Lets be clear I heard Kendrick Lamar for the first time on mixtapes around 2011. I remember it wasn't too long after my son was born but from day one I was taken by everything about him. From then till now he has probably released five projects and he has not missed a step. I kept on telling people that he is the next star and damn I feel like Im watching someone I knew from day one. Dr Dre has had the true gift and fortune in finding and working with some of the biggest and most important hip hop artists in our generation. I only wish Kendrick becomes better and greater over time. I'd hate to see a Kanye West typa of meltdown from this guy.
