Kendrick Lamar says Prince didn't appear on album due to lack of time
Kendrick Lamar has admitted that a mooted Prince collaboration never made it on to his last album because of time constraints.
The rapper released the acclaimed 'To Pimp A Butterfly' in 2015 and he told Grammys.com that Prince was due to feature on it.
However, the icon's expected contribution to the song 'Complexion (A Zulu Love)' never materialised.
Lamar said: "Prince heard the record, loved the record and the concept of the record got us to talking.
"We got to a point where we were just talking in the studio and the more time that passed we realised we weren't recording anything. We just ran out of time, it's as simple as that."
The rapper and Prince previously performed live in 2014.
