MITMondays: The Damn Tour Recap

Last week Kendrick Lamar’s D.A.M.N. Tour rolled through D.C. at the Verizon center. The tour included D.R.A.M. and Travis Scott. Unfortunately La Flame was unable to perform due to some off stage issues. Even though we didn’t get to experience the Rodeo it was still a good show. For those who know me personally, you know how long I’ve waited to see Cornrow Kenny and to finally see him was definitely a highlight of my concert experiences. With that being said, here’s why the DAMN Tour was everything I expected to be and more.

Over the years we have seen the growth of Kendrick Lamar from Kdot to Cornrow Kenny and now Kung Fu Kenny....

Sidebar: I need to touch on D.R.A.M. Big Baby D.R.A.M. is more than just the Cha Cha and Broccoli. He is really a truly talented singer whose singing ability is often overlooked. When he end with singing the hook to broccoli before turning it up a notch, it was pretty dope.

...back to King Fu Kenny...

Before coming out Kendrick took us to Shaolin with a monologue from a Zen master giving Kendrick some knowledge. Shortly after the words from Shaolin the Fox News clip begins to play. While that is going on Kung Fu Kenny appears dressed similar to Bruce Lee in "Game of Death”, seamlessly transitioning into DNA. One thing that really stood out to me was how Kung Fu Kenny used ninjas essentially as props and interacting with them as well. It was dope seeing him literally dodging the sword while rapping and not missing a beat. Throughout the night Kendrick performed a medley of songs from Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, To Pimp a Butterfly, Untitled Unmastered and of course D.A.M.N. It was amazing seeing songs that turned me into a Kendrick fan performed live. When he did Money Trees you could just feel the shift of the energy and I encourage everyone to see him perform M.A.A.D. City at least once, it is truly a life changing experience. Once that was over he performed Alright which happens to be my favorite Kendrick song. Watching your favorite artist perform your favorite song by them is just an unbelievable feeling that’s almost impossible to describe. As his time was coming to an end, he performed Humble. In fact, the crowd performed humble, word for word. After he left the stage the crowd was calling for an encore and he came back out and did God.

The D.A.M.N. tour was everything I expected it to be and more. Being able to see your favorite artist kill a stage is something that will live with you forever. With that being said I’ll never forget the night I saw Kung Fu Kenny take us on a journey through Shaolin. As Always…
