Happy Friday, gentlemen. It’s been a cool minute since Kendrick dropped a record and with anticipation for good kid, m.A.A.d city skyrocketing the prince of Compton gives us “Swimming Pool (Drank).” K.Dot’s Midas Touch still hasn’t shown any signs of weakness and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say he’s had a near-perfect field goal percentage for the last two years, if not longer.The Houston-influenced track produced by T-Minus definitely has riding-music potential. Though the sound is probably a bit more commercial that some would like from him, the man still found a way to keep his signature style completely intact even sneaking a bit of depth into his bars.

Whether the combination of this and “The Recipe” can launch K. Dot into mainstream crossover success has yet to be determined. At this rate, though, the album’s quality is something not many are questioning.
