Dom Kennedy Performs "Grind'n" LIVE In ATL!!

Call me ignorant, but I didn't know Dom Kennedy had just a big of a following as Kendrick Lamar. The crowd was spitting all of Dom's songs word for word during his set at Atlanta's Back In Session concert, and he had everyone who wasn't too familiar rocking anyway. 

Check out his performance of From The Westside, With Love track, "Grind'n," below. I apologize for the video quality. I was wildin' in the crowd and filming at the same time!

CyHi The Prynce Brings Out Pill & 2Chainz in ATL!

CyHi The Prynce also amazed everyone during his set at Atlanta's Back In Session concert tonight.  Even those there who weren't too familiar with him were able to see his love for his craft and recognize the complexity and cleverness of his lyrics.

G.O.O.D. Music's prince also surprised the crowd by bringing out both MMG representative Pill and former boob man, 2 Chainz.  I captured some video footage of it all even though I was too busy losing my voice and bouncing along.

Watch below as CyHi performs "Emotional" with 2 Chainz, and hit the jump to see more performances from CyHi & company!

Kendrick Lamar Performs "F**k Your Ethnicity" Live In ATL

I just got home from one of the most amazing shows in my life-- Kendrick Lamar, CyHi The Prynce, Dom Kennedy, Schoolboy Q, Pill, and 2 Chainz all in one night!! I tried my best to get some footage although I found my 5'1'' frame struggling to get positioning at Atlanta's Back In Session concert.

Kendrick Lamar, the headliner and my personal favorite rapper, completely killed it and I was able to catch some VERY amateur footage of him opening the show with the Section.80 introductory track, "F**k Your Ethnicity." Looking into the crowd, I realized that Kendrick Lamar attracted an extremely diverse fan base and it was a beautiful sight to behold.

Hit the jump to see a photo of Kendrick and Schoolboy Q performing!
