Sources tell Rap-Up.com that the song features an Isley Brothers’ sample(this is going to be good). Kendrick has been vocal about his love for the R&B group.

“There’s some music I’ve been listening to that I haven’t really been talking about,” he told Flaunt magazine last year. “I haven’t been listening to any rap for the last six months. I bought the whole Isley Brothers collection.”

Kendrick’s sophomore album is due this fall featuring production from Dr. Dre and TDE’s in-house producers Digi+Phonics.

“There was a lot left out of good kid—it could have been a 30-track album,” he told Rolling Stone of the follow-up to his 2012 debut. “There are a few new [songs] that can tie in with what I was talking about.”
