In hilarious news, Kendrick Lamar has called good friend and Black Hippy running mate Jay Rock while the latter was live on American radio station Power 106 today, pretending to be a smitten female fan and asking for his number.
He does an er… convincing job and the Shyamalan twist moment of realisation for Jay Rock is particularly side splitting. Kendrick later went on to give huge props to Jay Rock on the release of his new album 90059. Have a listen here:
Great to hear a couple of good friends having a laugh like that. Also great to hear Kendrick in full support of his friend’s new album, released just last week to some great reviews.
The album features Kendrick on the track Easy Bake with SZA as well as on the track Vice City, which is the first time all four members of Black Hippy (ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul round out the group) have performed a track together since 2012. It’s suitably fantastic and, as always with anything these four dudes collaborate on in any combination, leaves us longing for the Avengers-style team up we’ve been waiting for an eternity.
These dudes need their own sitcom. Fingers crossed Jay Rock is already planning his cold revenge for this dastardly act of hoodwink-ery. We’ll keep you posted.
