Kendrick Lamar's eagerly awaited debut, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, drops October 22nd and "Art of Peer Pressure" has been "leaked" in advance of that. It's unclear at this point if the tune is on the new album or not, but enjoy it nonetheless.
I can feel this week's album's energy from two planets away. I got my drink, I got my music, I will share it, but today I'm yelling. Yelling about a 2012 hip-hop breakthrough and the subject of this week's Counterbalance, that is.
OK, this is a hot one. Critically acclaimed young rapper Kendrick Lamar remixes Emeli Sandé's "Next to Me", which was one of 2012's most addictive songs. Lamar's verse introduces the tune and Brit Award winner Sandé takes it from there.
