Kendrick Lamar is an American hip-hop and rap star hailing from the home of all things gangsta - Compton, California. After finishing his first ever mixtape back in 2003 (at the age of just sixteen), he continued to write and rap wherever he could, and first came to public attention with his 2010 mixtape ‘Overly Dedicated’.
2011 saw Lamar’s first album ‘Section.80’ hit iTunes after being released independently, and he garnered much critical acclaim - with some considering it as one of the best digital hip-hop albums of the year. 2012, though, saw his major label debut record ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’ getting a release.
Since then, Lamar's meteoric rise has continued, with UK and US #1 album, 2015's 'To Pimp a Butterfly', earning him critical approval across the board and taking his name to even higher levels. The album was followed by 'untitled unmastered' in 2016.
In April 2017, Lamar returned with his fourth LP, 'DAMN.' and once again saw him climbing to the top of the Billboard 200. DAMN. was toured extensively across North america with Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. in the summer.
Kendrick Lamar will tour the record across the UK and Europe throughout February 2018, with support from James Blake. He then heads back to the US and Canada for The Championship Tour with SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock and more, before headlining Reading and Leeds festival and perform at Glasgow's Summer Sessions at Bellahouston Park. Lamar has now confirmed 'The DAMN. Tour' dates in Australia and New Zealand too. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
