Kendrick Lamar Throws Out First Pitch at Dodgers Game

Kendrick Lamar loves L.A. Riding high off the success of To Pimp a Butterfly, the Compton rapper made a triumphant return to Dodger Stadium on Monday. Decked out in his Dodgers gear, he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers-Giants game. With his latest single “King Kunta” playing, he took the pitcher’s mound and tossed the ball across home plate to Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford.

“On a scale of 50 Cent to 10, Kendrick’s toss was a seven,” wrote MLB blog Cut4.
