“Thank You” F. Kendrick Lamar (Prod. Jake One)

    With his new project, Tha Influence, readying for release, West Coast native Scoe (formerly known as Roscoe) serves up the latest sample, “Thank You”–an ode to one of his homestate’s true hip-hop pioneers: Dr. Dre. The track gathers the talents of two of the Doctor’s recent collaborators, Black Hippy MC Kendrick Lamar (“The Recipe“) and acclaimed producer Jake One (“3 Kings“), who help bolster the banger with dexterous lyricism and thumping, bluesy production, respectively. This is so West Coast you feel like a blunt is nothing short of a necessity. [2DBZ]
