Kendrick Lamar just added his name to the Notorious B.I.G. fan club roster.

The critically acclaimed rapper appeared as a guest on Funkmaster Flex’s New York radio show last night, and took the opportunity to freestyle over the beat from Biggie’s track “Who Shot Ya?”¬† (the classic track that originally appeared on the late icon’s debut album Ready to Die).

Lamar’s mercurial flow, laden with references to his childhood and urban realities, displays a sense of fatalism on lines like “Any moment you could lose yo’ life/So kiss yo’ kids or hug yo’ wife,” as well some self-aware braggadocio: “I got good hair /Knowin’ damn well there’s chemicals there.”

Lamar’s major-label debut, g.o.o.d. kid, m.A.A.d. city, is set for an Oct. 22 release.
