In 2017, there’s no more sure-fire a way to get a Southern California crowd turned all the way up than with an appearance from Los Angeles’s rap superstar of the moment Kendrick Lamar. That’s exactly what Chris Brown did on Tuesday night in Anaheim for the latest stop in his cross-country Party tour.
Brown was midway through the show when Kung Fu Kenny seemed to pop up out of nowhere and began furiously rapping his No. 1 hit song “Humble.” Brown remained onstage dancing while Kendrick got the thousands in attendance at the Honda Center on their feet, especially for the moment in the song where he’d typically rap, “My left stroke just went viral!” which he let the crowd scream for him.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Breezy and K Dot have occupied the same space. Back in 2015, Kendrick entered the booth and added a guest verse to Brown’s lithe ballad “Autumn Leaves.”
Kendrick has been on a live music tear lately. First came his two weekend-stealing performances at Coachella. Then there was his festival-ending set at Rolling Loud in Miami. That was followed by the guest appearance at The Weeknd’s recent gig last month at the Forum in L.A. By the time he kicks off the first date of his upcoming DAMN tour in July, the dude is going to be a well-oiled machine.
