Kendrick Lamar: his wildest numbers and records

Kendrick Lamar has finally returned to the front of the stage with his new album Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, the opportunity to take stock of his various figures and records.

Do we still need to explain how Kendrick Lamar is a living rap legend? Active since the end of the 2000s within the independent label TDE then revealed to the general public by Dr. Dre in person, he was able to gradually climb the ladder until he established himself as the undisputed king of the US rap game.

Throughout his projects, his mixtape Overly Dedicated to his latest project, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppersthrough his various albums Section.80, Good Kid MAAD City, To Pimp A Butterflythe soundtrack of the movie Black Panther and DAMN., the rapper from Compton has forged a force of influence so great that his aura has gone beyond the borders of rap and music in general. We remember in 2015 when his title “Alright” propelled him as a spokesperson for the African-American community in the face of police violence.

Not content with being a genius rapper, a philanthropic artist and with a big heart, a political ambassador and an ace of rhyme, the one who must now be called Oklama is also the first and only rapper in history to have won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. As if that weren’t enough, he is also part of the very select club of artists who had the privilege of being invited to the White House by former US President Barack Obama.

Let all these distinctions as well as all the figures that we are going to present to you bear witness, Kendrick is not only a legend of rap, he is a true icon as he rarely emerges in history.
