Kendrick Lamar - TDE Presents: 1st Annual Kunta's Groove Sessions 

When: Wed., Nov. 4, 7 p.m. 2015
The past three years have seen the ascension of Kendrick Lamar from K.Dot the mixtape phenom to Kendrick Lamar the world renowned emcee. In 2011, the Compton-based rapper released Section.80 which featured songs like "Hiii-Power" and "The Spiteful Chant," but it was 2012's good kid, m.A.A.d city that would send Lamar into rarefied air amongst the elite in hip-hop. The album spawned several hit singles including "Swimming Pools (Drank)," "Poetic Justice" and "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe." Earlier this year, Lamar's third album, To Pimp a Butterfly, was released to the iTunes Store and Spotify eight days ahead of schedule. It would eventually go on to break the record for single day album streaming with 9.6 million listens. Singles from the album have included the critically acclaimed "i," "These Walls","The Blacker the Berry" and "King Kunta," but it is his song "Alright" that has become the rallying cry for a generation that is hurting and growing increasingly fed up with the status quo. On the heels of a performance with the National Symphony Orchestra, Lamar is taking his show on the road with a set of dates being labeled as "King Kunta's Groove Sessions" and focusing on smaller venues instead of arenas. If his high energy performances of the past are any indication of what to expect, then the show will indeed be "Alright." (Emanuel Wallace)
