Kendrick Lamar performs with National Symphony Orchestra

In a one-off performance at the Kennedy Centre in Washington D.C, Kendrick Lamar teamed up with the National Symphony Orchestra to deliver live renditions of tracks from his latest album.

While much of his new album 'To Pimp A Butterfly' does lend itself to orchestral arrangement, you can tell that Lamar has always wanted to bring more of a live element to his productions and this seems the perfect match.

You can check some fan footage of the songs 'King Kunta', 'The Blacker The Berry' and 'i' in the players below.
