Kendrick Lamar took the stage at Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama late Sunday night and as part of his performance, he invited an eager fan on stage to rap the track "M.A.A.D. City" with him.

As seen below, however, things quickly took a turn for the awkward when the fan, a young white woman, rapped the chorus of the song verbatim, including the N-word which appears at the end of each line in the chorus.

An audible groan can be heard from the audience after the first utterance. Lamar, for his part, handles it like a pro and does not hesitate to step in, stop the song and ask her not to use the racial slur. She quickly apologizes and the song starts over again.

Unfortunately, the young woman loses her place in the song and raps the order of the chorus lines incorrectly, resulting in even more groans from the crowd. Lamar then takes mercy on the young woman and calls an end to the appearance, while thanking her for the effort nonetheless.

A Reddit HipHopHeads thread on the video quickly received hundreds of comments, with many referencing the below video for ScHoolboy Q's thoughts on the appropriateness of using certain words, including the N-word, at hip-hop concerts.

Watch the concert video in the tweet above and view some more footage from the awkward moment below.
