New Music: Kendrick Lamar f/ Drake – ‘Poetic Justice’

Kendrick Lamar and Drake

Kendrick Lamar and Drake join forces on their highly-anticipated collaboration “Poetic Justice.”

The Compton MC and Canadian superstar trade verses about their special lady over the smooth Scoop DeVille-produced beat, which samples Janet Jackson’s 1994 hit “Any Time, Any Place.”

“A fatal attraction is common and what we have common is pain,” raps K-Dot, while Drizzy rhymes, “I can never write my wrongs unless I write ‘em down for real.”

“Poetic Justice” appears on Kendrick’s debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, in stores Monday.

    @Pereezy YMCMB MMG, no just no. Don’t take Kendrick’s shine away from him and praise Young Money for something they had nothing to do with. Sure Drake’s on the track but its Kendricks song and Drake’s just a feature to get the song some popularity.

    Its a grower. I don’t love the sample choice ..maybe if they used the chorus of the original song or something. Verses are cool.

    I hope Kendrick puts his girlfriend in the video for this song.

    @WhoCares, that would be so dope! As long as he’s been with her, I don’t think he would fuck up her privacy & expose her to the industry world tho…

    @wqw, I’m a huge fan of everything Kendrick’s put out since Kendrick EP and Im on listen 4 front to back. I’m giving it a 8.2/10 so far. Starts off incredibly strong, doesn’t fade but loses track of the premisis when it preaches in the last 1/4. Great corner stone to build a long career off of

    The fucking irony of a Drake/Kendrick collab and Cole isn’t even on the album …. wait, scratch that … is Cole even ALIVE, dammit?!

    Song is fire, tho.

  22. booooo

    This shit is weak. The sample flip was weak. Janets voice continuously going creates CLUTTER, I don’t even know what to focus on. Chorus is terrible. I’d rather hear the original Janet track… seriously… considering the means that these guys have access to, this is the best they can come up with? BOOO NIGGA BOOO

    Anyone talking about this is dope, is on some dick riding shit.

    very nice song overrall, but kendricks chorus is not good, not horrible, but not good either, should’ve just used Janets sample maybe chopped it up or something, would’ve sounded better. Seems like he’s trying too hard.

    this is garbage, he shouldn’t have touched this song. I hope people really don’t bump this. He ruined a classic.

    Glad they’re giving props to Miss Janet, but this song doesn’t do the original justice. Bummer.

    Whatever. Always love seeing great artists getting some love. Janet is a legend.

    Man…if kendrick would have maybe had Kanye flip this original sample this would’ve been truly epic. how he did Mercy or OTIS for example, genius

    Jade Reply:

    @shailin, yesssss, good idea. The song isn’t bad, but if you’re gonna sample Janet’s song, do it better.

    All these Drake dick riders in the comments.

    Where is the TDE love at? Expect to hear this on the radio for the next 5 months. Along with other tracks from one of the best debut albums in history.

  32. trigga

    don’t feel this! usually love nearly everything drizzy touches, but chorus and sample are both too weak … (props to ms jackson though, her songs still good!)
    but kendrick lamar seems not to be very inspired and its like you heard about thousands songs you know already sound similar!
