Kendrick Lamar paid tribute to late fashion designer Virgil Abloh at the Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection show in Paris with a performance of songs from his latest album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.
K.Dot calmly rapped album favorites including "Savior,” “Rich Spirit,” and "Count Me Out” before closing with "N-95" while seated next to his pgLang co-founder Dave Free and supermodel Naomi Campbell. He honored Abloh, who was the artistic director for Louis Vuitton before his death last November, repeatedly saying, "long live Virgil" at the close of his performance.
Kendrick has been busy sharing music from his latest critically-acclaimed album across the pond. On June 23, he also performed during day one of Spotify Beach at the Cannes Lions Festival in Cannes, France.
