We don’t have details on Kendrick Lamar‘s highly-anticipated new album just yet, but the prelude continues to trickle out. On Thursday, Kendrick made a surprise appearance at “We Day Toronto” in the Air Canada Centre and performed his new song “i” live for the first time. Fortunately, someone close to the stage snagged a solid video of it.
The version you hear in the video above is a little different than the Rahki-produced studio version, as Kendrick’s live backing band was on hand to rock it out.
Lamar was a surprise guest at “We Day Toronto,” an educational event for students and teachers (among other guests) that aims for social change.
The Compton-bred rapper still hopes to announce his new album before the end of 2014, though no formal announcements have been made.
