Kendrick Lamar Discusses Working With Jay-Z And Future Collaborations
In a recent interview with Get Schooled, Kendrick Lamar opened up about collaborating with Jay-Z on the remix of the fan favourite 'B***h Don't Kill My Vibe'. The Black Hippy emcee revealed that he felt a sense of accomplishment when he got Jay-Z's verse for the track…
"It was one of them feelings where, you know, you finally reached that moment to where you're actually respected," Lamar said.
"Jay-Z don't have to [be on] nobody's track, so for him to actually hop on a record of mine just shows the level of respect he has for me as an artist. You have all the money in the world and the awards, and accolades and stuff, you always want that respect. For him to do that, it's just one of them things.
“I felt like, 'OK, I finally accomplished what I sought out to do the moment I turned 13, and that's be respected by people I respect.”
Kendrick does not want to stop at Jay-Z either; the rapper also shared which other artists he’d love to collaborate with.
"An artist that I want to work with now; I would say it's Erykah Badu and Sade. I haven't got a record with Snoop [Dogg] yet. That's kind of crazy. I really want to lock in with Snoop."
