Kendrick Lamar


Kendrick Lamar is my favorite rapper. A inspiration. People may say other wise, but his lines tell a story his story. Don’t you know ignorance is bliss??? Well my bliss is for the lines he spits. Something that you can connect to. His story is something that makes you think about, even though you can pull through the hardest of times, you can pull through it no matter what it is. I_KendrickLamar_Thumbnail

His new song i, speaks about love for yourself basically. Why wouldn’t someone have love for themselves? This song shows a new kind of love, a love for yourself and no one else. Like his song No make up. These two songs go hand in hand with a confidence of yourself. Everyone looks at rappers the same, their musics the same, their lines. But its not true at all. His lines are inspiration.


Why would you look at Kendrick Lamar as a bad icon? Sometimes you cant judge a book by its cover. Theres no need, you make it worse to meet better individuals in life. If we do is just judge, what is there? A LABEL? Or a person that gets no recognition or attention?


Kendrick Lamars story is very short i can say,

Kendrick Lamar was born in Compton, California, to parents from Chicago, Illinois.His birth name was given to him by his mother in honor of singer Eddie Kendricks. In 1995, at the age of eight, Lamar witnessed his idols Tupac Shakur and Dr. Dre, film the music video for their hit single “California Love”, which would later prove to be a very significant moment in Lamar’s life. As a teenager, Lamar attended Centennial High School in Compton, where he was a straight A student.


In 2003, at the age of sixteen, Lamar released his first full-length project, a mixtape titled Youngest Head Nigga in Charge (Hub City Threat: Minor of the Year), under the pseudonym K-Dot. The mixtape garnered enough local attention for Lamar to secure a recording contract with Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), a newly founded local indie record label, based in Carson, California. He began recording material with the label and subsequently released a twenty-six track mixtape two years later, titled Training Day (2005).Throughout 2006 and 2007, Lamar, alongside other up-and-coming West Coast rappers such as his TDE label-mate Jay Rock and Ya Boy, toured and opened for veteran West Coast rapper Game. Lamar, under his moniker K-Dot, was also featured on Game’s songs “The Cypha” and “Cali Niggaz”.In 2008, Lamar made a brief cameo appearance in the music video for his Top Dawg label-mate Jay Rock’s commercial debut single, “All My Life (In the Ghetto)”. More recognition came Lamar’s way after a video of a Charles Hamilton show surfaced, where Hamilton went in the crowd to battle fellow rappers in attendance. Lamar did not hesitate and began rapping a verse over the instrumental to Miilkbone’s “Keep It Real”, that would later appear on a track titled “West Coast Wu-Tang”. After receiving a co-sign from American hip hop superstar Lil Wayne, Lamar released his third mixtape in 2009, titled C4, heavily themed around Wayne’s Tha Carter III LP. Soon after, Lamar decided to drop K-Dot as his stage name and go by his birth name. He subsequently released a self-titled extended play (EP) in late 2009.


Also in 2009, Lamar formed Black Hippy, a supergroup with label-mates and fellow California-based rappers Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q.

Well thats the story of Kendrick Lamar
