They traded instrumentals -- Kendrick offering "Alright" off this year's To Pimp A Butterfly, and Cole offering "A Tale of 2 Citiez" off 2014 Forest Hills Drive -- and laid down some new verses over each track.  Both are called "Black Friday."

Lamar and Cole have been rumored collaborators for a while, though nothing has yet been released. Cole hints at new music of some variety in his verse, saying, "But this February, bet shit gets scary when I fuck around and drop s---."
