So y’all know I am an R&B head to the death, but I am going up for this new song, Poetic Justice by Kendrick Lamar featuring Drake. I don’t even know who Kendrick Lamar is or where he comes from, but I will be doing my homework on him. What’s so hot about this song is that it is called Poetic Justice but set to Janet Jackson’s 1994 hit Anytime Anyplace. This track is a smooth rap groove about the a “special lady” in the Compton and Canadian rapper’s lives. Check it out.

Kendrick’s Bio Courtesy Itunes:
Compton, California’s Kendrick Lamar initially rapped as K. Dot and released a series of mixtapes under that name. Youngest Head N***a in Charge (2003), Training Day (2005), and C4 (2009) preceded his decision to go by his birth name. Overly Dedicated, released in 2010, was the first Kendrick Lamar mixtape and fared well enough to enter Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart that October. Lamar’s first official album was released the following year; Section.80, issued on Top Dawg Entertainment, entered the Billboard 200 at number 113. From 2009 through 2011, he appeared on tracks by Big Pooh, Jay Rock, Tech N9ne, and Game.
