KENDRICK LAMAR LIGHTS UP THE GARDEN
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.
