Bump West Coast Wu-Tang, the latest cut from Kendrick Lamar featuring Ab-Soul & Punch on the assist. It was released on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013.

This past Saturday, on February 15th, marked fifteen years since Big L's death, when he was shot nine times in his native Harlem. The unfortunate death of L saw a talented, lyrical MC of legendary status leave us before his prime.
