"The Recipe," originally titled "Women, Weed & Weather," is an ode to the essentials of West Coast living. "When you discuss your love for lust/ Just make sure you visit here first/ Cali," Kendrick Lamar rhymes on "Recipe."
"Old title was 'Women, Weed & Weather,' Dre told Big Boy. 'That's the three things you need in life. 'The Recipe' is when you mix it all up,' Lamar chimed in.
The feel-good cut, produced by Scoop DeVille ( Snoop Dogg, Game, 50 Cent), will reportedlyl be featured on K.Dot's upcoming Aftermath/Interscope/ Top Dawg Entertainment debut album.
"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," Dre said.
