Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper Freestyle With Earth, Wind, & Fire at Bonnaroo
Bassist Verdine White spotted the duo on the side of the stage
Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper both just put out records that make up the leading edge of a jazz-funk revival in rap music, so where better for these two leading lights to intersect than at an Earth, Wind, & Fire concert. Based on reports from USA Today, exactly that seems to have happened at Bonnaroo. During the iconic act’s set Friday night (which took place just after Kendrick’s), bassist Verdine White, who had apparently never met the pair, spotted them sidestage and invited them out to freestyle.
Fake Shore Drive compiled a couple of short videos from that brief appearance, which you can check out here.
