Kendrick Lamar Performs at College Football National Championship Game


Kendrick Lamar headlined the halftime performance at the 2018 NCAA Football Playoff National Championship in Atlanta on Monday (Jan. 8). While a political showdown with attendee President Trump didn’t materialize, the electrifying showing saw Kung Fu Kenny perform a four-song medley. Sporting his white Nike “Cortez Kenny” sneakers, the Compton rapper started with “DNA.” before launching into “ELEMENT.”

As flames shot up, he launched into his chart-topping hit “HUMBLE.” as the audience mouthed along to every word. Sans SZA, he closed with the first performance of “All the Stars” from the upcoming Black Panther soundtrack.
