Kendrick Lamar’s rapid rise to the top shows no sign of letting up, dropping the first video from his major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city for the second single Swimming Pools (Drank), an introspective look into society, his father and his own dependence on alcohol.
With the amount of hype surrounding Kendrick right now compared to a a year ago, or even just a few months ago, and still another two months until the album’s release, I’d be very surprised if it’s not one of the biggest hip-hop breakthroughs of the past five years or so!
Not much has been confirmed for the album to date but if Wikipedia is to be believed, it will feature a Dr Dre produced Eminem collaboration by the name of Her Will, which if true, is something to get very excited about!
For now though, check out the Swimming Pools (Drank) video below, which is a very bold choice for an introductory mainstream single but hopefully a perfect choice and let me know your thoughts!
