Is a Kendrick Lamar show the hottest ticket in rap right now?
A$AP Rocky and Lil Wayne were the competing headliners at Rolling Loud on Friday night. On Saturday, for night 2 of the star-studded Miami rap festival, attendees had to choose between Kendrick Lamar and Young Thug. A tough decision, no doubt, but upon the release of his incredible new album, DAMN., I think you'd be mad to pass up a chance to witness King Kenny in his prime.
Kendrick began his set with the furious Mike Will-produced DAMN. track, "DNA," which recently received a Don Cheadle-starring music video. He would end the show with DAMN.'s lead single, "Humble," which is also produced by Mike. That one is clearly going to be a festival favorite all summer.
K-Dot also performed "King Kunta" and "Alright" -- favorites from 2015's To Pimp a Butterfly -- as well as classic songs from 2012's good kid, m.A.A.d city, such as "Backseat Freestyle" and "Money Trees." Fans also got to see him perform a couple of his beloved guest verses, as he rapped his parts from ScHoolboy Q's "Collard Greens" and Travis Scott's "Goosebumps."
