After listening to Kendrick Lamar‘s DAMN album, you may have noticed it played out like an old school mixtape, mostly because Kid Capri was yelling in the background of some songs. As much of a surprise as it was, his appearance on the K Dot effort has been months in the making and apparently, there’s more where that came from.
In a talk with Mass Appeal, the legendary DJ spoke on some of the things the two talked about, inspiring Kendrick with spiritual quotes and how their collaboration came together in the first place:
On being featured on DAMN
[TDE] reached out to me, and asked me if I could come meet up with Kendrick. So we sat down and we figured it out. I came to the studio and recorded a lot of stuff, they took what they wanted, placed it where they needed to place it. I think they’ve got some more stuff—there are some more things—coming out later, but for right now, that’s what happened.
I didn’t even hear the album, I didn’t want to hear anything until it was done. So when I heard it last night, that was my first time just like it was yours. And my phone hasn’t stopped ringing yet, man, it’s crazy.
On more music still in the stash
Yes, absolutely. There’s a gang of stuff that hasn’t been used yet. That’s why I said I think he’s doing something later on, or he might be doing something for his show, but there’s a lot of stuff that I put out there.
