Kendrick Lamar, a 23 year old rapper from Compton, is an artist that, if you have not heard of him, must be listened to. His incredible, metaphoric lyricism and unique choked-up sound has jump started this rapper’s career, and will only keep pushing him forward.
Lamar’s early life in Compton was far from easy but he lived a good life. He had good grades in school and his parents taught him life lessons that he applies to his career, according to the Kendrick Lamar fansite.
At age 16, Lamar got his chance with DudeDawg, chief financial officer of Top Dawg Entertainment.
Lamar has recently performed in Dallas and San Francisco.
His inspiration, according to the fansite, is Tupac whom he often compares himself.
