Print More

Kendrick Lamar is a young rapper from Compton who is intent on bringing his poetic style to the rap scene. The talented newcomer is a protégé to one of the masters of rap, Dr.  Dre. Alongside the reknowned superproducer, Lamar performed “The Recipe” — his hit single with a signature Dre beat — at Coachella last year. While Lamar’s first full length album Section 80 was well-received (after Dre put his stamp of approval on it), Lamar only found nationwide success after “HiiiPoWeR” became a radio hit.
