I saw Kendrick tweet about this record about a week ago when he had only played it during one of his sets at SXSW. I didn’t hear the record then, but I immediately went to Buddy’s YouTube page to check him out. I saw a video called “Awesome Awesome” which is pretty fucking dope. You can check that video out below. From there, I kind of wanted to hear this “Staircases” record featuring Kendrick & produced by Pharrell, but I didn’t want to hear a low quality video recording of it. But yesterday, the full CDQ surfaced and this song is pretty good. Off of Buddy’s, Pharrells protege, upcoming Idle Time project.
