Flying Lotus Shares Unreleased Kendrick Lamar Collaboration, "Eyes Above"

Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar work well together.

First there was a Lamar-assisted single, "Never Catch Me," and then FlyLo's "Wesley's Theory" on "future classic" (his words, not ours) To Pimp A Butterfly.

On Thursday evening, we were reminded once again of their musical marriage as K. Dot was a special guest on Lotus' BBC Radio 1's Residency. Following an interview, during which the pair discussed the hip-hop climate in 2015 and advice that up-and-coming artists should consider, listeners were treated to a full, unreleased Kendrick verse that was not included on the album version of "Eyes Above."

The extended verse is undeniably dynamic, powerful and rewind-worthy. Upon hearing Kendrick's final words, "it ain't the final score," listeners will be gasping for air and looking for a source of hydration. Remember to breathe.

For those who are unfamiliar with the work that Flying Lotus has been creating, take a jourmey with Yoh through his recent visual mastery.
