Kendrick Lamar recalls that the first song he made with Dr. Dre was "good kid, m.A.A.d city" track "Compton."
Kendrick Lamar recently offered some details on his first meeting with Dr. Dre
and explained that the first song he recorded with The Good Doctor was
‘Compton.’ The track appears as the last song on Lamar’s recently
release album ‘good kid, m.A.A.d. city.’
explained that he was well aware of the stakes when he was first
introduced to the iconic rapper. “I was very excited [when I first met
Dr. Dre], I wasn’t nervous at all. I was more excited because I knew
that this was my shot,” Lamar told i-D Magazine.
‘Compton’ isn’t just the first thing he worked on with Dre, but also
represents the work he put in before making it. “Everything that I
worked for, everything that I built up to came down to that moment…that
moment, I recorded my first song with Dre, which was ‘Compton,’ which is
the last song on my album,” said Lamar.
The track not only features Dr. Dre but also includes production from Just Blaze.
