Kendrick Lamar is hip hop’s golden boy for the moment, and as such, landed a spot on “Saturday Night Live”. It’s all thanks to his album, “good kid, m.A.A.d city,” which appeared at the top of many “Best of 2012″ album lists.
If you ever wanted Lamar to give you tips on a 401k alongside the Lonely Island Crew and Mr. Maroon 5 (Adam Levine), you’re in luck. The pride of Compton also performed “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and the emotive, “Poetic Justice.” Kendrick Lamar will be performing at the 2013 SnowBall Music Festival lineup in Winter Park.
