Another rapper who raps about real things, not weed and sex.
His rhymes are very deep and flow well.

His album good kid M.A.A.D City is very good.

Collabs often with other West Coast rappers like ScHoolboy Q
Why do all West Coast rappers nowadays only rap about hoes and pot?

A lot of them do, but Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q rap about real things that you can relate to.

An incredible up-and-coming West Coast rapper from Compton. He is well know for is highly praised album/mixtape Section.80 and for recently being signed to Aftermath Records. He has great lyrics, wordplay, and flow, which is demonstrated in his popular street song "Rigamortus." He is also great at using story-telling and emotion in his songs which is conveyed in his Brenda's Got a Baby-esque song "Keisha's Song (Her Pain)." Fellow West Coast rappers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Game have named him the new king of the West.
Kendrick Lamar is the future of hip-hop.

An overrated rapper who sounds like a fucking twelve year old girl who just got kicked in the vagina. Since his rise to fame, he has managed to drop three of the most awful and overrated albums in hip hop. He is so pretentious and overrated, I can't even take it. His only decent album was Section.80, but after that he became a mainstream corporate watered down sellout, making songs with rihanna and taylor swift. Maybe if he had a better voice I could take him more seriously but with that voice just ugh. This overrated rapper was also inspired by the work of lil wayne, so already that should tell you that he is a complete joke and that you should stay away from him. He tries to be a conscious lyrical rapper and speak on world issues but he fails miserably at it. Some people think he's like this hip hop savior or the new Lupe Fiasco but those people are obviously very stupid, because Lupe actually did what Lamar fails to do.
Guy1: Bro, Kendrick Lamar sounds just like a 12 year old girl who got kicked in the vagina when he raps.
Guy2: I know, and his music isn't that good either. His lyricism is very overrated, he's just a more lyrical version of Drake. To Pimp a Butterfly is the most overrated album next to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Kendrick Lamar is a rapper that was born in Compton, California. He started gaining popularity in 2012, and has been gaining popularity ever since. This can be attributed to his great lyrical fluency, insults towards other rappers from some of his lyrics in his songs, and addition of conversation towards the common issues in society of racial profiling, police brutality, and racism as a whole. Through his verses, he has inspired many people around the globe to give attention towards these unfortunate problems.
Kendrick Lamar is a very influential rapper.
