Hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar brought his tour to Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Wednesday night, and it was a sold-out concert.

Hailed as a rap genius of his generation, Lamar’s laid-back vibe had the crowd singing along throughout the warm evening. His setlist included “Money Trees,” “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and “Don’t Kill My Vibe.”

Ab-Soul and Jay Rock served as opening acts. Check out five thoughts from the show written by Erin Ryan of Las Vegas Weekly, and thanks to Erik Kabik of Retna for his photo gallery.
