Fresh off his collabo with Best Coast, Compton MC Kendrick Lamar has unveiled “Swimming Pools (Drank)”, the latest track from his forthcoming debut studio album, good kid m.A.A.d city. Produced by T-Minus, the cut’s clattery drum beats and echo-y effects make for a sinister soundscape that Lamar uses to enhance rhymes about his family’s struggles with alcoholism and the deceptive strength of the bottle. Stream it below.

good kid m.A.A.d city hits stores on October 2nd via Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope Records. In case you missed them, be sure to check out “Cartoon & Cereal” and the LP’s lead single, “The Recipe”.
