Last night, the inaugural iHeartRadio Awards invaded television sets nationwide and featured performances by some of the most relevant musicians in music culture. Representing Hip-Hop were more than worthy candidates Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar.
The renowned Neptune producer embraced his year of flourish during his time on stage by performing a medley of records like Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Daft Punk’s “Get Luck,” as well as “Come Get It Bae” and “Happy” from his G I R L album.
K. Dot’s performance was a lot more intimate and was prefaced by a brief clip of his experience seeing Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur shooting a video in his native Compton during his childhood. Next came a live cover of the Death Row duo’s famed collaboration “California Love” and his own good kid, m.A.A.d city hit “M.A.A.D City.”
