Kendrick Lamar and visual artist Shantell Martin provided an exhilarating 75-minute performance at Art Basel in Miami for their partnership with American Express’ Music Meets Art Campaign Thursday night (Dec. 1).
Besides delivering a mind-blowing showcase, Lamar and Martin demonstrated their seamless chemistry in a new video featuring the two flexing their creative muscles for American Express. First, Kendrick walks in and finds a beat-making machine and quickly hops on it to cook up several beats. Then, Shantell proceeds to walk in after and begins drawing on a blank canvas, while Kendrick continues chopping up different sounds. Together, the two produce a captivating work of art.
For those that missed the epic show last night, don’t fret, highlights of the performance are also included in the video, as well.
