Kendrick Lamar Wanted Nas On “Sing About Me”

blame it on Shake March 22, 2013

After landing a Hov verse for the “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (rmx)“, Kendrick Lamar revealed to VIBE that he originally planned to have Nas on “Sing About Me”.

I never really got a chance to reach out to him. I was so wrapped up in getting the music done, samples cleared and mastered – there was so much going on. I didn’t really wanna rush the process. I actually wanted to sit in the studio and vibe with him. [It was] the only thing that I had a vision for but in due time, God willing, for sure.

I just wanted to play him the record. Whatever inspiration he drew from it, I’d just have him there and he would go. He’s a genius. The record is self-explanatory but he may hear something a little different that might take it to the next level. That’s what makes a great feature for me – somebody that could take the song to the next level from where it was at. He would have did just that. It’s a great record now but to have his expertise on it would have been crazy.

Remix? Or a whole other collaboration? Let’s hope so…
