What a good day to be from LA.
Last night, Compton native Kendrick Lamar won two Grammy awards for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for his hit single, “I.” Well deserved. Listen to his latest track he released today, “The Blacker the Berry.”
Plus, the trailer to the “Straight Outta Compton” biopic about the West Coast hip hop group, NWA, was released today. I can’t wait to see the film! I don’t think NWA was dangerous; I think the group was misunderstood. They actually brought up a lot of social issues and wanted change in South Central LA. “Our art is a reflection of our reality.” Watch below.
I like how chill the beat is (well, chill for a L.A. native anyway), and I know it will sound great in the car. And damn, those lyrics.
