Funkadelic Taps Kendrick Lamar for "Ain't That Funkin'" Remix

Funkadelic and Kendrick Lamar: The collaboration you didn't know you wanted, but certainly always neededTo Pimp a Butterfly proved it, and today's new song cements it.

The legendary act brought Kendrick along for the 10-plus-minute ride that is "Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard on You?" Don't worry, if the length worries you, there's a four-minute single version, too. You're good.

It doesn't take terribly long for Lamar to appear, contributing a breakneck rhyme against the horn-infused, bass-driven beat, oomphs and all.

This here's a remix, by the way; "Ain't That Funkin'" originally appears Lamar-less on Funkadelic's 2014 album First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate in a five-minute, slower-tempo form. Thank Louie Vega, who helmed the redo.
