Kendrick Lamar performs “Backseat Freestyle” at FADER Fort SXSW [Video]


As if Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q weren’t enough for a headlining set at FADER Fort, the guys brought out friend and fellow TDE member Kendrick Lamar to close the show with a hyped up performance of “Backseat Freestyle.”

The FADER event, sponsored by Converse, had already seen the stage get rocked out by the headliners, and while the baying crowd were already amped up Kendrick Lamar came running onto the stage for the closing song, needing no introduction as the beat for “Backseat Freestyle” played in. His fans made it all too easy for him as they rapped along to every word of the song as Kendrick growled down the mic almost being drowned out by the excitement – watch the performance below.
