It’s a likely collaboration as Clinton appeared on Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, giving the young rapper some funky advice on the opening track Wesley’s Theory. This time Kendrick jumps on the P-Funk’s crew’s jam, with a few heavy lyrics of his own.

“See a nine to five was so jive turkey,” Kendrick raps, “But when Thanksgiving came that check didn’t hurt me / You plead the fifth, I read the fifth amendment/We both criminals with bad intention / They say time heals all, but if I could short cut my success mother funk all y’all”
