Flying Lotus On Kendrick Lamar: “He Took All My Beats!”

blame it on Shake August 19, 2014

When news broke that Kendrick Lamar would be featured on Los Angeles-based producer Flying Lotus’ upcoming album, You’re Dead, the internet went into a light frenzy. Just the thought of K. Dot rocking over the abstract sounds of FlyLo is enough to get excited about, but there’s more…

During an interview with Pitchfork, Flying Lotus revealed that Kendrick had a second feature on the LP that was removed for “political reasons” and that he also recorded over 10+ other beats (mainly ones set aside for Captain Murphy)!

“We’ve been working on stuff together. I went on tour and he recorded to a bunch of my songs. I don’t know if he’s gonna use them or not, but he recorded a bunch of stuff, which is why there’s no Captain Murphy album out yet. He took all my beats!”

But, where are these tracks gonna end up?

“At this point, I don’t even know! But he took, like, 12, 13 of my tracks, man. I think he recorded all of them, too. I just don’t know if they’re ever gonna see the light of day.”
