Today the hip-hop community celebrates the born day of one of the most prolific artists in the game, Kendrick Lamar. Ever since he burst onto the scene with his O.verly D.edicated project, K. Dot has taken the music world by storm while simultaneously proving that his hometown of Compton is more than just gang-banging and violence. Kendrick has been inspirational to the youth and has brought with him an energy and mentality not seen since the late Tupac Shakur. 28 is an age that most people from Compton don’t get to see. With that said, peace and blessings to Kendrick Lamar and may there be many more birthdays to come.
For good measure, give Kendrick’s new album, To Pimp A Butterfly, a spin today.
