Download: Kendrick Lamar: Swimming Pools (Drank)
This song is an answer to all those people that claim that Kendrick doesn’t have what it takes to make it big on the mainstream regardless of his lyrical talent. With this song, he proves that he not only has the ability to craft quality verses with unique concepts and undeniably outstanding flows, but can also create an artistic song enjoyable not only for the hip hop heads, but also for the pop masses out there.
That hook was infectious. Kendrick has come a long way. And he has a long run awaiting him..
This song instantly started trending when they dropped it and it remained as the #2 trend on Twitter for a solid hour. It’s still trending now. 6:00 pm.
I can guarantee you Kendrick’s album is going platinum. Not a doubt in my mind. I haven’t met someone who doesn’t like him. As Dre puts it: “he has a presence similar to that of Em or 50.”
platinum? not one song on the radio? his not nwa! first song about weed, now this one about drank, this is good better then the first one but i want to hear a powerful song like hi power or a world wide topic song or a song with more then just one topic from him not a song that ppl will drink and drive to maybe im being to logical with that last part
Hmm looks like I was sleepin on Kendrick a bit…
Brandon your a fuckin idiot, open your ears. It doesnt matter that the song has to do with drinking, its how he uses his lyricism to make a great song. and people dont wanna hear 15 tracks on a album that are all like hi power. and not one song on the radio is not his fault, its this fucked up world where dumbass frat faggets would rather listen to flo rida than real hip hop.
any motha fuckcan way lol grammar cheak! shots at jimmy! its friday friday, im high, drunk….. well if u dont like the radio don’t listen….. dont blame u at all. nate the mack i would kill my motha fucking self for 15 tracks of hi power! Frightening, so f-cking frightening! a nigga can dream doe
lmao nigga your killin me right now, I feel you though.. about the kendrick thing and the friday thing.
The song has more meaning then just drinking though..
Will Kendrick go platinum? I don’t know, I still know people who don’t know who he is (which sucks but that’s how it is!)
Nigga has talent though as long as his loyal fans support him hes gonna do well, even without
the flows he use on this track is something ive never heard of! never heard anything so smooth. why waste it rapping about something that kills more ppl then just about anything in the world! the world would be boring with out drinks but so much better! niggas don’t need to hear songs that will make them do dumb shit! niggas need to hear high power every day, if we as a black race are going to change. nothing less then hi power
you brandon, i kinda agree with you, but check it man, every artist tends to have some mainstream tracks on their albums you know. plus its still too early to judge, his album doesn’t drop till oct, and from what dude has shown us, he talks a lot about everyday struggles man, just let dude come through with his album and just enjoy his music till them
u said u have no idea what im talking about! hum have you every seen some one get there head blow off! have you every seen sum one get their head cut of in a car crash cuz they was drunk! stick to what u said at first keeping thinking im dumb. this song is not that great no one will care 2 months from now about it. watch this nigga next song be about something else that kills an spreads stds at a all time high, his going to make the next song on one topic sex, fucking, and more sex. so lets all just smoke, drink, an fuck all day til we die while the white man makes all the money an take care of their kids while niggas play madden all day
your fucking stupid brandon. your reasonings for this not being a good song is ridiculous. You dont know shit about hip hop
your fucking stupid i never said the song wasnt good i said i liked it but ….anyway u probably a white fucking cracker so i dont care what u think. fuck up!
does it matter if im white or not, and its okay for you to say white cracker but if i said your a black nigger you prolly wouldnt like it would you?? anyways i have no other words for you but your fuckin stupid and uneducated. lol bitch
yo brandon! you got no idea what you saying at all fan.
yo ill i gives no fucks
album is shaping up to be a classic
Well, that took all of 10 minutes.
I swear people don’t know what a CLASSIC is anymore…
and i suppose you do?
same douche who calls every lil wayne song/album/mixtape a classic, theres one or 2 classics a year MAYBE, niggas call like 4 or 5 albums classics a year, a classic is something u can listen to 10 years from now and still appreciate it the same way u did when u first listened to it
his been told that shit many times be 4! yet he still says it. jim is a pure pot head who has the mind set of sum one who smokes k2 100% troll at all times every thing he says he thinks is 100% real an 100% fake at the same time, there is no one on the earth like him. his face reminds me of a high lil b with no purpose, no goal, his just there to rap about anything an say any think that comes to his head, with out thinking for a sec be 4 he say it. mfjones there is a classic maybe every 4 years be for real. hit like if u don’t agree!
That is the worst grammar Ive ever seen. Ur parents must be proud.
Thank u base god
he got the shovel smashed face with the emo glasses and the “i get no pussy” shave job wearing a lanyard like its 1998
@yahoo-LI5EF6TTYICQI7EOPEA2S7UA3E:disqus, yea i do agree with that, thats why i was sayin MAYBE just to be nice, but yea classics are hard to come by,people throw that word around too much, peoples standards of music are way too low
everything is free now….. so u can’t blame them. if i was a rapper i would try to make 10 great songs. get rich! then put out lazy shit in fuck bad bitches in my mansion. people are going to say u suck even when your the best so it doesn’t matter.
I bang wit’ it.
im preety sure in the picture above his wearing skinny jeans why niggas not hating on that? song is nice doe
Its actually slacks rolled up, he looks like a hipy, and he pulls it off. Much better than leopard print skinny jeans.
man i know i know. i was just saying if he was wearing skinny jeans would it matter?
Villain where you at? People dont realize this dude is top 5 alive.
damn straight. every track hes on his verse steals the show. i can honestly say ive never heard a bad song from K Dot. this is gonna be even better than Section.80 and thats a classic imo
GOAT in the making?
Can’t argue it.
despite having new shit from Nas and Frank Ocean im gonna listen to Kendrick the rest of the night b/c of this track
hooks kinda weird
im glad i can call him my favorite rapper –
I see these comments, and him being top 5 I wouldn’t go that far yo lol, nowadays everybody calling decent rappers top something but he definitely putting the west back on the map
then name 5 in the game better than him? ..that are relevant. and if hes “decent” then everyone else is just wack and hip hop is really dead
jay-z nas jada em fab
I’ll give you jay z em and nas, but fab? seriously. fab only does punchlines and kendrick makes real music that doesnt sound like the same flow on every song.
crooked i and game didnt put the west back on?
holla at me when crooked makes a hit record, game got three plats and top ten rap songs, but he on some other shit he rather throw shots at nigga then worried about his craft
game gave light back to the west in 2004, the last album was solid but he worried about other niggas to much
the cartoons song is better than this
Dude probably dropped this track now to promote himself, I’m pretty sure it’ll be a club banger this summer yo!
