While his Music Matters Tour was running through the East Coast, Kendrick Lamar stopped by Hot 97 to put his bars on live display for Funkmaster Flex and the entire city of New York. The Compton MC kicked an extended freestyle over the instrumental to Big‘s classic “Who Shot Ya.”

For about three straight minutes, K-Dot assaulted Nashiem Myrick‘s banger, seemingly making it a point to put on the strongest showing possible for the city’s hyper-critical Hip-Hop audience. If they weren’t already looking forward to the Black Hippy’s debut LP, this freestyle surely piqued some interest.
