Kendrick Lamar Performs “These Walls” With The National Symphony Orchestra

Kendrick Lamar performed songs from “TPAB” last night with a full orchestra.

Last night, Kendrick Lamar and the National Symphony Orchestra joined forces to perform the choicest cuts from To Pimp A Butterfly at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, a sequel to Nas’ 2013 performance of Illmatic with the NSO Pops. As symphonies struggle to find an audience with today’s young people, these sorts of shows are probably the wisest move they could make.

“These Walls” is the first video the Kennedy Center has released from the performance — we can only hope the rest of the performance will be coming soon. Shoutout to whoever arranged this. The whole thing is a sight to behold and it really gets good about a minute and half from the end.
