Kendrick Lamar @ Allphones Arena

I thought this could be good. I just didn't think it would be THIS good. Great, actually. Kendrick Lamar gave a supremely great performance at Allphones Arena on Wednesday night. He commanded and gripped 18000 fervent fans in a display of impeccable talent. Lamar has risen to the top of his game in the last couple of years, releasing two albums that have received massive critical acclaim. But on top of this he is a supreme performer. But not flashy or relying on tricks. He bares his soul on stage. He projects himself into the hearts and minds of his fans. He is inclusive, inspiring and distinctly human.

Kendrick Lamar arrives on stage and slowly but surely waits for the audience to reach fever pitch. He waits and waits, anticipation building. Then he intonates. THIS. DICK. AIN'T. FREE. His loving fans were hooked. Smitten. Taken by his charisma and his humanity. Soon we were all standing. Dancing, smiling, singing. It's quite a sight to see so many people in unison. Beating hearts all at once. 'm.A.A.d city' absolutely slayed. 'King Kunta' had everyone jumping. Hell, I could mention basically all the songs and how they captured us. But ultimately this was all about Kendrick. An electric, fiercely intelligent performer at the peak of his powers.It is a glorious sight indeed.
