Kendrick Lamar’s latest single “i” was selected to be the official soundtrack of the 2014-15 NBA season, so it seems only fitting that the Black Hippy emcee would perform the track live at an NBA event.

K. Dot was on hand in Cleveland as LeBron James returned home for the first time since rejoining with the Cavaliers.

While the Cavs would fall to the New York Knicks in the game, the crowd in Cleveland was treated to Kendrick hitting the stage with a live band outside the Quicken Loans Arena. Comedian Kevin Hart and basketball legend Charles Barkley helped introduce Lamar to the audience.
