Kendrick Lamar - 'Swimming Pools (Drank)'

A taster of something that's gonna be big

Photo: PA
Deep. Dark. Heavy. Bassy. Tackling the perils of having a drinking problem (“some people wanna kill their sorrows”). Yeah, it’s refreshing hearing a US rapper on the cusp of superstardom (Dr Dre is FULLY behind him) tackling real-life problems in a ‘hey, I’m just sayin’’ kind of way. The album’s out in October. It’s gonna be big.
