The Compton rapper debuts another new version of his hit after the first official remix he did with Jay-Z.
Hip-hop recording artist Kendrick Lamar comes up yet again with another new version of his "good kid, m.A.A.d city" album track "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe". After the first official remix he did with Roc Nation mogul Jay-Z, the 25-year-old rap superstar collaborates anew with British-born Scottish singer Emeli Sande for a second remix.
Sande adds more depth and dimension to the track by opening the remix with a soulful intro, "You don't know what pain is / You just f*ck with famous / I don't know you, I can tell your energy is dangerous / You don't know how long it took to finally come alive / So b***h, don't kill my vibe." The pop/R'n'B diva brings some adult contemporary vibe to the MTV Hottest MC's rap track, who kicks off his verse with the catchy hook.
The two artists first performed the remix live during the Footaction's "Own the Stage" event in New York City earlier this month. Prior to that team-up, Lamar assisted Sande on another remix, that of her "Our Version of Events" album track "Next to Me" which was released just a couple of months ago.
Meanwhile, on upcoming live performances, Lamar is set to share the stage with Grammy Award-winning rapper Eminem when they play the Glasgow Summer Session in Bellahouston Park on August 20. The two will next perform at the Stade de France on August 22, with Earlwolf and Slaughterhouse.
