Over the weekend, Kendrick Lamar's iconic breakthrough album good kid, m.A.A.d. city celebrated its fifth anniversary. In honor of the occasion, Punch TDE (president of Lamar's label Top Dawg Entertainment) shared a few tweets with some interesting tidbits related to the record's creation - namely that André 3000 was at one time attached to the project. Read his tweets below.

Referring to André as '3 Stacks,' Punch reveals that the OutKast-member was slated to appear on the track "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe." However, he was unable to step in for a verse due to commitments filming All Is By My Side, the Jimi Hendrix-biopic in which André played the title role. Lady Gaga was also supposed to feature on the initial version of the track, but she too was scrapped. The remixed "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" eventually settled on a verse from JAY-Z.

Revisit the original version of the track below.

In other music news, SZA is apparently working on a new album with Tame Impala and Mark Ronson. Get the scoop on that here.
