Compton odd couple Kendrick Lamar and YG join Young Jeezy for the official remix of “R.I.P.,” the stiff, immediately recognizable club hit from producer DJ Mustard. The track, which ended up on Jeezy’s It’s Tha World tape last year, was originally offered to YG, says YG. “Jeezy made that song for me. He made the hook then said, “YG take this song for your single.” I did verses for it and everything, but I was like, “You really think this could be my single? I don’t fuck with this shit.” So he took the song for himself, and that motherfucker blew up. I’m hot about that! Like, damn, that was supposed to be my song!” Chris Brown’s hot too, continuing his skirmishing with Drake with this third-verse line: If you started from the bottom/gon on and come out the closet.
