Lamar’s percussive, singsong verse neatly contrasts Future’s laidback warble and the song’s mischievous flute hook. The remix comes one month after the duo delivered a fiery rendition of the track during Lamar’s weekend-one Coachella set.
It also serves as a mid-year victory lap for both rappers. In February, Future released two back-to-back No. 1 albums, FUTURE and HNDRXX; “Mask Off” has since become his highest-charting single to date, peaking at No. 5 earlier this month. Meanwhile Lamar’s DAMN. notched the highest first-week sales of 2017 with 603,000 copies, marking his third consecutive No. 1 album.
The track marks just the second collaboration between the two rappers, after Mike Will Made-It’s “Buy the World,” off his 2014 mixtape Ransom. Perhaps this remix hints at future collaborations between the rap titans. What a Time to Be Alive Pt. II, anyone?
