The grounds of Discovery Green in Downtown Houston shook as Kendrick Lamar took over the city.

All of the crowd at the jam-packed music festival went wild for Kendrick and his powerful performance.

Here’s 8 of the most electrifying moments about Kendrick Lamar’s show that kept Houston buzzing all weekend.


8. Kendrick started the show off debuting the first live performance of “Untitled 07 | Levitate” from his surprise untitled unmastered project.


7. Fan love was in full effect when Kendrick let two lucky Houstonians hop on stage to rap “m.A.A.d city.”


6. In an interview before the show, Kendrick talked about his drive in the studio, rates himself as a basketball player, & more.


5. His 72-minute set ranged from classics on good kid, m.A.A.d city to Section .80, and of course his newest LP untitled unmastered.


4. Houston showed so much love, as Kendrick Lamar is currently one of the best rappers in the game.


3. The live performance blended his flows of conscious rap with jazz vibes and a rock delivery.


2. K Dot literally shut the place down. Over three hours before Kendrick hit the stage, Discovery Green reached full capacity. Officials did however open and close doors several times before no one else was allowed back in.


1. In what may be one of the most epic Kendrick shows in Houston…the entire concert was for the FREE.
