Last time these two elite level emcees met, was on their “Complexion” collaboration off To Pimp a Butterfly. Now Kendrick Lamar and Rapsody reunite for a new song called “Power”. The Jamla/Roc Nation spitter kicks things off on the cut, which appears on her new album “Laila’s Wisdom”. Following a great verse from Rapsody, Kendrick comes through to a handful of bold statements throughout his verse.

“I shot ni**as, then shot movies 10 years later,” he raps. “Dear God, why you show me so much favor? / Amongst the haters and wickedness / Deliver this child from evil convictions and frivolous / Debates about who’s the preeminent emcee of the millennium / And it’s all for the Benjamins, and I’m all of y’alls nemesis / And I’m all in all happy none of y’all can fathom who Kendrick is / The only one that ever did wrote Book of Genesis / Motherfucker, that’s power.”

Out today, Laila’s Wisdom is set to feature appearances from Anderson .Paak, Black Thought, BJ the Chicago Kid, Busta Rhymes, and more. Listen to “Power” below
