The Jay-Z-guesting remix of Kendrick Lamar's "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" (off 2012's stellar good kid, m.A.A.d citymade its debut at SXSW during a set by engineer and producer Yung Guru. Now you can check out the whole cut via Funkmaster Flex.

With the song's helium-voiced hook re-dubbed to "trick don't kill my vibe," the remix features two new verses from Lamar that rival the originals. They find the fired-up Compton MC riffing on going platinum with nonchalance, "turning urinals to eulogies – pissed off" and boasting about entering the upper echelons of hip-hop with ease.

For his part, Hov sounds livelier than ever, spitting quick lines like a hungry upstart – and bragging about sitting next to Hillary (Clinton, presumably) while "smellin'  like dank" is a good way to prove he hasn't lost a step.
