Kendrick Lamar and Yelawolf made their way to Manchester, Tennessee on Thursday to kick off day one at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Yela hit “This Tent” for his set around 9p.m. performing songs like “Throw It Up” form his Radioactive debut, while Kendrick followed with Section.80 cuts like “Hol’ Up,” plus a performance of his Dr. Dre-featured single “The Recipe.” After their sets, MTV News caught up with both rappers for a little Bonnaroo pop quiz.
Some of the questions we threw at them? Spelling and defining “Bonnaroo,” and naming a few songs from headlining acts Phish, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Radiohead. Check out the footage above.
During his set, Kendrick took the time out to address one detractor in the front row. “He’s telling us that I’m not the best rapper alive today. Can I prove it to him?” Lamar said to the crowd, before launching into “Look Out for Detox.”
