If that wasn't enough fans were treated to a special surprise when Kendrick Lamar was welcomed on stage to a huge ovation. Kendrick performed a couple of his own singles including “Cartoons & Cereal” and “Alright” off his latest album To Pimp A Butterfly.
In the midst of performing, Cole takes a couple breaks in between songs to break down the storylines behind the music which fans were quite engaged to hear. He also described why he picks smaller venues to host his annual Dollar and a Dream Tour. Cole confessed he likes the intimate relationship he feels with his audience, along with the personal satisfaction it gives him being able to break down the logic behind the music.
