The Abstract previewed his “old” collaboration with K. Dot on his Beats 1 radio show.
Hours after TDE’s Black Panther: The Album, Kendrick Lamar appeared on another iconic collaboration that will stun his fan and the game overall. At the top of the weekend (Feb 9), ATCQ’s revered beatmaker rocked the airwaves on Beats 1 for a fresh episode of Abstract Radio. Over an hour into his show, Q-Tip blessed us with an amazing single featuring the Compton native called “Want U 2 Want.”
“New @kendricklamar ft. Q-Tip coming up! Not really new, but whatever. What up, Kung Fu? This is for you!” @QtipTheAbstract is dropping "Want U 2 Want" right now! LISTEN:https://t.co/Nt1JAq2tAr #ABSTRACTRADIO pic.twitter.com/NcDOAYfurn

Kendrick kicks off the single with his rapid flow over the piano-heavy loop. Once the police sirens pass, the classic instrumental commences as the face of TDE unleashes his slick verse alongside Tip. I’ve always wondered what a K. Dot/ATCQ collabo would sound like, and it’s everything I imagined. Phife Dawg would be proud.
