 Kendrick Lamar Planned To Feature Nas On “Sing About Me”

Kendrick Lamar had very few rap features, obvious standouts being Drake, MC Eiht, Jay Rock and Dr. Dre but other than that K. Dot kept it fairly slight on guest appearances for his certified gold debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city. Apparently, Kendrick Lamar had planned to recruit Nas for the 12 minute storytelling track “Sing About Me, Dying of Thirst”.

“The idea was to have Nas on ‘Sing About Me,’. I never really got a chance to reach out to him, I was so wrapped up in getting the music done, samples cleared and mastered – there was so much going on. I didn’t really wanna rush the process. I actually wanted to sit in the studio and vibe with him. [It was] the only thing that I had a vision for but in due time, God willing, for sure. I just wanted to play him the record. Whatever inspiration he drew from it, I’d just have him there and he would go. “He’s a genius. The record is self-explanatory but he may hear something a little different that might take it to the next level. That’s what makes a great feature for me – somebody that could take the song to the next level from where it was at. He would have did just that,. “t’s a great record now but to have his expertise on it would have been crazy.”

Dont see how he can top such a great track. Almost untouchable but I wouldn't mind hearing Nas on it because he has the potential to make it a better overall song.

Glad he left nas off. It seem like a track nas would lay a off topic verse on which would make the whole song lame.

Im a nas fan

Nas would have murdered something like that. He's been getting more and more personal lately.

Big Nas fan, but he has no business on that song because the nature of that song should remain personal to Kendrick and his story. However on the flip he could have come in as one of the characters and added a different dimension. Still sure they will have future opportunity.
