We wonder if this will be Kendrick Lamar’s first trip down to Gulf Shores, Alabama? The Compton rapper is scheduled to hit the stage at the Hangout Music Festival this weekend, along with performers that include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, The Roots, Public Enemy and Bloc Party.
The festivities begin on Friday and run through Sunday (May 17 -19) when MTV teams up with VH1 and CMT to bring you full coverage of the annual festival, which will be headlined by Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon and Tom Petty. Expect live-streams and behind-the-scenes access to your favorite performers like K. Dot and Macklemore.
In addition to throwback fan favorites, Kendrick Lamar will treat the crowd to tracks from his major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, the latest video for which he released on Monday (May 13). In the anticipated visuals for “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” the thoughtful MC takes some time to eulogize Molly, hip-hop’s drug of the moment.
MTV, VH1 and CMT will be on the ground at Hangout 2013, bringing you all the latest news, interviews, performances and more from the Shores. If you’re not able to be there, be sure to check in and watch live streaming performances all weekend.
