It’s out! Jhené Aiko‘s Sail Out EP drops today and one of our favorite tracks on the project has to be her Kendrick Lamar collaboration. The track is very sexy thanks to the beautiful vocals of Jhené, with a touch of hip hop. The last time Kendrick and Jhené hooked up was for “Growing Apart” back in 2010, their new Fisticuffs-produced track, “Stay Ready” is a lot more smoother. Which do you like best?
“Control” is a game changer for TDE rapper Kendrick Lamar. Now more than ever before, Kendrick has the biggest names in the industry talking about him including Eminem!

He didn’t say anything that every MC was thinking.” It’s safe to say Eminem admires Kendrick for his hard work! We’re hoping “Love Game” won’t be their last collab. We have more on what Eminem had to say below!
