King Kendrick

Kendrick Lamar kept his throne mighty warm last night at the Oracle Arena, in Oakland, Ca. kendrick-lamar-2013

Kendrick Lamar is the opening act for Kanye West, according to the Yeezus tour. According to me, King Kendrick was the headliner last night in Oakland.

Getting to the arena a tad bit late, I rushed over to my seat, to find the handsomely dressed K.Dot on stage. Wearing all black (from the hoody to the black Timberland boots), with a flannel vest to keep him in style, he had me on my feet for the full 45-minutes or so he was on stage. He takes the audience on a tour through C.O.M.P.T.O.N. with the video monitors going while he performs banger after banger off his debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city.

Critics say Kendrick is a lackluster performer, but last night he was jumping jubilantly around the stage, and there was no way you couldn’t feel the energy pulsating through the whole arena. He even paid homage to 2Pac with a little “Hail Mary” chorus, representing Cali to the fullest. He even had something to say to the critics, “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”. The vibe was set, and everyone was chanting his name as he exited stage right. 

“Kendrick, Kendrick, Kendrick.” We wanted more.
