Kendrick Lamar at the Palace, Melbourne

"Kendrick have a dreaaam!". On a hot night in Melbourne, lovers of hip hop gathered at the Palace theater to see the newly anointed King of West Coast rap, Kendrick Lamar. And lemme tell ya, he did not disappoint.

When 'internet famous' acts come to our shores it's a pretty safe bet that they won't meet your expectations. After months of reading about their talent, listening to carefully curated (and usually, short) mixtapes and following their witty quips on Twitter, when you finally see them in the flesh they often don't match up to the Pitchfork perfect image. However Lamar definitely lives up to the buzz, with his songs from good kid, m.A.A.d city even more impressive IRL. Only live can you really appreciate his actual skill, the speed at which he rhymes is kind of lost when you listen to him through your headphones.

Everyone bounced to 'Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe', when mental to 'Backstreet Freestyle' and 'Money Trees' proved to be the highlight of the night. But the coolest thing about the night was how much material he played from Section.80. Dude still remembers where he came from, and there's something refreshing about that.
