If it's a sample, my guess is Bullet or 40.

Oh no. Kygo> Kendrick lamar. I can understand a DJ adding "sick beats" but u2 entering rap territory??? No no no!!!! Hope it's just a sample of iris or something

Kendrick is an incredible talent. And if you don't think U2 should be working with rappers, you need to go back in time and tell them to avoid Will.i.am and Jay-Z and Kanye, all those rappers that they've already worked with in one way or another.

Neither of those points negate that U2 have been working with rappers for years. And I think that Jay-Z is one of the best rappers out there, which is a pretty established concept in popular music. Just because you aren't into it doesn't mean that U2 shouldn't be willing to explore and stretch their experience. And if cussing bothers you, you do know that the members of U2 swear like sailors, right?

MATTTEEE  Kendrick is not rap cursing, are you messing with me, this guy is a lyrical genius, he talks about sh***t that is going on in this damn world and within his culture, he is only MC rapping against the drug culture, rapping against the violence, this guy is beyond insane, LISTEN TO HIS WORDS.

Kendrick Lamar is one of the "rap people" I listen to.  His last album, To Pimp a Butterfly, was a great album, as well as important political statement.

My 18-year-old son told me about this last night.  At first I thought he was joking.  We both cringed.  He because he thinks U2 are washed-up has-beens, and me because I don't want to see U2 embarrass themselves.

That being said, it's probably a sample.  That being said, being said -- I trust Kendrick Lamar enough to know whatever it is, it must sound cool.

"Go tell your mama this d**k ainít for free
This d**k ainít, this d**k ainít
This d**k ainít, this d**k ainít
This d**k ainít for free"

Yeah, seems like lyrical genius to me!

In all seriousness, though, I am very intrigued to hear this collaboration. It's a step into new territory for U2, so assuming that this credit isn't just a sample, we could be seeing a more experimental U2. I'm not a rap enthusiast by any means, but if there is anything positive to take away from a potential Kendrick Lamar/U2 collab, it's that.

lmaoooo so your only counter is lyrics off an interlude which were about a black mans stereotype in the culture of rap?

Anyone who wants to listen to some superb Kendrick and can handle some naughty words should listen to The Blacker The Berry on To Pimp A Butterfly. This is as honest, as justifiably angry, and as articulate as anything out there at the moment, even if he doesn't phrase what he's saying exactly the way you would. That song still shakes me up every time I hear it.

His last album was unmastered untitled.

If you're going to judge an artist by their most juvenile work rather than by their best, there would be no such thing as a great, or even mediocre, lyricist. That's not a fair metric at all.

That would be like judging the entirety of U2s catalogue based on the lyrics to Elevation...

Oh gosh-- you're right.  I kind of forgot about that one because it was leftovers from To Pimp a Butterfly.  Good Kidd Bad City was excellent, as well.
