Los Angeles is home to many of the world’s biggest celebrities and many of them often make their way to Dodgers games, which included rapper Kendrick Lamar on Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves.
However, unlike most celebrities who sit in the box seats or dugout club, Lamar was among the rest of the fans in the right field pavilion of Dodger Stadium to take in the game against the Atlanta Braves.
Lamar was greeted by loud cheers when he was shown on DodgerVision and when fans realized he was sitting in the pavilion, a large crowd immediately gathered around.
However, the Grammy Award winner wasn’t able to see the Dodgers at their best as they Braves starter Max Fired pitched five perfect innings against them in a 3-1 loss as the offense had only two hits in the night.

Since then, he has won 14 Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, six Billboard Music Awards, a Brit Award, 11 MTV Video Music Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and an academy award nomination.
Along with his music career, Lamar has also partnered with Reebok and announced a collaboration with Nike.
In addition, he and Dave Free announced PGLAng, which is described as a multilingual artist-friendly company that is not focused on any specific genre of art. They recently announced a partnership with Tanna Leone, an L.A. based artist.
