Flying Lotus Interviews Kendrick Lamar; Plays Full Version Of “Eyes Above”

blame it on Shake April 9, 2015

After sharing contributions on both their albums (FlyLo on “Wesley’s Theory” x Kendrick on “Never Catch Me“), Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar recently got together for an exclusive interview.

As FlyLo fans should know, the talented producer has been hosting a monthly show on BBC Radio 1 as part of their Residency series, and tonight’s episode might be the best yet. Pieced together like K.Dot and Pac’s convo on “Mortal Man” off To Pimp A Butterfly, the back-and-forth finds Lotus and Lamar speaking on the album, the current state of hip hop, following your heart and more.

The real fun begins at about the 1:43:00 mark though, when Flying Lotus decided to unleash the official version of “Eyes Above” with Kendrick Lamar’s full verse!

Take a listen to a rip below and head to BBC to catch the interview.

I don’t know about y’all, but this only amplifies the hype I’ve built inside my head after hearing Kendrick raided FlyLo for all his beats back in August of last year.
