For the Second Time, Future Fans Clear Out Of Arena Before Kendrick Lamar Performs

By HHL Editors

Last Thursday (Oct. 22), Future and Kendrick Lamar played Power 105.1's annual Powerhouse concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Fetty Wap, Big Sean, Meek Mill and others were also on the bill.

Future's set ended around midnight, with only Kendrick Lamar to follow. According to those at the show, about half the crowd left when Future finished.

On Sunday, both Future and Lamar both jumped to Chicago for the WGCI Big Jam. Again, K.Dot followed Future. And, again, a good chunk of the crowd went home when Future was finished.

In this case, Future's set was said to have ended around 10. So it wasn't as much as a "school night" issue as it was in Brooklyn.

Obviously, Lamar is big star. To Pimp A Butterfly sold considerably more first week copies (350,000) than Future's Dirty Sprite 2 (145,000), and almost as many as the Drake-Future joint What A Time To Be Alive (375,000.)

But it seems like Future's the guy folks are shelling out bigger bucks for a ticket to go see.

Is this a trap vs. "conscious" thing?

(Anyone who was at either show, please weigh in.)
