Kung Fu Kenny is making 2017 his own. After his electrifying Coachella performance last month, Kendrick Lamar delivered another scintillating live show at Rolling Loud Festival this weekend. K.dot performed a host of tracks from DAMN. whilst accompanied by fireworks, pyrotechnics and video clips of King Kong and Muhammad Ali in the backdrop. Kendrick also treated the crowd to classics from his back catalogue of hits such as “Swimming Pools,” “Backstreet Freestyle” and a new freestyle over “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” which starts at the 11:38 mark. Watch his performance above.
Kendrick's live show at Rolling Loud arrived fresh from the news of his album, DAMN., going platinum in under a month since it was released - a fact which he mentions in the "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" freestyle. Every song from DAMN. charted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart after shifting more than 600,000 units in its first week. Kendrick’s also pulled out all the stops for his videos from DAMN. too. The most recent of which saw him go full Kung Fu Kenny alongside Don Cheadle on his rambunctious track, “DNA.” Revisit the video below.
