Digging this rising star’s overhauled rhyme style? Keep it locked to for the latest on Kendrick Lamar: The EP, due out “soon.”
