Buddy f/ Kendrick Lamar – “Staircases” (Prod. The Neptunes) | New Music

I know you were excited when Buddy and Kendrick Lamar previewed their Neptunes produced joint track “Staircases” at SXSW a short while ago. The triplet have kept pretty mum about the whole thing, but today – to much surprise – the track has hit the net in its full CDQ glory.

As we gathered from the footage (however poor it may have been), it didn’t take a veteran’s ear to recognise those quintessential piano melodies, stripped drum sequences and hi hat stabs Pharrell and Chad Hugo have become iconic for.

And while it may be Skateboard P’s protege’s track on paper – and he certainly fills that necessary soulful element, not to deprive him of due credit – but Kendrick Lamar is an overshadowing force right now and he proves every megabyte of his internet hype with his proficient verse.

“Staircases” looks to land on Buddy’s forthcoming mixtape, Idletime, that will also feature the previous “Awesome Awesome” record.
