Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future & James Blake Connect For Massive New Track ‘King’s Dead’


Woah. This is massive! If seeing Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future & James Blake together on a track wasn’t enough, ‘King’s Dead’ is produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and Teddy Walton. The track embodies a similar sound to Kendrick and Mike WiLL’s recent collabs (‘DNA,’ ‘Humble’) but with a new energy thanks to the stacked roster. Kendrick kicks things off with an in your face hook telling listeners “to miss him with the bullshit.” Jay Rock drops the first verse with a rapid-fire flow. Kendrick and Future go back and forth on the hook before Future comes through with his own verse which starts off strong and then gets very odd with a high-pitched flow (expect some memes of this flow). Most surprising is the brief appearance of James Blake who provides a beautiful bridge/intro into the second half which sees the beat switch up, somehow getting harder for King Kendrick to kill it and close it out perfectly. Given the quality and star power on this one, I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being one of the biggest records of 2018. Listen below.
