In amongst the talking, the ads, the ever-shrinking music airplay time, there are segments which make listening to the radio worthwhile. Last Tuesday just so happened to be one of those segments. Stopping by Big Boy’s Neighbourhood on Power 106FM, Kendrick Lamar was on-air to plug the release of new single ‘i’ and to also deliver a killer eight minute freestyle.
Rapping over Jay Z’s ‘Who You Wit’, James Brown’s ‘The Boss’, Freeway and Beanie Sigel’s ‘Roc The Mic’ and Dr. Dre’s ‘Deep Cover,’ this one is worth the watch.
