Compton’s own Kendrick Lamar had the honor of closing out this year’s Cali Christmas at Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City last night. The 50-minute set was a memorable one as K-Dot ran through cuts off his critically-acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d city album. From “The Recipe” to “Bi**h, Dont Kill My Vibe,” Lamar had his hometown crowd at command all evening. Along with his TDE crew of Jay Rock (“Money Trees”), ScHoolboy Q (“Hands on the Wheel”), and Ab-Soul gracing the stage, the first big surprise came from J. Cole.
The frequent collaborators rocked out to Cole’s “Nobody’s Perfect,” before E-40 and Too $hort appeared for a medley of “Function” and “Bi**h.” Undoubtedly the loudest screams from Friday night were saved for a shocking cameo from Lil’ Wayne, who sprinted out covered in Trukfit to perform “No Worries.” With his TDE crew by his side, Kendrick closed out the night as the packed crowd sang his “Swimming Pools (Drank)” single.
