(Let’s hope this one gets an official official release soon)
So, in a move that makes so much sense, Future got Kendrick Lamar to record a verse for the “Mask Off” remix. There shouldn’t be much else to say on this, but there is. The man boasts his conscious rap vibes over a trap beat (which shouldn’t be a surprise, considering DAMN. had a decent supply of trap beats anyways) while transcending the space between “just a remix” and “ownership” and delivers a flawless victory of a track.
In saying that Prince lives through him, Kendrick is staking claims at all genres (just as The Purple One did in his career). And, we’ve seen this through the multiple collaborations that Kendrick’s dropped over his career, from Taylor Swift to Drake to Future. The man knows no bounds to his power, just like a certain purple rain-crafting genius.
Possible fanboying aside, his lyrics mesh well with the production and offer a yin to Future’s promethazine-fueled yang. Check it out below.
