Metro USA (Boston) - - WKND -

5Grammy Award-win­ning rap­per Ken­drick La­mar is back in Bos­ton this week­end for a Satur­day night show with Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. at the TD Gar­den. Fresh off the re­lease of his lat­est chart-top­ping al­bum “Damn,” K. Dot is at the top of his game right now, so ex­pect lo­cal hip-hop fans to come out in force.

Ken­drick La­mar’s ca­reer is such a be­he­moth at this point that it’s not sur­pris­ing he gave his lat­est record the el­e­gant ti­tle “Damn.” He’s that rare artist who achieves ma­jor­league suc­cess while re­tain­ing his “so­cially con­scious” cred. Maybe it’s his sheer charisma—many would call him the best rap­per in the game right now—but it’s a good sign re­gard­less.

July 22, 7:30 p.m., TD Gar­den, 100 Leg­ends Way, $114-$600, tick­et­mas­
