With his long awaited major label debut album, 'good kid, M.A.A.D. city' on track to be the most explosive hip-hop debut of 2012, Kendrick Lamar has lined up his first headline tour of the UK.
Hailed as the new face of West Coast Rap, the 25 yr-old Compton-native has already been making his mark on the music scene, first with his sought-after mixtapes – ‘Training Day’ and ‘C4’. Then with his self-titled debut EP, 2009’s ‘Kendrick Lamar’ which featured his trademark singles ‘P&P’ and ‘She Needs Me’, followed up by 2010’s ‘(O)verly (D)edicated’ powered by the singles ‘Michael Jordan’ and ‘Cut You Off’.
In 2011 he independently released ‘Section. 80’ becoming one of the top digital hip hop albums of the year. Fast-forward to 2012 and with the weight and backing of Dr. Dre (the two recently had a joint XXL cover), Kendrick is ready to release his highly-anticipated major label album ‘Good Kid, m.A.A.d City’ out October 22nd through Top Dawg Entertainment/Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope Records. As well as scene stealing features alongside Drake, Mary J. Blige and others - Kendrick is poised to be the first artist in a long time to not only change how the country views West Coast Hip Hop, but how the world sees Hip Hop as a whole. “The coolest sh*t to say used to be the gangsta sh*t,” Kendrick says. “But now, the real cool sh*t to talk about is supporting your family.”
