Kendrick Lamar is probably one of the greatest rappers in the game today. But Kendrick has disappeared from the music scene a time or two. Recently, Kendrick spoke about doing his last album with TDE (Top Dog Entertainment).
Will Kendrick Pursue Interest Other Than Music?
Kendrick had much success with his music. In 2017, Kendrick had a lot of Grammy nominations. And, Kendrick won “Best Album of the Year, “Best Rap Album of the Year, and “Best Rap Song for “Humble”, as reported by USA Today. Also, Kendrick was presented with a Pulitzer Prize for his rap album”Damn.”
Earlier in his career, Kendrick came onto the hip-hop scene with a 2003 mixed tape entitled, “Youngest Head Nigga in Charge.” Kendrick’s mixtape made enough buzz to get him a record deal with Top Dawg Entertainment, as reported by Biography. TDE is and very respected independent Entertainment company out in California. Kendrick would go on to release two more mixtapes (Training Day (2005), and (C4 (2009). In 2010, Kendrick met hip-hop legend producer Dr. Dre. Kendrick was signed to Dre’s independent record label “Aftermath Entertainment. That was when Kendrick’s career went to the next level. Some say that Kendrick is notably one of the hottest MC’s of his generation.
Kendrick has collaborated with some of the biggest names in hip-hop. His 2015 album “To Pimp a Butterfly”, featured Bilal, Snoop, and Pharrell Williams. In addition, Kendrick would go on to be nominated for 11 Grammy’s. Kendrick is not afraid to speak about social issues. In his performance, he brought the house down with “The Blacker the Berry” and “Alright”, which made mention of the death of Trayvon Martin. There are not many rappers today who talk about social issues in their music.
So, if Kendrick decides to stop doing the music we will lose a great voice in hip-hop. However, Kendrick is not the first rapper to say they will retire. Certainly, he will not be the last. For certain, whatever Kendrick decides to do we his fans will be watching. Perhaps, Kendrick will pursue his acting career. After all, Kendrick made his acting debut in Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson hit series “Power”.
