Thundercat Explains WOKE, His Super-Group With Flying Lotus And Shabazz Palaces

On Flying Lotus: “He’s the kind of guy that completes sentences, so to speak.”

October 13, 2015

Just before he took the stage at this month's #uncapped presented by The FADER and vitaminwater®, Thundercat sat down with The FADER to discuss one of his biggest strengths: collaborations. Thundercat is a master of playing well with others—his work with Kendrick Lamar is some of his most well-known, while the news of his super-group with Flying Lotus and Shabazz Palaces made his fans freak out.


He told us more about the group and promised that more music is coming, and also gushed about working with George Clinton. His ultimate dream collaboration? That would be boat-rock vets Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald. Check out our video with Thundercat above.
