Kendrick Lamar @ Coachella 2017 (pics, videos, setlist, guests)
Just two days before his headlining appearance at the Sunday of Coachella, Kendrick Lamar dropped his new album DAMN. (read our first-impressions review). Coachella was the first live show he played since its release, and he played almost every song from it. He opened the set just like he opens the album, with "BLOOD" going right into "DNA."
He also brought out some guests. The first was Travis Scott, for "Goosebumps," the Kendrick collab off last year's Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. Then Kendrick brought out his TDE pal Schoolboy Q (whose own Coachella set had surprise appearances from A$AP Rocky and Tyler the Creator) for Q's big 2016 hit "That Part," off the great Blank Face LP. Lastly, he brought Future (whose own Coachella set had surprise appearances from Drake, Migos, and Ty Dolla $ign). Future played "Mask Off" this year's self-titled LP.
Kendrick peppered the DAMN.-heavy set with older favorites like "King Kunta," "Alright," "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe," "Backseat Freestyle," "untitled 02," "untitled 07," and more. Check out the full setlist, videos, and more pictures below.
