BEAT BOX: KENDRICK LAMAR RAPS IT LIKE IT IS
The first time I heard of Kendrick Lamar was one Friday night after driving from a friends place to a nightspot. My friend who I was driving with in the car was playing a new fresh sound I had not even heard before. When I asked the friend who’s the artist? he answered with a strange laugh Kendrick Lamar you fool.
Kendrick hails from the rough streets of Compton, California in the United States.
The sizzling hot rapper released his first mixtape titled “Youngest Head Nigga” at the age of 16, with a view that one day he could get the opportunity to share his experience and creativity with the world. Kendrick is Known to have graced his followers with high quality intense Lyrics through songs such as “Rigamortus”, “Kush and Corinthians”, “Ronald Reagan” and “Hii Power”. The lyricist is an absolute beast on the mic and boy oh boy his songs definitely leave an impact. No wonder mega producer and record label owner Dr. Dre scrambled to recruit him.
