We wanted to do something ambitious and unheard of in our neck of the woods, so we brought independent hip-hop talent Kendrick Lamar to DC's 9:30 Club, one of the most renowned venues in the nation. With two weeks of promo, we were able to sell out the 1200 person venue and leave a lasting impact on the entire city. August 12, 2011 was an incredibly historic night in our eyes.
The DC area is on the cusp of a cultural explosion, and things like this are bringing that bad boy one step closer to blowing up. We'll be doing our part to ensure that it happens.
Shout out to the entire Top Dawg Entertainment team for making this all happen, as well as the 1st Impressions Studio team for documenting epicness in video form.
