Kendrick Lamar Music Matters Tour Toronto 2012

FRESH OFF the camera, our homie #ShotbyDrew got these amazing pictures out to me very quickly! I wasn't personally able to attend but I heard Drake came out as the suprise guest and performed HYFR. For some reason Ab-Soul and Jay Rock weren't there maybe because of border troubles but the homie Rich Kidd opened up amongst other acts. Full review of the Kendrick Lamar show is coming very soon for now take a look at these beautiful pictures and hey check out our Kendrick Lamar interview if you haven't yet!
