That Kendrick Lamar is a proud Compton native is well-known, it being the titular "m.A.A.d city" of his breakthrough album. He also showed up on fellow Los Angeles resident YG's My Krazy Life. Now, he's appeared on the new single from yet another Californian, veteran Nipsey Hussle's "Dedication."

The song, premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, is so West Coast you can feel the heat rising from every whiny synth, while both Nipsey and K. Dot reflect on what it means to be dedicated to multiple pursuits. Listen to "Dedication" above and listen to Nipsey's interview with Lowe below about his album Victory Lap.
