Watch Kendrick Lamar Throw First Pitch at L.A. Dodgers Game
Kendrick Lamar has been running the rap game for the better part of 2015, and yesterday (April 27), he took a crack at America's national pastime, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Los Angeles Dodgers hosted the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium. Check out video of the pitch below:
Lamar's throw, which was delivered with textbook form right down the middle, one-hopping just after the plate, was perfectly adequate and forgettable, which has proven to be the best-case scenario for musicians not looking to live in infamy like 50 Cent after his historically awful toss last year.
Lamar also spoke with former Dodgers pitcher and current Dodgers broadcaster Orel Hershiser, who likely approved of Lamar's blunder-free appearance:
We can't stress enough how busy Lamar has been: He recently premiered a collaborative track with Flying Lotus on BBC Radio 1, he's the face of a new Reebok ad campaign, he debuted the video for “King Kunta” on a billboard in Times Square, and he hinted at some new music with Dr. Dre. Lamar also starts a tour that includes dates in the U.S., Canada and Europe in May, the complete itinerary of which can be found here.
