Kendrick Lamar dropped a freestyle on the topic of Trayvon Martin during a visit to Atlanta's Hot 107.9 FM for The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. K. Dot fielded words from the folks gathered in the studio and injected them into the rhyme as he spit off the top of the dome. His visit to the morning show followed his performance with Erykah Badu at the 2013 BET Awards - one in a trio of appearances from Kendrick Lamar that garnered great responses from the crowd. Kendrick beefed up his freestyle with his thoughts about the NBA Finals and his favorite cartoons as well as a few references to his standout tracks from his critically acclaimed LP good kid, m.A.A.d. city; Kendrick Lamar even sends a shout out to Sherane.
