Watch kendrick lamar freestyle with a bunch of english teens

Kendrick Lamar’s always given off a genuine “man of the people” vibe, but that never felt more real than when he schooled a bunch of teens during an impromptu rap cypher.

The Compton MC recently attended a workshop for budding rappers in Manchester, England, sponsored by Reebok. What started out as an innocent meet-and-greet soon warped into a full-blown cypher, as the lucky young fans got the rare opportunity to trade bars with a Grammy winner.

If you’re assuming K. Dot went easy on the novices, think again. He dropped some crazy rhymes and definitely didn’t hold back — but the crop of fresh faces more than held their own against King Kendrick. Respect.
