SHAKE UPDATE: Turns out this is just Scoe and Kendrick’s Jake One-produced “Thank You” with a different beat.
Scoe, the younger brother of West Coast Gawd Kurupt, gifts the world a new single featuring Kendrick Lamar and Kobe Honeycutt.
According to Scoe, the song was originally over different production than the one Fallen Angel and Jesus blessed the LA-by-way-of-Philly emcee and Kendrick with, but I’d say this relaxed, church-organ-led joint worked out pretty well. With a hook added from Kobe, Scoe and Kendrick reminisce on the actions and visuals of their upbringing. If I had to guess, Kendrick’s verse sounds like it was recorded a couple years ago based on the tone of his voice and subject matter. It follows similar themes of the Section.80/good kid, m.a.a.d. city era in remembering his parents house parties with Dr. Dre and NWA playing throughout the night.
“Back In The Day” is a nice ode to growing up in addition to the music that influenced Scoe, Kendrick and the West Coast youth in the ’90s. Listen below.
