A Kendrick Lamar, J Cole album has created a lot of stir in the music world due to the multi-dimensional news that have been coming. A latest report by Pitchfork.com suggests that Kendrick wanted Prince in the album.Advertisement
Last year, Kendrick mentioned in an interview that he spent time with Prince in the studio. This time, he has revealed what they were doing together. The Kendrick Lamar, J Cole album could’ve had Prince singing “To pimp a butterfly,” but it did not happen.
Lamar confirmed the news saying, “That’s true. Prince heard the record, loved the record and the concept of the record got us to talking. We got to a point where we were just talking in the studio and the more time that passed we realized we weren’t recording anything. We just ran out of time, it’s as simple as that.”
Kendrick Lamar performed for Prince last year. He performed “What’s my name” upon Prince’s request. However, the album will not have Prince in it. While there is speculation about the release date following the “Black Friday” song they released last year, nothing is confirmed.
Kendrick Lamar’s sister posted on Facebook earlier, “Go checkout my brother @kendricklamar gift to you guys its definitely some [fire emoji] as usual! But go listen to it you won’t regret it I promise! Collab drop #Feb16 so be on the look out as well and also if you hadn’t noticed I did a very small part at the end, you have to start someone right.”
Kendrick stated, “I like all energies of music. It’s just the balance; we just gotta make sure we have that balance. And it’s up to me to bring that. It’s up to Cole — and I know where he come from — to bring that and keep that balance in there.”
