Kendrick Lamar – A.D.H.D.

Got a high tolerance when your age don’t exists…”

I just landed in the Dominican Republic for my gig tonight at their fashion week. It’s burning hot and I’m still zoned from my flight where I must have listened to my new favorite song A.D.H.D. for 2 hours straight. Chances are you’ve never heard of Kendrick Lamar but it’s time to get familiar because the dude for Compton is pure talent and he’s…

Got the cultivating music that be captivating he, who listens…” – Snoop Dogg (Gin & Juice)

Where do I even start with A.D.H.D.? The song is an encapsulation of everything and anything relating to modern youth experience in America. Some people will kill me for saying this but not since Reasonable Doubt have I heard an introspect that resonates so deeply in my experience and that of the people around me. The song writing is incredible, the irony of the hook, song title and lyrics and emotional play is pure genius. The balance of insecurity, confidence, party, serious issues, pop, underground drugs and girls is, well, life. I know a lot of song writers who always talk about doing something like this but actually pulling it off, damn. What’s really crazy is this is that this isn’t a conscious song, it’s not a party record, it’s not an attempt at anything. For lack of better expression, it’s just real talk…

I’m in the house party trip pin off my generation
Sippin cough syrup like its water, never no pancakes in the kitchen
Man, no wonder our lives is caught up in the daily superstition
That the world is bout to end, who gives a fuck? we never do listen
Unless it comes with an 808, a melody and some hoes
Playstation and some drank, technology bought my soul
Looking around and all I see is a big crowd, that’s product of me
And they probably relatives, relevant for a rebel’s dream
Yep, her president is black, she black too
Purple label on her back but that tab is light blue
She take it straight to the head, then she look at me
She got AD-HD…”

I could literally write an essay about this track but I have to get ready for tonight. Throw this one on, ride to it, chill to it and get familiar with Kendrick Lamar, I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of him in the near future. I’m down here with Luka from Like Diamonds and as usual he’s ready to rock and this hotel is live with all the fashion stuff going on. I’ll check back tomorrow, in the meantime I got ADHD…

8 doobies to the face, f*%k dat…”
