During a concert in Sydney last night, the untitled unmastered. mastermind got an entire arena to honor the legendary musician by chanting his name.
“There’s 18,000 in this arena and I need one favor,” Lamar told the crowd. “We had a good time tonight, but I need a favor. Today we lost one of the pioneers in hip-hop by the name of Phife Dawg. We gonna give it up for him. He allowed me to do what I’m doing on this stage, right here, right now, today.”
