You should all know Kendrick Lamar at this point, either because of his excellent single, “Swimming Pools (Drank)” or because he is Dr. Dre’s newest protege. However, if you didn’t know about him before today, well, you now have another reason to recognize him as one of rap’s newest all stars. His second single off of his upcoming full length, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, is “Westside, Right On Time” and it lives up to all expectations. The song has a “Summertime“-esque beat to it, and with Lamar and Jeezy blowing up the vocals on this track, “Westside, Right On Time” is an instand banger.
I really did not need another reason to love Kendrick, but I think “Westside, Right On Time” has done it. Combining the simplicity of a G-Funk beat (a Dre staple) and a few solid verses has created a track that makes us here at WGWI that much more excited for Kendrick’s full length. good kid, m.A.A.d. city will be out in stores on October 2nd, but get in the spirit by listening to “Westside, Right On Time” below.
