Listening to the track now. It's not a sample! Bono sings a bit toward the end of the song. Not a huge presence on it.

Bono's lyrics (I think):

It's not a place
This country is to me a sound
of drum and bass
You close your eyes to look around

guys, its obviously NOT a sample. otherwise EVERY hip hop song would have "featuring" on all the tracks, listing where the sample came from.

It sounds like the whole band, not just Bono.

Awesome track. Love Kendrick so much and its so amazing to have U2 collab with him. Can't wait for the full album.

I never could have dreamed of hearing Bono's voice on a K Dot track

Damn this is really good. Such an interesting transition and Adam sounding groovy as hell.

This is a tweet from a producer at Kendrick's label, in regards to the leaked album, saying:

His next tweet is a picture of Morpheus from The Matrix with the text

So, the front cover and the back cover are similar, except red text vs green text. Is he hinting that there's 2 albums about to be released? Or it's a surprise double album? I guess even if that is what's about to happen, it likely wouldn't involve U2 any farther. Though if both sides/albums are connected, then you never know.

I just downloaded XXX ft U2 and it's easily one of the best tracks on the album. Adam's bass playing and Larry's drums sound great. Bono's vocals add a nice touch to the song. Once again, it appears I was right when predicted this was a going to be a strong track. Have faith in our boyz and chill the f@%^ out. I love the fact they collab with Kendrick Lamar. Lamar is no dummy. He knows talent when he sees it.

Upon listening to it again (on a proper set of speakers), it definitely sounds like Adam and Larry contributed to the track as well. Again, never really listened to a Kendrick Lamar song before this one, but my initial reaction to it is quite positive. I like that U2's contribution was kept somewhat subtle (it didn't drastically alter the song, but rather brought another dimension to it).

It's definitely single worthy with what's going on in the world
