Kendrick Lamar Song Mentioned During Oscar Pistorius Murder Trial
Oscar Pistorius and his late girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp reportedly argued about Kendrick Lamar's "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" via text.
Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city record “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” managed to make its way into Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial this week due to a past text message conversation between Pistorius and his now deceased girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
Steenkamp was a South African model and reality star who was shot to death by Pistorius at his home in February of last year.
According to NME.com, in the text conversation, Steenkamp stated that she was “scared of” Pistorius and was “happy 90% of the time.”
"I'm scared of you sometimes and how u snap at me and of how you will react to me,” a message from Steenkamp read. “You make me happy 90% of the time and I think we are amazing together but I am not some other bitch you may know trying to kill your vibe."
In response to Steenkamp’s text, Pistorius sent a series of messages that read: “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 shit 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," he added.
Pistorius, who is both a Paralympic and Olympic athlete, claims he accidentally shot Steenkamp four times after he mistook her for an intruder. His murder trial began in early March in the High Court of South Africa in Pretoria. He faces both murder and gun charges.
