2012 was a banner year for Kendrick Lamar. The Compton native surpassed expectations for his major label debut record good kid, m.A.A.d. city, and released one of the most captivating albums of the year, in any genre.
Kendrick ended the year near the top of every “best of…” list and Top Dog Entertainment and The Black Hippy crew seems poised for a huge 2013.
That’s why this footage of Kendrick and TDE ripping through tracks from 2012’s biggest rap record, at the Santa Ana Observatory for New Year’s Eve, is such a vibrant celebration. Join the revelry and watch the audience go word-for-word with Lamar during “Money Trees” and “m.A.A.d city”. It’s a celebration, ya bish.
