The 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards gave fans a reason to crank their TV volume all the way up. West coast based rapper Kendrick Lamar took over the stage like a veteran as he did a cover of the classic Tupac and Dr.Dre hit ‘California Love.’
Only a couple of months removed from his killer performance at the NBA All-Star Game in February, Kendrick Lamar, blessed the mic again at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on May 1. Kendrick chose to do a cover of “California Love” and received nothing but love from the crowd for it.

Kendrick, a son of LA, didn’t hold back during his performance. His set was packed with more instruments than electronic music which made the set that much more natural.
Kendrick hit the stage in just a baseball cap, jeans, t-shirt and a jacket. Nothing fancy here, just good music, and an artist who was thrilled to be doing a cover of one of his idols.
Next, the award-winning MC made sure to include the hook from his track “m.a.a.d city.” Everyone had their hands up for that banger.
