Biography: Indisputably the most acclaimed rap artist of his generation, Kendrick Lamar is one of the rare MCs who has achieved critical and commercial success while earning the respect and support of those who inspired him. After several years of development — he made his recorded debut as a teenager — Lamar hit an unparalleled stride in the 2010s. Good Kid, M.A.A.D City (2012), the Grammy-winning To Pimp a Butterfly (2015), and the Grammy- and- Pulitzer-winning DAMN. (2017), his three proper major-label albums, have displayed an unmatched mix of inventive wordplay, compelling conceptual narratives, and deft hooks.
The screenplay-level detail of Lamar’s writing has been enriched by the combined efforts of his many collaborators, including a diverse selection of producers and instrumentalists, as well as singers and fellow rappers. He has been equally effective as a singles artist, exemplified by DAMN. highlight “HUMBLE,” a number one pop hit.
