Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank) [Video]


Compton, CA – This had to get a post! Kendrick Lamar brings us a video for his newest song “Swimming Pool” which discusses pressures to drink as a young man in his environment. What always seems brilliant about Kendrick’s music to me is how he can make a song that aesthetically sounds cool but for has a conscious conversation for anyone who listens to the things he’s talking about.

Mark my words: In five years he’ll be talked about as one of the best lyricists ever. Enjoy.

An engaging combination of education, experience and vision, Brown continues to make his mark on many fronts and plant his flag as a professional on the rise. Entrenched in the urban music scene for more than half a decade, Bizz launched Crack House Radio in 2004.

Over that time, Bizz interviewed countless artists and professionals including Belly, Bishop, Drake, Classified, Guru, Joell Ortiz, author and gang specialist Michael Chettleburg, Brent (owner of Just Ent) & many others. In 2007, Bizz joined Urbanology Magazine as a staff writer and would go on to contribute dozens of articles over the next three years including a cover story on Classified in 2009. 2007 also saw the launch of Bizz' line of t-shirts reading "Hip Hop Ain't Dead It Lives In The North." Since then, he's toured with Peter Jackson, Busta Rhymes, DJ Dames Nellas, Bishop, Slaughterhouse & Pharoahe Monch and secured a strong following with his column on called "The Fine Print."
