I only discovered Kendrick Lamar this past year but I quickly became a fan shortly after, hearing tracks like “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Poetic Justice,” “Swimming Pools,” “Collard Queens,” “She Needs Me,” “No Makeup” … the list could go on. But when I found “The Recipe,” I think I had this song on repeat for a week.
The one and only Dr. Dre makes an appearance on the track, which debuted as a single from his first major label good kid, m.A.A.d city in 2012. The song gives props to some of Lamar’s favourite cities, but his main focus is on L.A. and the best of what it has to offer: women, weed and weather. The bottom line? There’s nothing like Cali.For.N.I.A.
Wha-what more can I say, w-welcome to L.A.!
