Yesterday Kendrick Lamar debuted a new track from his forthcoming studio album, entitled “i”. However, the song was met with a less than stellar reception with many fans unsure of the direction Kendrick was going on following the hugely successful good kid m.A.A.d city. Perhaps Kendrick felt the sting of the fans and media because he absolutely snaps on this Power 106 Los Angeles radio freestyle. Kendrick goes ham for roughly six straight minutes, freestyling over cuts from Jay Z and Nas. After the jump!

As if this headline weren’t ridiculous enough, watch the footage of Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino acting…well, childish. This is all part of a performance meant to hype a crowd in Sydney, Australia and to live precisely in a moment. But, the actor-turned-rapper is often so caught up in his own internet self-awareness (i.e. titling last year’s proper debut Because The Internet) that it’s hard to believe this was all spontaneous.
