Listen: Kendrick Lamar’s New Single, “The Recipe,” Featuring Dr. Dre

    One of our most anticipated singles of 2012 has finally arrived. It’s Kendrick Lamar’s “The Recipe,” which should serve as the lead track off his new album through Top Dawg Entertainment’s deal with Aftermath/Interscope. It also features a guest feature from Dr. Dre, who’s clearly spitting some bars written by his protege.

    And why not? Dre actually sounds pretty damn good spitting just like Lamar, who, of course, rips it. He’s become one of the most consistent rappers of the past few years, and that remains true whether he’s impressing us with technical displays or sing-songing his way through hooks.
