Was Kendrick Lamar’s Pharrell Produced “Alright” Track was Originally for Fabolous?

During Fools Gold’s “Holy Ship” rap party last year, Pharrell played an unreleased (what sounds like) Fabolous track which can now be identified as having the same instrumental as Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly track ‘Alright’, where Pharrell has a production credit alongside producer Soundwave. You can check out a snippet of the Fabolous track in the video below (at the beginning) and compare it to Kendrick’s ‘Alright’, which is available now on iTunes. Although this isn’t a totally uncommon practice in rap, both tracks share a beat and hook, so let’s hope that Fabolous had no legal rights to the track, or Pharrell’s bank account may take another hit.
