Kendrick Lamar is one of the hottest rap stars to come of out of Compton California in a very long time. How do we know this? Because Lamar had trouble finding anyone who would challenge him in a competitive nature. Hands down, he was topping them all. So when he started releasing mix tapes, it was just a matter of time before a label would show interest. KDE records signed the young star, who at the time was going under the name "K-Dot." Lamar spent six years using that name, but it all changed when he came out with "Overly Dedicated." While opening for Tech N9ne, Lamar started to let loose with tracks from the mixtape titled "Overly Dedicated." A few songs from that release cracked the Billboard top 100 for R&B and Hip-Hop. "Section 80" was soon to follow, and that effort was subject to positive reviews.
Lamar has since released a full album, titled "good kid, m.A.A.d city" and just this week, his 2015 effort, titled "To Pimp a Butterfly" came out on iTunes. Check all tour dates for Lamar, and see you at Summerfest!
