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.”
