K. Dot. King Kendrick. Cornrow Kenny. King Kunta. Kung Fu Kenny. Top Dawg Entertainment’s shining beacon of hip-hop greatness has many monikers, but his born name precedes them all - Kendrick Lamar.
Kendrick’s a definite fave of ours and a multitude of hip-hop diehards thanks to his masterful wordplay, strong discography, and dedication to reflecting on the social ills of the modern world. When he hops on a track, you can bet that he’ll deliver a bevy of quotables and make you reflect on the serious topics he touches on. His delivery of quality mixtapes, EP’s, and LP’s have made it so hard to hit the skip button - why would you when K. Dot regularly provides incredible bars backed by wonderfully crafted beats? We made sure to revisit all of Kendrick’s projects so we could reflect on the best songs he’s put on each one.
