Hip-hop heads gathered around any wifi-enabled device as one of today’s most ambitious producers dropped new music with an equally provocative lyricist. Flying Lotus is preparing to unleash You’re Dead in October, but not before previewing a track with West Coast newcomer Kendrick Lamar.

The single “Never Catch Me” is carried by a soulful piano-laden melody laced to a frantic electro-pulsing. The two conflicting movements however complement each other well and are the perfect backdrop for Lamar’s stabbing delivery. You’re Dead is avaialble for pre-order now before its October 7th release. Lamar is slated to follow his monumental debut g.o.o.d kid m.a.d.d. city with an LP this fall.
