I’ve been told by several people that Kendrick Lamar is one rapper that I need to see in concert. Luckily, Bumbershoot gave me that opportunity this past summer and while I don’t typically listen to Kendrick’s material, I remember once upon a time when I battled another university in Seattle to book him for a music festival. At the time he was very up-and-coming and today’s he’s on the cover of GQ. These days, I’m listening to a different genre of music, but I was very impressed with the way that he commands a crowd. I’ve never seen such rowdy fans, but I suppose that just means he’s doing his job. Also, he cleans up nicely.
