At last, Kendrick rapping 'Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe' over 'Forgot About Dre'
A highlight from this new mixtape sees Lamar spitting ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe’ over ‘Forgot About Dre’. Listen below.
Lamar and Dre have collaborated numerous times in the past, with Dre serving as executive producer for all of Kendrick’s studio albums since 2012’s ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’.
In 2015, Lamar discussed first meeting his mentor. “I had to really snap out of fan mode and become a professional,” Kendrick told Annie Mac.
He continued: “After we were introduced, he said he liked my music and I said that I’m a fan of his work. Then he said, ‘Okay, now write to this, write a full song to this’. Right after I said ‘Man, Dr. Dre, you’re the greatest’ and he was like, ‘Yeah man, you’re good too, you could be something… alright now write to this beat’.”
Rivera had previously claimed hip-hop had “done more damage to young African-Americans than racism”. He was later referenced on Lamar’s ‘DAMN.’ track ‘YAH.’
