Kendrick Lamar & Dr. Dre Discuss "The Recipe," Reveal Scrapped Song Title
Earlier this morning, Kendrick Lamar and Dr. Dre spoke with Power 106 LA’s Big Boy to discuss the new single “The Recipe.”
Before debuting the track, K. Dot and Dre revealed that the previous title for the song was “Women, Weed & Weather,” inspired by the three necessities of a West Coast lifestyle.
“Old title was ‘Women, Weed & Weather,” said Dre, who called in to the show. “That’s the three things you need in life. ‘The Recipe’ is when you mix it all up,” added Kendrick.
The cut, produced by Scoop Deville, features Dre on first verse duties before Kendrick steps in and finishes up. Dre admits that Kendrick wrote the lyrics for the song, and that “they fell in love with it” once they recorded it in the studio.
“This track was done by a guy named Scoop Deville, and we just went into the studio and added our elements to it. I mixed it up. Kendrick wrote the words. It came together and we fell in love with it,” said Dre.
The song is expected to appear on Kendrick’s upcoming Aftermath/Interscope/TDE debut, Good Kid in a Mad City.
