(AllHipHop News) American Hip Hop star Kendrick Lamar became a part of the murder trial of Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius in South Africa. Pistorius, aka The Blade Runner, is accused of killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013.
During the case, the prosecutor asked Pistorius if Lamar’s song “B***h, Don’t Kill My Vibe” led to an argument between he and Steenkamp during a car ride. A WhatsApp message that has been used as evidence in the trial included Steenkamp referring to the song.
The message included Steenkamp saying:
I’m scared of you sometimes and how u snap at me and how of you will react to me. You make me happy 90% of the time and I think we are amazing together but I am not some other b***h you may know trying to kill your vibe.
Pistorius then replied:
I was upset that you just left me after we got food to go talk to a guy and I was standing right behind you watching you touch his arm and ignore me. And when I spoke up you introduced me which you could’ve done but when I left you just kept on chatting to him when clearly I was upset. I asked Martin to put on that Kendrick Lamar album in the car and don’t know it… Granted that it was a s**t song but you should’ve just lent forward and whispered in my ear to change it seeing as I had to drive to pick up your friend.
When asked by Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel if the name of the song he was referring to was “B***h, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Pistorius claimed he could not remember. Nel replied that Steenkamp can’t confirm it either.
“We can’t ask her,” said Nel.
