Before we get into any music news or celebrity happenings, please take my words of advice…
BACK UP YOUR CELL PHONE!
I’ve been without a phone for the past week – I have a new one now (thanks, mom!) – but not one picture of the past four years of my life in California is on there. That was over 5,000 pictures and more than 300 videos. Do you know how many concerts, memories, celebs, that were documented?! Oh well. I just keep telling myself there are way worse things that could happen (which there definitely are) and now I’ll just have to do more epic shit. Excuse my French, but it’s true.
On to the Weekly Wrap-Up…

Watch the quite heartbreaking but powerful video below.
Kendrick Lamar Performs With National Symphony Orchestra at Kennedy Center
How dope is this! Kendrick Lamar, just a young boy from Compton, performed at the Kennedy Center with the National Symphony Orchestra. This is so great. He performed songs off of To Pimp a Butterfly on Tuesday during this monumental event.
Thanks to Peter Hutchins for catching this footage! Below is K. Dot’s performance of ‘Alright.’

Speaking of Drake, his birthday is tomorrow! Wahoo! And happy birthday to Derek and belated birthday to Maria. 🙂
Have a great Friday, yinz!
