Kendrick Lamar has had quite a momentous year with a bunch of features on several rappers’ albums and now being nominated for a few Grammys’. He has proven himself a capable and even insightful rapper with his critically acclaimed album “good kid, m.A.A.d. city”.
I am a recent listener to Kendrick Lamar and I am now a loyal fan. I haven’t heard a single song or feature with him that I don’t like. ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)” is one of his best songs which never gets old no matter how many times you hear it. The music video is also great with the lost of control or willingness for self-destruction in the over-consumption of alcohol. The shots of Lamar falling through the air captures that descent into the abyss that is liquor in excess.
