Hugely acclaimed rapper, Compton born and bred Kendrick Lamar brings his Good Kid, m.A.A.d City album tour to Manchester. Lamar’s self aware wordplay and catchy hooks saw last year’s album/mixtape Section 80 released to relentless and deserved praise, making this one of the hottest tickets in the city – as its sold out status would suggest. With a list of supporters and collaborators reading like a who’s who/crazy rich (Rick Ross, Dre, Busta, Pharell, Game, Lil Wayne) in the rap world, this is likely to be your last chance to see this rapidly rising talent in such an atmospheric venue. Listen to Cartoon and Cereal.

Thu 17 Jan, HMV Ritz, Whitworth Street West, M1 5NQ. Tel: 0161 236 3234, 7pm-11.30pm, sold out,
