Kendrick Lamar Performs “Element,” “i” and More at 2017 Coachella
Last night (April 23), the 2017 Coachella Music Festival wrapped up its second weekend of its hefty artist lineup in California, and it had some tough acts to follow after last weekend. While Friday night (April 21) saw Radiohead rocking the venue out, and Lady Gaga spreading her vocals through the night, Kendrick Lamar closed out the festival with a bang.
The "DNA." rapper brought out some major surprise guests last weekend, including Future and Travis Scott, but weekend two saw K. Dot going solo for his full set on the main stage. Lamar performed a slew of his biggest hits, including "i" and "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe," and even debuted some fan favorites off of his recently released DAMN. album for the first time live. Not only did he perform his current single, and biggest hit to date, "HUMBLE.," but he also surprised fans by doing the live version of "ELEMENT.," off the project. The Compton MC stood on stage by himself throughout his set, as his band was hidden for majority of his performance. Fortunately, fans still got to see the Kung Fu Kenny film that caught the attention of his stans last week, with Don Cheadle confirming where the monicker stems from.
Earlier today, the To Pimp a Butterfly rapper announced The Damn. Tour, where he will be hitting the road starting July 12 in Pheonix, Ariz., with both Travis Scott, as well as D.R.A.M. The tour is slated to wrap up on Aug. 6 in Los Angeles, hitting a total of 17 cities.
