New music from ZZ Ward titled “Cryin Wolf” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
I thought this was the first time I ever rocked with anything from ZZ Ward but I have heard her elsewhere but didn’t really take notice. She had a track with Freddie Gibbs on her last EP and she also did a record with Asher Roth on his Pabst & Jazz mixtape, so she’s very Hip-Hop affiliated.
Her style is a cross between Country-Blues pleasantly blended with acoustic elements. The result is something slightly similar to Adelle’s sound.
When I first heard the beat I wondered how Kendrick would tackle it, but then beat hits a climax and sets the perfect tone for Hii Power to come in and kill, and he does.
“Cryin Wolf” is from ZZ Ward’s debut album Til The Casket Drops, drops October 16, 2012.
