Multi-platinum-selling singer Lady Gaga finally got a chance to meet up with Dr. Dre protégé Kendrick Lamar over the weekend at the Chicago Pitchfork Music Festival.
According to reports and a couple photos currently circulating online, the Interscope artists chopped it up Sunday (July 15) afternoon.
Kendrick Lamar's biggest fan comes from an unlikely source. Last week, the Twittersphere was buzzing when Lady Gaga tweeted she was a fan of Lamar's music. Returning from overseas, the pop star made an unexpected visit to watch her fellow Interscope Records labelmate and new friend during Day 3 of the Pitchfork Music Festival at Chicago's Union Park on Sunday afternoon.

"@kendricklamar What a sweetie calling me this morning to see how I'm doin. See you soon. love from across the pond. #Rigamortis," she tweeted July 4th.
"I hope so. he and his lyrics are the sh*t. RT @MixedHippy @kendricklamar @ladygaga are all of your fans gonna jump on him" (Lady Gaga's Twitter)
Lamar is staying busy music-making these days and is reportedly working alongside Roc Nation rapper J. Cole on a joint project.
"Kendrick, that's definitely gonna happen. I don't have a timeline but you know if he lands here at 12:00 tonight, we get in for two days, he'll fly out, we'll do that again when we can," Cole said in an interview with DJ Drama. "He's working on his album. First we gotta make the music," said J. Cole. "I would shoot for an album. If we put it out for free then I guess that's just the day and age we live in, but I'm not making it like a mixtape." (Drama Like The DJ)
Recently, Cole and Lamar heated up the Internet by dropping some in-studio shots of themselves.
