Kendrick Lamar

If, like us, you were bummed that Kendrick Lamar toured in support of his excellent good kid, m.A.A.d city before it actually came out, it probably came as a pleasant surprise when he was announced for this year's Governors Ball, which goes down in NYC this June. But if you don't wanna fork over the cash for a festival, would rather see him at his own show, or simply can't wait that long, you're in luck. Kendrick is on a European tour right now, and upon returning home he's got some US shows on his horizon including a NYC gig at Roseland Ballroom on February 26. Tickets for that show go on "Internet" presale today (1/7) at 10 AM with a general sale starting Friday (2/8) at noon. Anyone know the presale password? UPDATE: The PASSWORD is dazzle.

The NYC show is also part of Metro PCS's 5th anniversary of their "5 Boro Takeover Tour". To quote them, "We've got Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, T.I., Mavado featuring Konshens, and Alicia Keys with Miguel hitting up the boroughs, so stay tuned for more info! Want the first tickets? Stop by the Cipha Sounds live broadcast on Friday from 4-6pm at the Metro PCS on 162 Jamaica Ave in Queens."

I know BV makes some token efforts to showcase rap, but this is really garbage. And charging $72. Shame on anyone for funding this crap.

Posted by Anonymous | February 7, 2013 2:13 PM

The girl in the video is sexy.

If you think this song is actually GOOD lemme drop some knowledge on you guys. You have to listen to the whole album to understand that this song isn't meant to be taken seriously, the song before this one on the album is "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" and this song came after it to show he's just in a good hype mood and the song after Backseat Freestyle on the album is "The Art of Peer Pressure" which shows he is spitting stupid ignorant stuff just because he's with his friends and wants to seem cool and fit in.
