The Good Kid Makes an Appearance in Our Mad City
As “Forbidden Fruit” came to an end, with the crowd completely clueless to who was about to show up, Kendrick Lamar runs out on to the stage to a roaring crowd completely enthralled by his appearance. “New York City! Can I kick something for ya’ll?!” Kendrick yelled and of course the crowd screamed in approval. Lamar performed both “Backseat Freestyle” and “m.A.A.d. City” before he made a speech in honor of his friend Jermaine. He told the crowd how Cole inspires him to be a bigger man and shows his appreciation to his boy for being the first cat to open their arms to him back when he didn’t know much about the music industry. Lamar praises the Born Sinner saying “This is your fuckin’ day, man,” and continues to let the crowd know that Cole is more than just a friend, but that’s his brother. To see such amazing artists come together with such comradery was truly an honor and we can only hope their collaboration album is soon to come.
