Kendrick Lamar returned to The Breakfast Club to speak on a variety of topics, touching upon both Detox‘s release and “PARTYNAUSEOUS”, a collaboration with Lady Gaga that was slated to appear on Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, but was ultimately removed from the tracklist.
“Me personally? I think it’s done. I think it’s been done, from the records I heard. But Dre? He wants to give it to you when [he] feels like they rightfully deserve it,” he said in regards to the release of Detox.
“Me and Lady Gaga, we really good friends. She’s not on the album. We got some records, but when I was breaking down the bulk of the album, the ones we picked, we set them aside for future reference,” the West Coast lyricist said. “I already had everything premeditated for this day, for October 22nd.”
Lady Gaga followed up with a statement of her own, via LittleMonsters.Com.
“I apologize to the fans that this situation with Partynausous is confusing. To it clear it up I must explain this. When I collaborate with an artist i work solely with them, not with their camps or management. Its purely organic and creative. I love Kendrick dearly as a friend, but was not willing to compromise musically to the changes his team was making to my music. This is why I am not his record. I have a very specific vision as a producer and songwriter, and I always have. That song will be released at a different time, for a different project. I love you, and think you should check out his stuff because he is truly great. He’s a good kid, its just sometimes a mad city. -LG”
