Recently, we spoke on the prospect of Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar finally getting in the kitchen together, with music between the two expected to appear on FlyLo’s upcoming album, You’re Dead! On Tuesday night, L.A. Leakers received the go-ahead to premiere the collaboration between the two entitled “Never Catch Me.”
While FlyLo indicated in a recent interview that the two Californians had been working together, actual substance between the two musical geniuses seemed speculative, despite confirmation from the source. I guess hearing really is believing as the two artists channel their distinctive but oddly relatable sounds on “Never Catch Me” to make a lyrically engaging and sonically resonating piece that will leave you needing to hit play at least a few more times to really grasp what just hit you.
The producer’s You’re Dead! LP releases on October 7th.
UPDATE: CDQ sans tags and other forms of noise added.
