If you’ve been following my blog, then you’re aware of how much I love Kendrick Lamar. I’m really proud of how far he has come in his career; and although he is really not a rookie, he is very well deserving to be given the title of “Rookie of the Year” by The Source magazine. Since the release of his independent album “Section.80,” he’s been gaining recognition like no other; from being crowned the King of the West Coast by Snoop Dogg, Game and Dr. Dre, to being crowned the “Next Big Thing” by Lupe Fiasco. The release of his major label debut album “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” only shook things up even MORE; I mean, you had people calling the album a classic within the same week that it dropped.
