Kendrick Lamar to Perform at Miami's Art Basel With Visual Artist Shantell Martin for American Express' 'Art Meets Music' Campaign

Billboard

American Express has called on rapper Kendrick Lamar and international visual artist Shantell Martin to deliver a memorable experience at this year's Art Basel in Miami. 

The Compton native will perform a handful of songs with Martin conducting a live sketch during his set, an exclusive event for all card members in the South Florida area as part of AMEX's Music Meets Art campaign. 

The performance will take place Dec. 1 at the Faena Dome in South Beach Miami, where all of Martin's work will be projected throughout the dome. This also marks Lamar's second partnership with AMEX after he previously teamed up with basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal for their "Small Business Saturday" spot, which aired earlier this month. 


The event comes after a banner year for Lamar, who secured the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 in March with his surprise project Untitled, Unmastered. 

Tickets retailing for $65 each will go on sale today (Nov. 28) at 12 p.m. ET online only for American Express cardholders via Ticketmaster.com.
