Ushering in a new era of lyrical excellence, Kendrick Lamar is the genius MC who, on the eve of releasing his major label debut, announces his first Australian tour.
Kendrick Lamar (born June 17, 1987), is from Compton, California and is currently signed to Top Dawg, (Dr Dre’s) Aftermath and Interscope/Universal. A member of hip hop supergroup Black Hippy, along with fellow West Coast rappers and label mates Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, Lamar first gained major attention after the release of his fourth mixtape, ‘Overly Dedicated’ in 2010. The following year he released his first independent album ‘Section 80’ to critical acclaim. Released exclusively through iTunes, it was instantly ranked as one of the top digital hip hop releases of the year.
Across his career Lamar has amassed a large following and has already worked with Dr. Dre, Game, Drake, Rick Ross, Talib Kweli, Busta Rhymes, E-40, Warren G, Bun B, Tech N9ne, Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga among many other artists. His major label debut studio album ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city,’ is set to be released in Australia on October 26, 2012.
The album has spawned the crossover hits ‘The Recipe’ and ‘Swimming Pools (Drank),’ which have further propelled his status as a supreme MC who crosses over to previously disparate fan bases. Before the release of ‘good Kid…’ Lamar also dropped the Just Blaze produced ‘Compton’ and the Hit Boy produced ‘Backseat Freestyle,’ showing even more diversity to his output.
Niche Productions is thrilled to announce the debut Australian tour of this phenomenal artist Kendrick Lamar. Do not sleep on these shows!
