This isn’t a “random” collaboration. Kanin is an upcoming rapper from Compton with whom Kendrick started his journey to Rap. The two used to rap together as early as 7th grade, as per K.Dot’s confession in his interview with Nardwuar (watch at 9:48 mark after the jump).
The two homies connect on a new song called ‘Winner Circle’ which is lifted off Kanin’s latest mixtape Old School New Sense that released a week ago but slipped under our radar. Enjoy the song below.
