Kendrick Lamar made an appearance at Paris Fashion Week, performing at the Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection show, where he paid tribute to the late designer Virgil Abloh.
During the show, which took place Thursday, Kendrick performed a number of songs, including hits from his new album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. It was the rapper’s outro to “Count Me Out” in which he paid tribute to Abloh, who was the artistic director for the fashion house before he died last November from cardiac angiosarcoma. “Long Live Virgil,” Kendrick said, before repeating Virgil’s name over and over.
This isn’t the first time the “N95” rapper paid tribute to Abloh. During the Super Bowl halftime show, he wore LV by Abloh.
