Watch Flying Lotus preview Kendrick Lamar’s unreleased verse on “Eyes Above”
After collaborating on “Never Catch Me”, Flying Lotus reveals another collaboration with Kendrick Lamar which was supposed to appear on the “Eyes Above” track. The verse was removed due to “political reasons” and didn’t appear on his You’re Dead album.
UPDATE: CDQ version of Kendrick’s verse added below.
“There’s actually another track that he did on this album that I had to take off for political reasons, but it was a really cool thing. He came to the house and laid it down and killed it. He didn’t come with no entourage or nothing. It was real special to me.”
“I appreciate that space when I can sit with the artist and really see how their genius works, and Kendrick is that guy. He’s a visionary thinker. Every time he raps on a song, he raps like I wish I could.” –PF
