Kendrick Lamar seems an odd candidate for the mantle of hip-hop's latest champion: His thin voice lacks the gravitas of Jay-Z or Kanye, and his unassuming appearance won't remind anyone of Andre 3000. But he elbowed his way into such hallowed company with last year's Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, a simmering document of creative ambition belied by his unhurried delivery. On Thurs., June 20, Lamar performs alongside his fellow Black Hippy collaborators. Sold out
