Kendrick Lamar: Grammy Award-winning rap superstar
Having learnt his trade among some of hip-hop's most illustrious names, Californian rapper Kendrick Lamar is now one of the most successful modern artists in his own right. Receiving widespread acclaim for his latest album DAMN, all 14 tracks hit US Billboard Hot 100 chart; including the single "Humble" which became his first number one. His distinctive vocals and non-west coast style have helped him carve a unique niche in the rap and hip-hop music industry, earning the seven-time Grammy Award winning rapper a loyal following around the world.
After crossing the Atlantic for the European leg of his DAMN tour in early-2018 (along with British star James Blake as his support act) Kendrick spent much of this year touring North America, before heading back to the UK to headline a series of summer festivals, including Leeds and Reading and Glasgow Summer Sessions.

The MC's musical grounding started when at 16 he released his first mixtape under the name K-Dot. Quickly snapped up by indie label Top Dawg Entertainment, he released a follow-up, Training Day and supported rapper Game on tour. In 2010 Lamar supported Tech N9ne and Jay Rock on tour and released Overly Dedicated, another highly acclaimed mixtape, which attracted further praise and attention within the industry. His debut album, Section.80, was well-received on its release in 2011, but proved to be little more than a taster for the runaway success of second LP.
In 2012 came Good Kid, M.A.A.D city, which proves Lamar's impressive writing ability along with an incredible production with songs "Money Trees" and "Real". He may have only released his debut LP in 2012, but this Compton kid's vocals will already be familiar to legions of hip-hop fans. Having worked with the likes of Jay-Z and Lil Wayne and appeared as a featured artist on singles by the likes of A$AP Rocky, Birdman and Talib Kweli, his fingerprints are already all over the charts.
Three years later, 2015 saw the release of Kendrick's third studio album To Pimp A Butterfly. It was considered one of the best albums of the year with tracks "King Kunta" and "Hood Politics" which once again proved his ability to create soulful and jazzy music that still maintains its hip-hop roots and puts the listener through many emotions. His latest album DAMN, very possibly what you would say when you first listen to it, provides a new energy and feel to hip-hop, with tracks "Humble" and "Loyalty" which have insightful lyrics and a beautiful production.
Set apart from peers such as Childish Gambino and others by his honest lyrical take on the world around him, Lamar's avoidance of stereotypical hip-hop subjects has earned him widespread critical acclaim. Fans are flocking to his shows and Kendrick Lamar tickets are soaring in popularity.
