Next Up: Kendrick Lamar

I'm hoping you've already heard of Kendrick Lamar and his music.  If not, prepare to be amazed. Hailing from Compton, CA, he's mastered his craft by incorporating his first and second hand experiences of the streets. I've been bumping all three of his albums since J. Cole mentioned him on UStream in the fall and after one listen, I wished I'd heard of him before.

Signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, Lamar is also 1/4 of Black Hippy along with Jay Rock, Ab Soul, and Schoolboy Q who are all going to do some serious damage to the game.

Buy Kendrick's #Section.80 on iTunes today. Jay Rock's Follow Me Home will be available on July 26th.

The video above shows Kendrick rapping his #Section.80 song "Hol' Up" to Jay-Z "What We Talkin' Bout." Shouts to Hip Hop Music Now for the video.  Hit the jump for some more music and downloads.
