Thundercat & Kendrick Lamar Stay In The Groove On “Walk On By” (Audio)

Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home. But, there are doubters, so, we need your help. If you have enjoyed anything on AFH over the last 7 years, we are asking you to subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Although he is not a Hip-Hop artist, Thundercat has been at the epicenter of the massive 2010s Rap movement in Southern California. The Los Angeles musician and vocalist has a particular bond with Kendrick Lamar. The pair have won Grammy Awards together, care of To Pimp A Butterfly songs like “These Walls,” “Wesley’s Theory,” and “Complexion (A Zulu Love).” In the spillover from that LP, last year’s Untitled. Unmastered, more collabos were unveiled.

Thundercat’s blend of Jazz, retro-Soul, and pensive instrumentation fits K-Dot quite nicely. On Drunk, T.C.’s third LP (February 24), Lamar returns the favor. “Walk On By” is a moving musing by Thundercat, which gives way to the Compton MC telling stories of the fine lines between right and wrong, safe and dangerous, dead and alive. The song is abstract, but a charming listen for fans of music that’s rich for interpretation.
