Artist: Kendrick Lamar
Song: “Hol’ Up”
Kendrick Lamar is no stranger to hip hop, although his name may just be getting the recognition he’s been working towards for years. Born in Compton, California, Kendrick Lamar considered the first time he saw Tupac’s “California Love” the moment he knew he wanted to get into the scene.
While Lamar has worked with a number of big names such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Lil’ Wayne, Kendrick still believes Tupac to be his biggest influence, and dedicates a portion of every concert he hosts towards the artist. Check out “Hol’ Up” below, a smooth jam that will get your head bobbing just as well as any other hip hop release of 2011.
