(AllHipHop News) Los Angeles native Kendrick Lamar is scheduled to do a show in the very East Coast city where he planted his flag as king next month. The TDE rapper will be joined by one New York rhymer for his concert at Williamsburg Park in Brooklyn – Bishop Nehru.
Kendrick sparked a firestorm earlier this week when he proclaimed himself the “King of New York” in his verse on Big Sean’s “Control.” The tongue-n-cheek proclamation led to numerous NYC based emcees releasing “Kendrick Lamar Response” tracks as a form of the nonviolent, verbal sparring that has long been tradition in Hip Hop culture.
As the friendly competition has energized New York rappers to jump in the booth to offer their replies, the Black Hippy member will actually share a stage with one of NYC’s bright young stars in Bishop Nehru. The 16-year-old will be the only New York rapper on the bill at the Williamsburg show.
“Really looking forward to hittin’ the stage on Sept 10th. Going to hold it down for NYC,” says Bishop.
Fellow Black Hippy rappers Jay Rock and Ab-Soul will also be performing at the Williamsburg Park show on September 10th. To purchase tickets visit ticketmaster.com.
