SZA – Babylon feat Kendrick Lamar

TDE’s resident songstress SZA’s album “Z” has leaked and the one of the highlights is the track “Babylon” which features Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick, fresh off a string of angry verses sounding as though he had stubbed his toe on a coffee table, tones it down a few notches and brings his indoor voice (which is definitely a good thing as it would have been a stark contrast to SZA’s chilled out vocals). Not to say that I don’t like the “angry Kendrick” every now and again, but it’s nice to hear him back with his signature flow. It should also be noted that it’s only April and this is already Top Dawg’s THIRD release, joining Isaiah Rashad’s “Cilvia Demo” and ScHoolboy Q’s “Oxymoron”. It’s been rumored that there are solo album’s coming in 2014 from Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Kendrick’s highly anticipated follow up to his Grammy nominated sophomore effort “Good Kid m.A.A.d. City”. I want to believe.
