Watch Kendrick Lamar Freestyle With Fans During His Secret Brooklyn Show

They can surprisingly hold their own against Lamar.

December 17, 2016

During his secret show in Brooklyn on Friday, Kendrick Lamar took a break from performing to challenge a couple of fans from the crowd to a freestyle. One of the fans he brought on stage did surprisingly well, impressing Lamar with his bars, which you can watch in the video above around the 26-minute mark. While the guy is rapping, you can see Lamar walking around the stage with a grin on his face.

Later, Kendrick invites Kemba onstage, a fairly well-known New York rapper from the Bronx, for a short freestyle. Afterwards, Lamar remarks,"Kemba, remember that mother fucking name." Who knew Lamar had such a good eye for picking out talent?

Watch the entire show in the video above, and Kemba's rap below.

Update 8:39 p.m. EST: A previous version of this story mis-identified Kemba, and linked the wrong video. This post has been updated to correct this error.
