Kendrick Lamar is currently in New York City to prepare for his first-ever appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend alongside Maroon 5’s Adam Levine. K-Dot couldn’t plan a trip to the Big Apple without paying a visit to Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex Show on Thursday night. With classic beats from Prodigy, Nas, and Wu-Tang Clan, the Compton MC displays his wordplay in two exclusive freestyles.

In related news, Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city “Swimming Pools (Drank)” single is now certified platinum. Good chance the album can reach the same status, so support on iTunes.

Watch Kendrick’s freestyles on Funkmaster Flex, plus footage from his recent concert in London below…..
