MOMENTS | Mash-up: Kendrick Lamar x Kanye West “All Day” Remix
We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.
It’s here! After hearing last week’s appallingly short, 6-second clip of Kendrick Lamar rapping over Kanye West’s “All Day,” we’ve been gifted with the full remix. Production-wise, there haven’t really been many changes to the Kanye track: K. Dot replaced the Theophilus London verse, Kanye’s intense end of song meltdown was cut, but Allan Kingdom’s dancehall contributions have remained. Of course, the only kicker the track needed was the Compton rapper’s killer lyrical gifts, spitting lines like, “Ask me how long do it take to be the greatest / I’m the Broadway hoe, swish it, swish it / Damn Kanye never will I be safe, bitch I already know.”
There hasn’t been any word on whether or not the remix will be part of Kanye’s upcoming album So Help Me God. We’re mostly just stoked to hear some new Kendrick, especially right on the heels of To Pimp A Butterfly’s release. Kendrick put together his latest album from events he experienced while on tour with Yeezy in 2014. The rapper explained, “I’m feeling all these things while I’m on tour,” he said of personal difficulties he dealt with, and outlined on songs like ‘u.’ “I gotta get off stage and almost face the madness and get all these calls. It’s real man, three of my homeboys — that summer time — was murdered.”
