When last seen, at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Union Park last year, Kendrick Lamar was still a relative unknown except to hip-hop connoisseurs. His set came off as hazy and introspective, with a curious Lady Gaga hanging on every word from the wings. But now he emerges with newfound swagger — even without Gaga in the house — smoke machines at his feet and a full band at his back. His 2012 album, “good kid, m.A.A.d. city,” puts a new and brilliantly introspective take on West Coast gangsta rap, a look at its tropes and pressures from the inside out. So even as he leads the crowd in some explicit choruses, he throws out questions and lays out his conflicts in the verses. “This will be on the Internet,” he announces. Ya think? The audience cheers him like a rock star, even when he stands on stage with arms folded. But he doesn’t just bask in the glow. He tries to put it in context, much in the way his rhymes try to make sense of hip-hop and the culture that birthed it. “You can’t classify what we got going on,” he says to the fans. “This is life.” [Chicago Tribune]

Lollapalooza 2013 continued yesterday (8/3) in Chicago’s Grant Park, with nicer weather than day 1, and sets from eight stages worth of artists, including The Postal Service, Kendrick Lamar, Haim, Foals, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Local Natives and more. Pictures of those (and other) artists are in this post, and we’ve got a second set of Saturday pics HERE on the way with more artists. But not any of Death Grips.

We at BrooklynVegan are also at the festival, hosting a portion of the Soundwave Tent.

The festival wraps up today (8/4) (check out our Sunday preview) with sets from Cat Power, Phoenix, The Cure, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Alt-J, Baroness, Angel Haze, and more. If you’re not at the festival, you can stream it live at Lollapalooza.com.

Update: Day 3 pics (part 1) and day 3 pics (part 2) are up now too.
