BJ the Chicago Kid- "His Pain" ft. Kendrick Lamar

New Musicadmin1 Comment

A track from the forthcoming BJ the Chicago Kid release, Pineapple Now-Laters, which is coming out on Valentine's Day.

Damn, all I gotta say is this track is gorgeous from every angle. Kendrick Lamar's storytelling is vivid, dealing in one moral dilemma after another. His vocal delivery is cracking as if this angry, violent character he's playing is lost in a state of emotional confusion.

The beat samples some soulful piano and sax, and BJ the Chicago Kid's smooth R&B vocals clean up everything really well toward the end of the track. I loved hearing this guy on Kendrick's latest album, Section.80, but I can't help but feel like this track came together into something that's even better.
