We have a feeling gems like this are going to be popping up for a long time.

It's been nearly two weeks since Prince was found dead in his Minnesota recording studio, and secret moments from his life are still just surfacing for the first time.

For instance, did you know that the 57-year-old musician once had an underground show with Kendrick Lamar at his Paisley Park estate two years before his death?!

Apparently, the two Grammy winners — who interestingly enough each have seven gramophones to their name — performed What's My Name for a crowd of superfans back in 2014, and the video finally found its way online this week!

They sound as AH-Mazing as you'd expect, but the real treat is just getting to see Prince like we've literally never seen him before.

Rest in peace, sweet Prince.

Ch-ch-check out Prince and Kendrick's live rendition of What's My Name (below)!!!

Someone's got a bone to pick with Kendrick Lamar!

The Grammy-winner has cranked out a lot of hits over the past few years, but one of his earlier tracks is getting the rapper into a bit of legal trouble!

According to TMZ, K.Dot is being sued for sampling a Bill Withers song in his 2009 track without permission.

The lawsuit was issued by Mattie Music Group, a music company that claims it owns the rights to the 1975 song Don't You Want To Stay.

The company alleges that Kendrick's song I Do This — featured on his self titled EP — is a complete replica of Withers' love song.

Claiming that the King Kunta performer's track "consists of nothing more than new rap and hip hop lyrics set to the existing music of Don't You Want To Stay," Mattie Music is suing for damages and wants the hitmaker to stop using the song.

Though we still have to see how this pans out in court, we're sure Lamar would be fine with scratching an old track from his repertoire.
