Attendee’s at South By Southwest, and later anyone with an internet connection, were in for quite the musical surprise when Young Guru previewed a sample of the “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix),” which boasts appearances from both Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z.
While at the coveted music festival, Kendrick chopped it up with MTV News and spoke briefly on how much of an accomplishment his collab with Jay-Z is.
“It’s just one of them things, you know, you live up to. One of those moments to really challenge yourself and say, ‘Okay, that’s how I come in.’ I always looked up to the greats to be a great,” said Kendrick. “So to actually be on a track with him it’s an accomplishment.”
Although the TDE rapper graced many a stage at South By Southwest, he revealed that it’s pretty enjoyable being able to take in various genres of music at one festival.
“South By Southwest, a lot of great shows. A few of my homies performing. That’s the best thing, just getting to see people that I actually like go out here and rock,” Kendrick explained. “I think that’s the beautiful thing about South By you know, music moves people, so there’s really no boundaries to what you might run into. You might run into some indie rock, you might run into some rock, you might run into some Hip Hop, some jazz, blues, R&B, whatever.”
Kendrick didn’t touch on when the full version of “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix)” will be released, but did reveal that his next musical release would be “Kill My Vibe.”
