Live: Kendrick Lamar at Revolution, October 28

Kendrick Lamar 

Revolution, Fort Lauderdale

Better Than: White girls from Oakland yelling "Gucci Gucci."

Judging by the crowd screaming "Kendrick Lamar" ten minutes before he stepped onstage as if they were calling for an encore, the up-and-coming California native is no longer a secret. The Compton MC, who has already received co-signs from fellow Westsiders the Game, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre, eased his way to the center of the stage to introduce himself and his hood by reciting, "Let bygones by bygones, but where I'm from, we buy guns and more guns to give to the young" from the Overdose mixtape introduction "The Heart Pt. 2."
