Kendrick Lamar performs at FADER Fort for CMJ 2011 [Video]


My current musical addiction. West Coast lyricist Kendrick Lamar hit the FADER Fort stage at this year’s CMJ music festival in New York to perform an array of material including “Hol’ Up” and “A.D.H.D.” from his impeccable Section.80 album, plus “P & P” and “She Needs Me” from his even more striking [if it were possible] 2009 The Kendrick Lamar EP. The audio quality isn’t perfect but regardless, for those not in attendance [myself included] enjoy the performance below.

If you’re less familiar with Kendrick you might be also interested to check out the brief interview he sat down for following his performance, to discuss his releases to date, working with his in-house team at Top Dawg Entertainment and his Black Hippy rap crew with comrades ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul.
