By the time he was 16, Kendrick Lamar had a record deal with Top Dawg Entertainment on the strength of his debut mixtape. Since then, the hip-hop artist from Compton has worked with stars in the form of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Talib Kweli, and Lady Gaga, as well as released a collection of singles and his first studio album, Section.80, to critical acclaim. During his live performances, Lamar transfixes the crowd with his palpable confidence and swagger. Whether traversing the stage or materializing in the sound booth, he incites the audience to sing and rap along to hits such as “Swimming Pool (Drank),” a hypnotic piece on the seductive, sometimes dangerous nature of alcohol that showcases his rapid-fire lyrical style.
Crowd members get to groove amid the historic confines of the Congress Theater. A former movie palace built in 1927, the cavernous venue is registered as a Chicago Landmark, sheltering fans under an intricate, domed ceiling perfect for jetpack escapes when the party gets too crowded.
