Last summer Kendrick Lamar, a Dr. Dre protégé on the cusp of breaking big, drew rave reviews for his no-holds-barred performance at Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival. Now, thanks to last year's good kid, m.A.A.d City, his raw, universally acclaimed debut album, the Compton-bred MC returns to the Windy City a bona fide star. The 26-year-old Lamar, who in the past year has hopped on tracks with everyone from 50 Cent to Robin Thicke and the Lonely Island, is focused on the present: his second full-length, he says, will dish on his lavish new lifestyle – "being in the club, having super nice things, but in a relatable way."
