Kendrick Lamar Says He Couldn’t Be ‘No Floozy’ On Jay-Z Remix
Funkmaster Flex wasn’t the only one to drop bombs Monday (Mar. 18). Hours after Kendrick Lamar debuted the full version of his “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix)” featuring Jay-Z, the ‘net was in a frenzy.
The man of the day dialed in to Hot 97.1 to discuss how he prepped his verses for the track. “You really can’t prepare,” K-Dot told Flex, revealing that the collabo came about through mutual business partners. “Jay-Z just came in and humbled the whole record.”
Lamar also said the record was a dream fulfilled. “I always looked up to Jay, being a young boy in the business,” he said. “For him to acknowledge my talents and get on a record, that’s an honor. That’s one of my moments.”
Still, the pressure was on for the Compton kid to get his bars up. “When I heard that thing he sent it back, I said to myself, I can’t be no floozy on this motherfucker.”
“All them years of being in the studio, all them years of writing, all them years of free-styling and just being a student of the game,” he continued, “that all don’t mean shit if I can’t live up to this track.”
