Kendrick Lamar is one of the most critically acclaimed and successful rappers of our time. His every new release jolts culture in a new direction, ever so slightly, and has so since his second studio album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, released in 2012. His reach has been monumental, with over 13 billion Spotify streams, 12 Grammy awards, and over 6 million albums sold worldwide.
His fourth album DAMN. is another triumph, with a debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 – marking his third time at the top spot – and earning him five Grammys from seven nominations. Lead single ‘Humble’ took out the coveted #1 spot in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2017.
In a short but illustrious career, Lamar has made an incredible mark on the music world and is certainly an act not to miss at Splendour In The Grass 2018.
