Kendrick Lamar Performs A Legendary Medley At The 58th Grammy Awards

Kendrick Lamar

The 58th Grammy Awards were chock full of performances and homages, but Kendrick Lamar completely tore the roof off the building with his medley that included cuts from his 11-time nominated To Pimp A Butterfly (“The Blacker The Berry”/”Alright”) and his third live untitled track that ended in as iconic a way as possible:


2DopeBoyz got the exclusive with Kendrick where he revealed that he has plenty more unreleased material in his pockets: “I got a chamber of material from the album that I was in love where sample clearances or something as simple as a deadline kept it off the album. But I think probably close to ten songs that I’m in love with that I’ll still play and still perform that didn’t make the cut.”
