Kendrick Lamar to Perform One (1) Show in 2021

Kendrick Lamar has booked his only performance of 2021 — but in news that’ll have you saying “damn,” the preeminent rapper won’t be bringing new music with him. Probably. Lamar will headline the 2021 Day N Vegas festival on November 12 in a set billed as “One Night in Vegas. From Section.80 to DAMN.,” named after his first and most recent albums. 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of Section.80; meanwhile, it’s been more than four years since Lamar released his last project, 2017’s DAMN., which became the first pop album to win the Pulitzer Prize for music. (In fact, the festival set will come over a year after Lamar’s last verse, on Busta Rhymes’s “Look Over Your Shoulder” in October 2020.) Fans, of course, have been anxious for new music — when label Top Dawg Entertainment teased a May announcement that ended up being rapper Isaiah Rashad’s comeback, many hoped for new Kung Fu Kenny. But maybe he’s just saving the new stuff for Coachella 2022? Regardless, you can catch the main himself in Vegas alongside an otherwise stacked lineup, including Travis Scott, Tyler, the Creator, DaBaby, YG, Lil Baby, Doja Cat, Saweetie, SZA, Lil Uzi Vert, and more.

Coachella promoters Goldenvoice debuted a new hip hop festival, Day N Vegas, in Las Vegas in 2019. They couldn't hold it last year because of COVID, but the festival is returning for 2021, on November 12-November 14 at Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Kendrick Lamar is headlining on Friday, and his set is being billed as his only performance of 2021, and called "One Night in Vegas, From Section.80 to DAMN." Travis Scott, who was forced to drop off the festival's 2019 edition, headlines Saturday, and Tyler, The Creator headlines Sunday.

Polo G Wants To Work With J. Cole And Kendrick Lamar, But Has One Condition Before He Does

Ever since debuting with Die A Legend in 2019, Chicago rapper Polo G has been pretty intentional about stating his goals and following through on them — many times within the titles of the projects he’s released. For instance, after stating he’d “die a legend” on his first project, he followed up by calling himself The Goat in 2020. Now, he’s days away from dropping Hall Of Fame, and you can’t say the young rising star doesn’t aim high.
