Just last year, Kendrick Lamar performed at The Kennedy Center. Alongside the National Symphony Orchestra, K. Dot put on an amazing performance tracks like, “These Walls,” “i,” and “Alright,” off his album To Pimp A Butterfly. Now, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has just named legendary rapper and producer Q-Tip, the artistic director for hip-hop. Additionally, hip hop has earned permanent spot in the organization going forward.
