Kendrick Lamar Summerfest 2015 | Schoolboy Q Opening Act

Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick Lamar will perform at Summerfest in 2015. The show is set for July 1, and Schoolboy Q will be the opening act. Lamar is supporting his "To Pimp a Butterfly" disk that came out just ten days ago. Lamar follows in the footsteps of rap giants like The Notorious B.I.G, and Eminem. He represents a revival of what some would say is long overdue. While he may be very complimentary towards the current stars like Kanye West, their styles couldn't be more different.

Good Kid m.A.A.d City is the title of Lamar's debut album. It covers the time of Lamar's life that was most certainly influential. This album may have been put together in multiple studios across California, but it is certainly "straight out of Compton," where Lamar spent his formative years.  Gone are the cliche hip-hop styling of today.

Schoolboy Q is also an artist that comes from South Central L.A. It's been seven years since his first release. His first effort was titled "ScHoolboy Turned Hustla." From there, he released two more albums, his latest being "Habits & Contradictions."
