If you've had even a passing interest in hip hop, chances are you're interested in checking out Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, which has finally seen the light of day.
But while my first spin has shown a lot of quality on Good Kid (not really a surprise), I've been bumping one of the bonus cuts for the last half hour.
Kendrick has called in his Black Hippy Crew cohorts Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul to rock over early single 'Swimming Pools', with all the crew putting in the sort of performance that's made them the stars they are.
If you're in the States and looking to pick up a physical copy of Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, head to Target where this tune features be a tasty little bonus cut.

Oh, while you're at it, check out another Kendrick bonus floating around, 'The Heart Pt. 3' with Ab and Jay on the help out:
Kendrick Lamar in New Zealand:
But wait, there's more!
I don't know what's in the water in New Zealand right now, but whatever it is, it seems to be making promoters put their money on the line to bring down some of the biggest names in hip hop right now.
Like a lot of smaller markets, Nu Zulla has been a stop on the hip hop seniors tour for quite a while, but with shows from Smoke DZA, Action Bronson and now Kendrick Lamar on the horizon, that seems to be changing.
Kendrick touches down in Auckland for one show on 12 December at the Power Station in Auckland. Tickets on sale tomorrow. If you're in the area put your money where your mouth is and support the gigs so we get more. Go on.
