“As a kid from the west side of Compton, hearing good kid, m.A.A.d city for the first time and seeing Kendrick’s journey from neighborhood hero to global superstar ignited a fire in me that I’m forever grateful for,” Tim Hinshaw, Amazon Music’s head of R&B and hip-hop, said in a statement released ahead of Saturday’s show. “It showed me that no matter where you start in life, hard work and dedication will put you where you hope and dream to be.”
While the tour itself focuses on this year’s Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers album, the Paris livestream coincides with the 10th anniversary of Kendrick’s “Swimming Pools”-featuring sophomore release good kid, m.A.A.d city.
Kendrick recently brought a trio of Mr. Morale tracks including the lead single “N95,” to Saturday Night Live. The album has remained a consistent presence in headlines since its May release, including in connection with heartwarming viral tour clips and praise from fellow artists.
In September, Kendrick shared the “We Cry Together” short film, starring Taylour Paige.
The Big Steppers Tour will continue following Saturday’s Paris stop with additional shows set for Zurich, Cologne, Glasgow, London, and more.
