About Kendrick Lamar
Birthdate: June 17, 1987
Birthplace: Compton, California, U.S.
Occupation: rapper, producer, and songwriter
Kendrick Lamar was born on June 17, 1987, in Compton, California. As a kid, he was a model student and eventually got interested in creating rhymes. Before we all knew him as “Kendrick Lamar, one of the greatest rappers of this generation”, he went by the stage name “K-dot”.
After releasing a mixtape in 2004, Kendrick started to receive a lot of attention and was soon signed to “Top Dawg Entertainment”. He collaborated with various rappers for a few years before he dropped the name “K-dot” and decided to go by “Kendrick Lamar” in 2009. In 2010, he caught the eye of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg with his song “Ignorance is Bliss”. This resulted in the two icons wanting to work with the up-and-coming rapper on Dr.Dre’s album “Detox”.
By 2012, Kendrick released the album “good kid, m.A.A.d city”, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. The following year, he became a sought-after musical guest on shows like “Saturday Night Live” and the “Late Show with David Letterman”. This year also saw Kendrick lending his vocals to Eminem’s album “The Marshal Mathers LP 2.” 2013 only became more extraordinary for the artist as he was named “Rapper of the Year” by GQ.
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards were dominated by Kendrick after he was nominated for a total of seven awards including “Album of the Year” and “Best New Artist”. The year after, at the 2015 Grammys, Kendrick finally took home two awards for the song “i”: “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song”.
Kendrick’s next album “To Pimp a Butterfly” shot him to stardom even further when it debuted at #1 on the US Billboard 200 in 2015. This also went on to win a Grammy for “Best Rap Album”. Kendrick was soon being dubbed “the most talented rapper of his generation”.
His collaboration with Taylor Swift on the song “Bad Blood” in 2015 amplified his name even more in pop culture. The song and epic video were a massive hit and earned them a Grammy for “Best Music Video” and an MTV Video Music Award for “Video of the Year”.
The rapper took his producing skill to greater heights when he worked on 14 songs for the soundtrack of the 2018 Marvel film “Black Panther”. One track from the album called “All the Stars” was even nominated for “Best Original Song” at the Academy Awards.
In 2018, Kendrick became the brightest shining star at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Aside from opening the ceremony with a 6-piece medley, he also took home 5 awards that night. Among these were “Best Rap Album” for “Damn” and “Best Music Video” for “Humble”. The rapper also made history in 2018 when he became the first non-classical artist to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.
All three of Kendrick’s latest albums were included in Rolling Stone’s 2018 list of “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. The award-winning rapper continues to shatter records with his unique artistry and has even changed Pulitzer Prize history. There’s no doubt about it that he really is one of the greatest rappers the world has ever seen.
