The summer provides students with endless activities to indulge them. Some activities that students love are musical festivals.

“I love going to them to experience the music and see them actually sing it,” junior Jake Lavin said.

Over the summer, Kendrick Lamar came to town for his world famous Damn Tour and people of all ages came to see him at The United Center. Kendrick has a large place in students hearts.

“He is one of my favorite lyricists, he has good messages behind his lyrics,” junior Nick Miklautsch said

Since his start in 2003, Lamar has released four eps and four full-length albums. With his most recent album, “Damn,” and its tour, Lamar played most of his new songs and his greatest hits, not only did he sing, he put on a fantastic performance.

“It was a performance rather than a concert. He had little karate skits going on and that was so sick. That matched with the music” Lavin said.

“He had almost like a short movie of him developing into the goat of rappers. He had short intermission periods” Miklautsch said.

The Damn Tour had 36 North American dates and has just extended it’s European dates. Kendrick Lamar has been in the music scene for a long time now and at this rate, students don’t think anything will stop him.

“He is in the top five for greatest music artists of all time,” Lavin said.
