Kendrick Lamar performs arty set at Faena Dome

Nick Nehamas

Grammy Award-winning hip hop star Kendrick Lamar treated Art Basel-goers to an artistic set Thursday night at the Faena Dome in Miami Beach.

The rapper was accompanied by visuals from British artist Shantell Martin that were projected onto the inner roof of the dome, a temporary structure set up on the sand behind the Faena Hotel, part of a new arts-centered district in Mid-Beach.

The show was sponsored by American Express. Guests had to be Amex card holders.

In addition to hits including “Money Trees ” and “ADHD,” Lamar gave the fans what they wanted.

“I’ll sign your panties, your hat, your school clothes, your shirt, I don’t care,” shouted the rapper, who was as good as his word

Security ignored the righteous plumes of marijuana smoke that billowed to the top of the dome during the performance.
