Why the F**k is Gucci Mane on Kendrick Lamar’s “Vanity Slave (Pt. 2)”? (Listen & Download)

Kendrick Lamar Vanity Slave Pt. 2
I think the headline pretty accurately reflects the first thing that went through all our minds when we heard that west coast lyricist and Dr. Dre co-signed rapper Kendrick Lamar had a new joint, "Vanity Slave (Pt. 2)", featuring none other than the ice cream cone man himself, Gucci Mane. What the fuck is going on here?

First and foremost, those hardcore hip-hip heads currently having a minor aneurysm can relax. Yes, the Guccster is indeed on the track, but his presence is about as minimal as it could get. He doesn't do more than say some random gibberish in the background. But that actually just makes me even more confused - why the fuck is Gucci on this track again? Is it an ironic statement? Is he essentially mocking Gucci, and if so, does Gucci even know. After all, what other reason could there possibly be to include one of the kings of shallow materialism on a track warning against shallow materialism.

I don't know what the fuck's going on here. A little help RefinedHype Nation? Anyone? Anyone?
