Biography

Born on June 17, 1987 in Compton, California, Kendrick Lamar Duckworth enjoyed writing stories and poems as a student, and as time went by he began writing lyrics inspired by the street life in his native where he grew up. When he was 16 years old he began rapping and shopping around a mixtape dubbed "Youngest Head Nigga in Charge" under the moniker of K-Dot. It drew the interest of many and earned him his first record deal with Top Dawg Entertainment, under which he released two other acclaimed mixtapes, "Training Day" (2005) and "C4" (2009). Upon meeting fellow rappers Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q, Lamar began performing with them under the name of Black Hippy.

By the time Lamar released his fourth mixtape "Overly Dedicated", he dropped the K-Dot moniker and began using the shorten version of his name, Kendrick Lamar. In the same year, he exclusively released his first solo album "Section.80" on iTunes under Top Dawg Entertainment. The record paved Lamar's path to collaborate with already famous names, like Young Jeezy, The Game, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne. He then caught the attention of Dr. Dre who subsequently took him under his wings and willingly became his music and business mentor.
