Day two of the Bonnaroo festival went down yesterday in Manchester, Tennessee and fans were definitely treated to a great show. On top of performances by Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Atmosphere, and Run the Jewels, K. Dot and Chance the Rapper also took the stage during Earth, Wind & Fire’s set for an impromptu freestyle session.
Earth, Wind & Fire bassist Verdine White had never met Kendrick Lamar until he saw Lamar and Chance the Rapper at the side of the stage during their late-night set and the band invited them out to freestyle.
“I knew who he was, but it wasn’t planned,” White said afterwards. “We stayed up there — what — 90 minutes? We were only supposed to be up there 70 minutes. You know, you just go. You don’t think about it, you just keep going. He’s in the band right now.”
Miss out on the moment? So did we. Thankfully a few folks didn’t and managed to capture some amateur footage. Check it out below while we wait for higher quality.
