Kendrick Lamar may be one of Hip Hop's hottest artists out, but no amount of fame can curb the enthusiasm one gets from watching someone who you've always admired perform.

"My first time seeing Dre perform? At Coachella," Kendrick says. "It was a weird experience because I’d never seen him perform before and I’m 10 feet away from him. This is a person I looked up to my whole life. Watching videos, playing his music in the house… I had to really sit in that moment and realize what I was doing,"

In an interview with VEVO, Lamar says that Coachella was the first time he'd ever seen Dr. Dre perform. He was also thankful for his mentor's implementation of the Tupac hologram. You can watch the full video above.
