Kendrick Lamar brought the Damn Tour to the Staples Center in Los Angeles Wednesday night, closing out a three-night run at the massive venue with some help from the Top Dawg Entertainment family. Schoolboy Q, SZA, and Jay Rock all stopped by for mini-performances of some of their most beloved tracks.
Schoolboy Q got damn near everyone in the 21,000-capacity venue on their feet for his 2016 hit "That Part." Even without Kanye West popping up for his highly quotable verse, this track is always a surefire energizer in the arena setting:
SZA hit the stage for "Love Galore," the latest single from her debut album Ctrl:
Lamar brought out Jay Rock for a performance of "Money Trees," off Lamar's major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city:
