Kendrick Lamar will perform with a full orchestra next month.
The rapper will perform songs from his 'To Pimp a Butterfly' album at the Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts in Washington DC on October 20.
An announcement on the venue's website reads: ''Kendrick Lamar brings his unique brand of jazz-infused hip-hop to the NSO Pops for a one-night-only performance featuring some of Lamar's biggest hits and cuts from his lyrical masterpiece 'To Pimp a Butterfly'.''
Steven Reineke, who is in his fifth year as Principal Pops Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra, will conduct the performance.
Kendrick released his third studio album 'To Pimp a Butterfly' to critical acclaim earlier this year and revealed he inspired to make an album void of ''catchiness'' following the success of his second record.
He explained: ''I wasn't in the space creatively to make any other type of record. I didn't have the urge to. You've got three singles on 'good kid, m.A.A.d City': 'Swimming Pools (Drank)', 'Poetic Justice', and 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe'. This time, I said to myself: 'I don't want the catchiness.' I want people to live with [the album] and dissect it for a long time.''
