Travis Scott went the TDE way for his last stop in NYC. At Wednesday’s (Nov. 28) NYC tour date, Scott brought Kendrick Lamar to the Astroworld stage to perform his verse on “Goosebumps.”
Sneaking up on stage during the chorus’ second run-around, Kendrick wow-ed the crowd, who’s roar got audibly more hype upon Lamar’s entrance.
A standout track off Scott’s 2016 release Bird In The Trap Sing McKnight, “Goosebumps” marks La Flame and K Dot’s first collaboration, though the energy is undeniably there. For the duration of the performance, the two kept the house rockin’ to their tempo, nearly driving the venue to flames with their combined star power.
In 2016, Scott spoke on his relationship with Lamar to Billboard, sharing a story of their unexpected interaction at one year’s MTV VMA’s.
“He came up to me and was just like, ‘Yo, man, I f–k with your music. It’s super dope and inspirational'” recalls Scott. “I was like, whoa, this is the best rapper in the globe — he f–ks with my music! That’s one of the things that made me want to keep working on my music and try to keep it going ’cause I’m not the most rappity rap ass n—a. That’s not me but I really love Kendrick’s music.”
