Novel "B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe" (Cover)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

To be honest, I'm surprised I haven't heard much more of this already. Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city standout track "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" always sounded like it was just screaming for a covers (in large amounts), to me. Today, Novel obliges that request with his "soul/jazz" recreation of the aforementioned song. One of the best songs of 2012 right there, and I'd say Novel did it justice with this cover. Watch Novel and his band piece the track together in the studio, in the vid below.
