Kendrick Lamar recruited funk soul legend George Clinton on his To Pimp A Butterfly album earlier this year (on the track Wesley's Theory), and now Kendrick has repayed the favor and jumped on one of George Clinton's tracks.
Kendrick has added his signature sound to George Clinton's song ‘Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You?’ which has received an upbeat twist to the instrumental. Kendrick chimes in on the chorus and lays down an impressive verse for an exciting blend of hip-hop and funk music. Listen below and enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar was the last musical guest on The Colbert Report with a memorable performance of an untitled song that he has no intentions of delivering an official release. Last night he fittingly returned to television with Stephen Colbert once again, this time on his new show "Late Show With Stephen Colbert" for a epic, 6.5 minute performance splicing together songs from his most recent To Pimp a Butterfly album. He starts off “Wesley’s Theory,” and transitions through parts of “Momma” and “u” while spending most of the time on his hit “King Kunta."
His stage presence is at an all time high as he electrifies with his ability to deliver an inciting live rendition of his tracks. in a different manor than they sound on the record. Kendrick further solidifies himself as a generational icon with this live adaptation of his critically acclaimed album as he always keeps us on our toes. Kdot is joined by Thundercat, Anna Wise, Bilal and other members of the production team behind TPAB for a unique performance touching on the highlights off his album. This is the type of performance that will give you chills and will remind you why Kendrick is a cut above the pack, and one of the realest people in the music world. Enjoy!
TDE’s next release is scheduled to be Jay Rock’s 90059, which has a moving release date based off preorder goals. Originally the album popped up as an iTunes preorder with a August 2016 date, and later it was revealed the album’s release date will move up when specific preorder goals are reached with the current date being December 4th.
This new track “Easy Bake” brings a different sounding voice than Jay Rock has previously shown, and it seems as if it might be an unfinished version of the unique track, as the iTunes preorder version lists a feature by SZA, who doesn’t appear here. Rock is joined by label mate Kendrick Lamar with one of his always impressive features kicked off with alien-sounding vocal effects, until he snaps and the two start flawlessly trading bars. Other features on the album include label mates Schoolboy Q, Isaiah Rashad, SZA, along with a Busta Rhymes feature, and a long awaited Black Hippy track, which is the collaborative efforts of Kendrick, Schoolboy, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul. Stay tuned for the album and enjoy a stream of this track.
