It’s not “Detox” but it’s a new Dr Dre song as well as a new single from the future of West Coast Hip Hop Kendrick Lamar. Check out the single (above), read about it (below) and make sure you check out the Ballislife High School All-American Game this Saturday with special guest Kendrick Lamar. Will there be a live performance of “The Recipe?”
Dre Dre & Kendrick Lamar talked to L.A.’s Power 106’s Big Boy about Lamar’s new single, “The Recipe.”
“The Recipe,” originally titled “Women, Weed & Weather,” is an ode to the essentials of West Coast living. “When you discuss your love for lust/ Just make sure you visit here first/ Cali,” Kendrick Lamar rhymes on “Recipe.”
“Old title was ‘Women, Weed & Weather,’ Dre told Big Boy. ‘That’s the three things you need in life. ‘The Recipe’ is when you mix it all up,’ Lamar chimed in.
The feel-good cut, produced by Scoop DeVille, will reportedlyl be featured on K.Dot’s upcoming Aftermath/Interscope/ Top Dawg Entertainment debut album.
“This track was done by a guy named Scoop DeVille, and we just went into the studio and added our elements to it. I mixed it up. Kendrick wrote the words. It came together and we fell in love with it,” Dre said.
