Kendrick Lamar To Be Featured On Chris Brown’s Upcoming Album ‘X’

Kendrick will be featured on the somber ballad “Autumn Leaves.”

“I wanted to—not rattle the hip-hop world, but have people appreciate [that choice] like, ‘I didn’t expect that, but dang, that’s dope. I picked Kendrick because his subject matter as a lyricist is beyond everybody else’s. There’s a substance to what he says. It’s also fun to experience the ambitions and aspirations of a younger artist who’s just learning how the game works.”

– Chris Brown
