With YG’s début album ‘My Krazy Life’ about to drop this week, the up-and-coming rapper released this track with fellow Compton MC, Kendrick Lamar entitled Really Be (Smokin’ N Drinkin’). The track has a distinctive west coast vibe and is produced by Taylor Gang’s own Ty Dolla $ign. YG goes in straight from the top with his hypnotic rhymes about getting intoxicated to forget about life’s hard times, over the top of a bubbling bass line and looped exhales. The hook is nothing special and could have done with some of Kendrick’s magic touch. K.Dot is considered one of the hottest MC’s in the game right now and his raspy and relentless verse does nothing to dampen that view. Kendrick regularly outshines anyone he’s on a track with and this is no different, I’m not saying YG did anything wrong but nobody can step up to Kendrick when he’s in full flow. A great track that deserves more than one listen.
