Kendrick Lamar Song Name Dropped In Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial
A Kendrick Lamar song may have possibly been involved in a murder case this week. The KDot record “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” was cited during the trial of Oscar Pistorius, an Olympic athlete who was accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp last February, the Associated Press reports.
The prosecutor asked Pistorius if the song was the cause of an argument between him and his now deceased girlfriend. A WhatsApp message was used as evidence where Pistorius’ former girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, mentioned the song.
In the message, Steenkamp said, “I’m scared of you sometimes and how u snap at me and how of you will react to me. You make me happy 90% of the time and I think we are amazing together but I am not some other bitch you may know trying to kill your vibe.”
Pistorius then responded, “I was upset that you just left me after we got food to go talk to a guy and I was standing right behind you watching you touch his arm and ignore me. And when I spoke up you introduced me which you could’ve done but when I left you just kept on chatting to him when clearly I was upset. I asked Martin to put on that Kendrick Lamar album in the car and don’t know it… Granted that it was a shit song but you should’ve just lent forward and whispered in my ear to change it seeing as I had to drive to pick up your friend.”
Pistorius couldn’t remember the name of the specific song. The trial is still underway.
