Kendrick Lamar fans know his songs so well he just let the crowd rap 'Humble' a cappella and watched in awe

Kendrick Lamar was visibly moved during the first show of his DAMN. tour in Phoenix, Arizona this week, when the crowd took over his performance of 'Humble', rapping the lines for him.

K-Dot offered up the line: "My left stroke just went viral" to the audience and they ran with it, finishing off the verse and chorus a cappella as Kendrick just smiled and nodded.

He was left speechless for nearly three minutes, before telling the crowd: "Man, I appreciate y'all so motherfuckin' much."

He eventually launched back into the song - I only wish he'd let the crowd take the ball again, Kendrick fans being such passionate scholars I'm sure they could have spit his whole set from memory.

Be humble. Be humbled.
