Kendrick Lamar is killing it. The 31-year-old just won Best Album of the Year and Best Male Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards, continuing what has been a historic and just downright dope winning streak for the artist this year. From sell-out sneakers to that little thing called the Pulitzer Prize, K-Dot could take the rest of the year off and still call 2018 a success.

 

How’d he get here? In 2015 Lamar released a short film through his label, Top Dawg Entertainment, with the sole purpose of answering that question. The title of the film says it all: hard work.

 

Keep crushing it, Kendrick.
