Kendrick Lamar is an American hip hop artist with a successful career.He became the first rapper in history to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Many musicians believe that Lamar is "The New King of the West Coast."As a child, he stuttered, so there were no thoughts of becoming a rapper. The boy was fond of basketball and dreamed of someday getting into the NBA.
Childhood and youth
The future rap artist was born in Compton (California), where his parents moved from Chicago (Illinois). This event took place on June 17, 1987. The boy got his name in honor of the vocalist of the band "The Tempation" Eddie Kendricks. When Kendrick grew up, he went to study at Centennial High School. By the way, the popular rapper Dr. Dre also studied at the same school at one time. Subsequently, it was his work that influenced the boy's future.
In 2003, the guy released his debut mixtape "Hubcity threat: Minor of the Year". Kendrick's first creative pseudonym is K-Dot (derived from the first and last name). A small company "Konkrete Jungle Muzik" volunteered to help with the distribution of Lamar's debut work. In 2007, K-Dot released a second compilation – "Training Day", named after the film of the same name. Two more years later, a third mixtape called "C4" is released. However, this disc was not particularly popular with listeners. Then the performer decides to carry out a kind of rebranding, resulting in "The Kendrick Lamar EP", released in December 2009.
Actually, the release of "The Kendrick Lamar EP" was the beginning of the artist's professional path. The success of the mini-album made the employees of the label "Top Dawg Entertainment" pay attention to Kendrick. The first project created by Lamar on TDE was the mixtape "Overly Dedicated", released on September 23, 2010. Individual tracks from this mixtape are heard on the tour that Lamar conducted with Tech N9ne and Jay Rock in 2010.
However, next year Kendrick terminates his contract with Top Dawg Entertainment and releases his full-fledged debut studio album "Section 80" on July 2. By this time Lamar had managed to collaborate with Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, The Game and Snoop Dogg, and XXL edition mentioned him among the promising newcomers of the year.
In 2012, Kendrick signed a new contract with Aftermath (a subsidiary of Inters cope). The rapper's second studio album, "Good Kid. M.A.A.D. City", is released on this label. He was a success and even received the title of platinum, and the video for the song "Swimming Pools" was played on all music TV channels. The tour, where "Good Kid. M.A.A.D. City" was presented, began immediately after Lamar's return from the "Drake" tour, in which Kendrick, 2 Chainz and ASAP Rocky were opening acts.
On March 15, 2015, the rapper released his long-awaited third album, called "To Pimp a Butterfly". This work by Kendrick was unanimously named the best album of the year by The Rolling Stones and The New York Times. In the same year, the 57th Grammy Awards ceremony took place, at which Lamar received 11 nominations. Only Michael Jackson received more than him at one time.
Also in 2015, the rapper starred in the video of Taylor Swift, with whom they recorded a joint composition "Bad Blood", and in the feature film "Straight from Compton" (in the Russian-speaking environment it was called "The Voice of the Streets"), dedicated to the legendary group "N.W.A".

The leader of the charts and charts was the track "Humble", for which a video was released on March 30, 2017, which is the quintessence of the album.At the beginning of 2018, at the Grammy Awards ceremony, "DAMN" was recognized as the best rap album
The musician does not like to advertise his personal life, but still occasionally he appeared in public with a girl. Later, the media found out that her name was Whitney Alford.In 2015, the rapper announced their engagement.At the same time, he said that he studied at the same school with Whitney. Kendrick claims that Alford has been with him "from the very beginning." And she gives him every support, without a girl he would have given up long ago. There is a stereotype that musicians performing music in this genre are rather frivolous personalities. Hundreds of female fans are constantly circling around them, and some rappers' life companions change almost every month. But Lamar is not like that. He is strikingly indifferent to other women. There is only one place in his life for Whitney Alford. However, it is still unknown whether the wedding took place and whether the girl became his official wife. But, one way or another, they are happy together.
Despite the popularization of social networks, Kendrick prefers the good old live communication. But he could not escape from progress. So he still has pages on Instagram and Twitter. However, according to Lamar, they are led by his agents for him. Plus, he admits that he is not friends with gadgets at all, constantly loses his mobile phone on tour.
In order to somehow relax and unwind from performances, the musician often visits the sports grounds of his hometown, where he conducts training with friends from childhood. Sports are an integral part of Kendrick's life.
