Art Imitating Life: Kendrick Lamar On Full Display At His Art Show in Brooklyn

(AllHipHop News) Kendrick Lamar’s music is multifaceted, lyrically dense and after last night’s The good kid m.A.A.d. city Art Show in Brooklyn last night (May 2nd) it is now truly inspirational.

At a semi-private event hosted by Footaction in DUMBO area of Brooklyn, NY at the Galapagos Art Space, 20×30 canvased artwork inspired by Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city were on display. The artwork for over 20 finalists were chosen to be showcased.

Not one to disappoint, Kendrick accompanied the art viewing with raucous yet at times disjointedly subdued performances of a few good kid, m.A.A.d city  favorites. Decked in a Hood By Air T-shirt, the enigmatic MC addressed the crowd

Check out a few of the artwork below and the full gallery at Creative Allies website. Check out the video of Kendrick’s performances below the gallery.

    Good look.


    im sure that this will be a “hater comment” but this shit is weird and pretty pompous if you ask me. He opened up a gallery with a bunch of pictures of him because he dropped his first album?

      “The artwork for over 20 finalists were chosen to be showcased.”

      Creative Allies had a contest of who can make the best Kendrick Lamar-inspired art and the finalists were on display.

      • Exactly, and where in the article did it say K. Dot opened the gallery?? I swear people’s readin comprehension skills these days ain’t on SHIT…LOL (Dude’s not yours)

      • It’s the shitty reporting on this site that’s the issue. Reading the headline and even the article, I thought Kendrick Lamar had a show and that he had created a bunch of pictures of himself.

      • Yeah I feel ya on the headline part, that was misleadin as a mufukka like most AHH headlines…once I read the article though I knew it wasn’t actually HIS show.


        It doesn’t say “his” art show? he didn’t attend it? Kendrick Lamar and Interscope have no influence over what people do with his name and image? oh my bad i didn’t know, my reading comprehension skills are too low. My statement stands, shit is weird yo, Id expect it from drake b4 kendrick.

      • I’m just goin off what you said fam…you said gallery, which is the building the show was held in…they may have been behind the show (which the article don’t even say that either), but I’m quite sure neither Kendrick nor Interscope opened the gallery itself.
