Remember when J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar were supposed to be recording a whole album together? Well, that never happened and is going to be filed next to K.R.I.T. and Yelawolf’s joint project for the time being. In the meantime, DJ Khaled has unearthed a track that we can only assume is from those sessions. This time, they added Krizzle to the mix, creating a soulful, slapping track.
As for the song itself, it only highlights the fact that Kendrick Lamar has been batting 1.000 for the last year and a half or so as he spazzes out over a surprisingly knocking J. Cole beat. K. Dot has entered that territory of guaranteed gold when he drops a guest verse. And the world is a better place for it.
“They Ready” was probably the most anticipated song on Khaled’s album and, now that the Nas/Scarface collaboration dropped, we no longer have any need to pay any more attention to Khaled’s fifth album. Yay!
