Kendrick Lamar

In The Well Versed’s “Origins of Excellence” video featuring Kendrick Lamar, the 25-year-old rapper said that when he was 8, he watched the filming of “California Love,” featuring his hip-hop idols Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur, in Compton, Calif., which he still calls home. After his self-released 2011 debut, Section.80, received critical acclaim, it all came full circle for Lamar: Dr. Dre signed him to his label, Aftermath. The word-slinger is in high demand; his first studio-produced album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, was not only released on Aftermath, but also Interscope Records and Top Dawg. The album features that signature Black Hippy swagger on solid-gold trunk-thumpers, like the first single “The Recipe,” summer sizzler “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and the promotional single “Compton.” Ab Soul and Jay Rock provide support.
