Watch Kendrick Lamar Freestyle With Fans During His Secret Brooklyn Show

They can surprisingly hold their own against Lamar.

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.
