Kendrick Lamar made a surprise appearance in Tempe, AZ last night for a free concert put on by Bacardi Plus. Club Red was the venue and the intimate spot was certainly a change of pace for Kendrick who was fresh off a Coachella performance.
The small crowd was definitely feeling Kendrick’s flows from his Overly Dedicated and Section 80 mixtapes. The Compton native closed out his set with a new track “The Recipe” as his last encore. Obviously Dr. Dre wasn’t there to complete the feature but Kendrick seemed to have no problem at all spitting his verse, further fueling the rumors that Dre’s part was completely written by Kendrick.
Either way, the concert was incredible and Kendrick’s debut album Good Kid in a Mad City will be one of the most anticipated drops of 2012.
