Listen to an unreleased collab from Q-Tip & Kendrick Lamar called “Want u 2 Want.”
Kendrick Lamar has been treating fans to a lot of new music recently by way of the new Black Panther soundtrack, which Kendrick served as executive producer on. The 14-song soundtrack, which dropped Friday, features 5 new songs with the TDE rapper, along with other guest appearances from Travis Scott, The Weeknd, Future, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q, Khalid, Swae Lee, & more. However, while fans are preoccupied listening to that, and they should be, Q-Tip decided to surprise fans late Friday night by premiering another never-before-heard record from Kendrick Lamar on his Beats 1 Radio show called “Want U 2 Want.”
But before Q-Tip hit play, the Tribe Called Quest rapper informed listeners that the song isn’t entirely new, so it’s presumed it was recorded a couple years ago, but he didn’t say when. It’s also unknown if the record will ever see the light of day officially, or even if it’s meant to, but it’s definitely a nice added bonus to all the Kendrick we’ve been receiving from the Black Panther soundtrack today.
If you missed it, fans can listen to the song right around the 1 hour 42 minute mark right here on Apple Beats 1 radio.
Update: Thanks to the internet, the song has now surfaced online, which you can listen to by itself (below) while it’s still live.
