It’s been a busy weekend for Kendrick Lamar, releasing his fourth studio album and headlining America’s biggest music festival all in one weekend is no small feat – but the Compton rapper has pulled it off.
During his headline set at Coachella, Lamar played a series of his biggest hits from good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly and DAMN. as well as bringing out special guests Travis Scott and Future.
The set opened with a montage of Kung Fu visuals and our boy “Kung Fu Kenny” pulling some moves. The clip finished with the album’s intro “BLOOD.” Which features a sample of Geraldo Rivero criticising Kenny on Fox news – a sample that Rivera wasn’t too happy about.
The “Swimming Pools” artist performed a handful of DAMN. track, despite the record only being a out a few days, unsurprisingly “Humble” – which has been out a couple of weeks – got the best reaction. Lamar was then joined by Travis Scott for a rendition of their collab track “goosebumps” and also by Future, when Kendrick took on the hypeman role and allowed Hendrix to perform his current smash hit “Mask Off”.
