Kendrick Lamar Duckworth is an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer. Since his debut into the mainstream with Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, Lamar has been regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation, and one of the greatest rappers of all time.
Kendrick Lamar was born in Compton, California, on June 17, 1987. His parents had moved to Compton from Chicago to escape the city's gang culture, although Lamar's father had been associated with the notorious Gangster Disciples gang. As the 1980s crack trade and West Coast gang presence increased, Lamar grew up around precarious street activity, but he seemed more influenced than harmed by it.
When mentioning American great rappers, there is no way Kendrick Lamar won't be mentioned as he has always been compared to the likes of Drake, Lil Wayne, and sometimes Eminem. The same goes for M.I Abaga, he is one of the greatest rappers in Nigeria, if not the greatest he is one of the greatest and will always be remembered for his impact in Nigerian hip hop music.
