Donwill – Buy Kendrick Lamar’s O.D.

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Tanya Morgan member Donwill writes about his first listen to Kendrick Lamar’s O(verly) D(edicated) in his latest blog post and how he ended up finishing the song “Heaven & Hell” which cuts off.

The homie Datwon Thomas didn’t tell me to listen to Kendrick Lamar. He literally commanded me to. Told me that I’d love it and to set any criticism I’m seeing online about his voice* aside. I think I got his shit that night and played it like three times in a row. It’s one of my default lps now. You know the kind you throw on when you don’t know what else to throw on aside from what genre you want to hear?

The song I linked is not a dedication to Kendrick’s album. Its me adding a verse to the end of the a song off of the album. The song is named Heaven or Hell and I swear one day I had this shit on repeat for like 30 minutes. So long that when I finally cut it off I just kinda started writing a verse to fill in the blank at the end. This was purely for personal consumption mind you but I figured what the hell, I may as well share it since I haven’t put out any music in a while.

Exactly the same reaction I had to this project.

What if Haiti’s quakes, floods and flocks of birds fallin’
Was Mother Earth collapsin’, cryin’, sobbin’, weepin’, bawlin’
