Kendrick Lamar Kicks Festival Founder Off Stage And Lets Fan Take His Job At Swe
Music Player: 

In an act of trust, and a true test of fandom, Kendrick Lamar offered a fan to join him on stage to perform during his set at Sweetlife Festival.

While about to perform his good kid, m.A.A.d city single "m.a.a.d city" the high profile rapper decided to chage things up a bit and allow a fan to come join him on stage. The catch is that fan had to know every, and he meant every, word to the song. Lamar trusted his fans to know the words to his songs, and this gesture was not for the fakers.

The first attempt involved the CEO of the festivals founding company Sweetgreen Jonathan Neman. Unfortunately, Neman bit off a little more than he could chew, or spit, and was quickly escorted off stage to a lovely round of boos and Apollo themed music.

Lamar gave the kind gesture a second try and brought a young lady named Ayanna to the stage to try the performance again; and the rest is history. Lesson being kids; if you say you're a fan, you better know the words.
