Kendrick Lamar Confirms ‘Bend Ya’ Is Collaboration With Mann, Frank Ocean
After much speculation about whether this collaboration between Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar is even a real track, the latter West Coast MC has verified that the song, titled "Bend Ya," indeed features himself, Ocean and rapper Mann.
With the rising tide of fake tracks, it is easy to see why this one raised so many questions. Not only is the audio quality fairly low, but several versions of the song, which belongs to Mann, have surfaced.
Ocean and Lamar's voices are easy to pick out, but one version includes someone named Shawn Chrystopher and another features Mann. There's yet another version with Chrystopher, Mann and rapper Jah-Free without a trace of Ocean or Lamar.
Kendrick Lamar's tweet Monday (Aug. 20) clarifies that the legitimate version of the track is the one that features himself, Ocean and Mann.
