Recap: Kendrick Lamar Opens Hard Rock In Las Vegas


/ October 22, 2012

Let’s face it, overly dedicated fans were anticipating Kendrick Lamar’s arrival to Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Cafe. The Top Dawg Entertainment champion lyricist hit the strip alongside cohorts Jay Rock and Ab-Soul to headline BET’s Music Matters Tour. The packed venue found eager audiophiles ready to get turnt up to the max which quickly became an all-out sing-along instead of a mildly mannered concert.

Rather than give audiences a recycled performance, the TDE triple-threat offered a twist that sometimes even upended your standard concert fare. The sold-out Hard Rock Cafe couldn’t contain the explosive ammunition that hit the stage last Friday, so we managed to capture the night’s most boisterous moments for you to check out in our gallery below.

Even though good kid, m.A.A.d city leaked days before its official release that should not stop you from copping K. Dot’s critically acclaimed debut, in stores today.
