Yawk Yawk Yawk!

If Kendrick and the Dragons got along, it’ll look like this. And tonight, the alternative Rock band, joined King Kendrick for an electrifying performance of his Grammy nominated-album’s track, “m.A.A.d City” and then debuted their remix of the band’s “Radioactive”. Taylor approved. Ha!

    They both killed it. The performance had a lot of energy. Kendrick killed that second verse too. What song is that from though, I feel like I heard that verse before?

    • Dwight Stewart

      i know the first verse was m.a.a.d city.

    • EMoney

      He started the second verse from a part of “I Am” and the rest is on the official remix of radioactive

        • wtf

          So I’m supposed to go to some website to understand the lyrics to a song performed live on TV? That makes a lot of sense.

          • Dwight Stewart

    • Aube Jolicoeur

    Best performance of the night. Kendrick MURDERED it. He said “fuck everything.”

  • djs on ice

    trust me, i love kendrick and his music and all that. but this here didn’t do it for me. I couldn’t get past the way he was rapping, like he was out of breath every line. and the songs didnt go well together at the transition. plus the energy completely shifted because nobody at the grammys were actually excited to see kendrick lamar perform that song, then they went bat shit crazy when imagine dragon came back in. just saying. love ya kenny but this was booty. work on your stage presence and breathing brother. at this rate drake just might be the top nigga in rap for some years

    • Word

      If you’ve ever watched the countless times Kendrick has performed this song, you would know thats just how he performs it. Not a breathing thing, its just how he does it. And its funny because stage presence is actually considered his strongest point. Don’t know where you were going with this critique. It was a great performance overall.

      • jacob

        no its just the way he performs, ive been to many live shows and ill tell you kendricks had to be one of the worse, not saying he isnt amazing at making his music but his live performance is not good

    • McGlock

  • polopolo1

    This was really the best rock rap collab I’ve seen in a long time, it annoyed me that a all them old white folks sat down for this shit but got live when willie Nelson’s old ass was playing, but I guess it is a bit youthful

  • Denise

    Google – Rapper Kenny Thomas
