After being nominated for 11 Grammys its was only fitting that XXL magazine gives King Kendrick its winter 2015 cover. Kendrick Lamar by far had one of the biggest year in hip hop to date and the images photographer Travis Shinn captured you can see what K.Dot feel he has more to prove.
Digging deep and channeling his inner Tupac, Shinn helped Kendrick capture that iconic Tupac spit at the camera picture. Kendrick, sophomore album To Pimp A ButterFly came out the gate with rave reviews. Living up to its predecessor Good Kid Maad City,TPABF was no sophomore jinx. You know you doing something good when the President Of The United States says that he has one of your songs in heavy rotation.
“I put out my second LP. I think it made a few, few waves within the culture of hip-hop. Not only that, but with man, period. You know just being a person out here listening to music and going through things.” Kendrick states.
Congrats to Kendrick on the Grammy nods and the amazing 2015 run.
