For the second year in a row, Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) hosted an annual charity toy drive at Watt’s Nickerson Gardens Projects this week. Giving out toys to underprivileged kids as well as bringing some much needed holiday cheer, every member of the TDE crew was there so those in attendance were also treated to some performances as well.
Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SZA and Isaiah Rashad were all there, and each treated the audience to some of their own hits. Big Sean and Ty Dolla $ign were also brought out for surprise tracks, but the performance that has everyone talking is that of Black Hippy performing Jay Rock’s latest single, Vice City.
Black Hippy – consisting of Kendrick, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul – are one of hip-hop’s most formidable outfits, but due to the huge amounts of success each member is now experiencing, performances by the whole group have become a bit of a rarity. Fan footage of this latest performance has now surfaced on the internet, and it’s clear to see just how well these four work together. Playing around with each other whilst jumping on each other’s verses, the Black Hippy boys look right at home when they’re side by side. Take a look for yourself:
