Kendrick Lamar Kills His Verse on Future’s ‘Mask Off’ Remix [LISTEN]
Future's "Mask Off" has gotten the unofficial remix treatment from a slew of artists over the past few months since the song has gone platinum and become a party anthem, but we're finally getting the official remix. Kendrick Lamar was recruited by the "March Madness" rapper to hop on the remix to the hit record, where he spits another signature mean verse.
Opting out of his hardcore vocals, similar to how he rapped on his "Control" verse, the DAMN. rapper gives us a sing-song verse, which hears him harmonically blending in with the famous flutes that triggered the #MaskOffChallenge on social media to go viral. From speaking on his stroke game, to name-dropping Prince and his tragic death from last year, K. Dot taps into his thought-provoking element for the adventurous verse.
"Platinum, platinum, platinum/Gotta look at self and ask what happenedHow y'all let a conscious n---- go commercialWhile only makin' conscious albums?How y'all let the braids on TV?How y'all let the hood at the table?/Now y'all don't even know how to rate him/N---as lookin' like I'm a create-a-player/Everybody who didn't pay respect/Gotta 'fess up now and pay your debt," Kendrick spits.
This is gearing up to be a huge year for both Future and Kendrick at the moment. The two have not only earned themselves platinum albums in 2017, but they're also on the road for their separate tours. Future is on the road for his Nobody's Safe Tour with Migos, Young Thug, A$AP Ferg and Tory Lanez, while Kendrick is about to go national for his DAMN. Tour with Travi$ Scott and D.R.A.M.
