The revelation that Jay-Z will be on Kendrick Lamar’s remix of “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” has been one of the biggest surprises of the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. MTV recently caught up with Kendrick at the event to get his thoughts on collaboration, and the Compton MC says appearing on a track with Hov is a benchmark in his short career. “It’s all love. That’s the big homey,” said K. Dot. “It’s one of them things, you know, you live up to and one of them moments to really challenge yourself and say ‘OK, that’s how I come in. Always looked up to the greats to be a great.’ So to actually be on a track with him, it’s an accomplishment.”
