New Music: Kendrick Lamar x Dr. Dre “The Recipe”

LA’s Power 106 premiered the new single from Kendrick Lamar featuring Dr. Dre. It’s produced By Scoop DeVille and was originally titled, “Women, Weed and Weather”.

The chorus and beat compliment each other, but their verses are pretty second rate. But whenever the Doc’s on your side, that’s a recipe for success. Check it out below. Buy it on iTunes.

Interview:

Break 1

Break 2

UPDATE: Video after the cut.

  • bluengold85

    To quote Dirk Nowitzki…..

    SHUT IT DOWN!!!!!

  • Jackal

    woman weed and weather part is catchy but still a meh song to me.
    Overhyped ass song

  • http://www.twitter.com/Mykewayne Myke wayne

    much better than I expected. Good shit

  • Yessir

    I dig it I just wish Dre didn’t have the artist whose record he’s featuring on ghostwrite the verse. He needs to have someone ghostwrite in a Dr Dre style instead of matching the exact flow of the artist he’s rhyming with. And produce the record. What are you even doing if you don’t write or produce? Still a good record, Kendrick is a great artist.

    Nuthing like Dre day when you wake up in the morning.

    Like the early day’s i just want to pull out the drum machine in the AM.

    “I ride when you look outside it’s a beautiful day to ride with dre. 24/7″

  • http://iam607.bandcamp.com/ adrian

    this is super cool. a ‘washin the car on saturday morning’ kinda vibe. if they make a good video it’ll be even harder. sidenote: it’s crazy how dre voice keeps changing over the years. i don’t mind it though

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/staticspot static

    dope track. sick beat and perfect rhyme scheme. dre make detox.

  • King

  • http://www.mrdanielknight.com MDK

    Sounds as though Kendrick wrote Dre’s verse.

  • Citylivin’

    i’m tired of hearing old niggas on tracks wit new niggas..

  • http://serisony.wordpress.com serisony

    Damn, most of the comments here and really most comments these days are so cynical, hateful and bitter. It’s music, enjoy it or don’t. To label anything that a couple human beings created with love, passion and skill as mediocre, or to try to tear it down and take away from the positive energy surrounding it just doesn’t make any sense to me. Also what is it with anyone who enjoys a particular artist that suddenly makes them a “Stan”? I think it’s only because you don’t like the artist that makes you think anyone who shows an artist some love is a stan. This track sounded good to me, though I’ll probably play it for a few of my friends and never listen to it again. Replay value for most songs these days is poor.

  • Drew Who

    people love to hate. fuck offf

  • Dr. Dre’s Ass

    maybe its too hard for Kendrick stans to swallow that his song with Dr. Dre was so mediocre

  • HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA

    , but their verses are pretty second rate.”

    second rate to, who?

    stfu B DOT

  • True

    Now I’m really convinced that B.Dot dislikes Kendrick. Y’all remember what he said about Cartoons and Cereal? I fucks with this on no dickriding shit, it’s not bad at all. Typical Kendrick.

  • Dr. Dre’s Ass

    Ain’t Nothing Wrong With This Song…

    Look Mommy Grandpa Dre Rapping.!!

  • BigAl

    great song, great hook, good beat. I second what Adrian says about Saturday morning vibe.

  • YOUNGSLAYA

    People calm down… It’s just a single for the radio…. Plus it doesn’t sound cliche like all the other bullshit you here on the radio or see in the videos

  • mac DIESEL

    @ HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA @ True

    YA’LL LEAVE B.DOT ALONE!!!! HIS OPINION COUNTS AND YOUR’S DON’T BECAUSE HE’S EMPLOYED BY A RAP WEBSITE AND HE WRITES ARTICLES IN RAP MAGAZINES!!!! HIS EARS ARE DIFFERENT FROM EVERYBODY ELSE!!!! SO HE KNOWS MUSIC AND WE DON’T!!!! THAT’S WHY HE CAN FORM AN OPINION ON MUSIC AND WE CAN’T!!!! HE HAS OPINIONS WE DON’T!!!! WE HATE!!!! WE’RE CONSIDERED HATERS IF WE DON’T LIKE A RECORD HE LIKES!!!! SO GO WORK AT A RAP WEBSITE AND WRITE RAP ARTICLES AND MAYBE THEN U CAN FORM AN OPINION ABOUT MUSIC!!!!

    ……HA!!!! RIGHT BRIAN??!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/thdinastia T.H

    Kendrick and Dre its bumpin in the trunk here in Brazil .. #fosho

  • http://livemusicgeek.wordpress.com livemusicgeek

    Like all of Kendrick’s music you gotta LISTEN a few times to get it. Welcome to LA 82 degrees got my top peeled…… off.

  • In Your Fucking Face

    If B.Dot Does Not Fuck With Kendrick So What? His Prerogative… Niggas Ask Yourself If You Fuck With It And Then STFU Son.

  • MVP

    Dre still goin in on shit lol.

    K Dot da gawd as usual.

    Legit song, the beat is cray.

  • Shuttaman

    nigga fuck a B.Dot
    Bitch dot nigga
    Kendrick>>>>>>>>

  • http://www.youtube.com/jhuntdaprodigy JHP

    This song was a little too boring from my taste, kind of mediocre. That is the problem with K. Dot’s music, it can be pretty boring at times, even though this nigga is a beast on the mic. Expected more from a Kendrick/Dre collaboration

  • Chi Town

    Kendrick Lamar x Dr. Dre
    Instant classic!!!

  • Protest

    I respect flow. If you can flow on a track in an original way, I can fuck with it. I wont listen to this again prolly cuz its some west coast/cali anthem kinda shit, but the flows on this are crazy, and the beat knocks.. It’s a great track

  • Word

    This shit is chills. Good music. So, whats the next Kendrick Lamar project tho? They said its a single but…for his major album? Or still a street album like Section80? Or is another mixtape coming?

  • IIG

    This shit goes super duper hard.

  • M.T

    Thats one of the problems these days with hot upcoming lyrical rappers. Niggas hype everything up sooo much and put these unrealistic expectations on the artist. Also this is a SINGLE so if u were expecting some life changing verses, this isnt the song for u.

    This song is dope and has a nice vibe. Im definitely checking for this album.

    my buddy’s step-mother brought in $18061 last week. she has been working on the laptop and got a $540500 home. All she did was get fortunate and work up the instructions leaked on this site NUTTYRICHdotcom

  • http://K1ngEljay.com k1ngeljay

    B. Dot’s musical taste is just different. Nothing wrong with that.

    That being said, I copped this off iTunes. Been banging the hell out of it.

    Pause.

    That is all.

  • ColoradoKnight

    This is the same B. Dot, who today, was cosigning Gunplay? SMh? What ever happened to non biased journalism? Ross Radar has not ONCE criticized a single MMG record. NOT ONCE?! This was a great record. May not be the club friendly, skinny jean wearing record that people want, but it’s Hip Hop at it’s finest. Ross Radar erks the ish out of me. Haven’t been visiting this as much because of it.

  • BrokeAsBillGates

    Beat and chorus is really good . Verses are average …

  • BrokeAsBillGates

    Ofcaurse , this is better than 90 % of MMG shit , 100 % of 2 chain shit , 100 % of Young Money and all other wack pop artists pretending to be rappers . skinny women jeans and your 7 year old daughter t-shirt ain’t HIP-HOP !!!

  • slicksick

    kendrick is all over dre’s verse! ghost-writing

  • http://villageslum.com mel d cole

    this is super sick! B. Dot is bugging re: the lyrics.

  • CK

    sick.

  • realtalk

    this is probably one of the most potent tracks so far this year. and probably the best dre appearance in a while.

  • the great zeee

    Groceries.

  • as

    Not sure why people dislike this. It’s a perfect song for a lazy summer day (which are coming up). Contrary to popular belief, not only Kendrick fans enjoy this as I’ve not listened to much of anything of his and enjoy this. Not to mention, I gave up on Detox a LOOOONG time ago.

    The production on this track is awesome, as well. Great summer song.

  • WUWEAR

    NOTHIN SPECIAL BUT WE COULD LISTEN TO DRE DESCRIBE THE LAST SHIT HE TOOK AND IT WOULD STILL BE MORE PLEASING TO THE EAR THAN ANY WHACK ASS NICKI MINAJ ALBUM

    I AM SERIOUS

  • flo

    if this song doesnt make you go crazy then somethings wrong with you.

    go somewhere else.
