One of the all time greatest rappers of our generation celebrates his birthday today, Kendrick Lamar aka K. DOT  of rap group Top Dawg Entertainment is turning 28. I usually don’t keep up with which celebrity turns what when, but Kendrick Lamar is one of the most gifted rappers to come up on the Hip Hop scene. He has proved how versatile he is as a rapper bringing heat regardless of whether he’s on a track rapping about Compton or featuring on a Taylor Swift song he never fails to deliver. Another thing to love about the TDE rapper is how humble he is as an artist. Kendrick is far from being a bourgeoisie rapper and his music isn’t centered around how big his car is, how many chains he’s wearing, or how many girls he had at his house last night.

Kendrick’s music talks about the hardships, temptations, and trials of life and gives listeners lessons on societal issues that occur in communities that everyone can relate to in some form or fashion. Kendrick packages up all of those and makes them into banger after banger after banger and his last album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ proves how much of a conscious rapper he is. Kendrick also isn’t one to shy away from accepting his role in the community either. In a recent interview with The New York Times Kendrick stated “I know that from being on tour — kids are living by my music,” the 28-year-old said. “My word will never be as strong as God’s word. All I am is just a vessel, doing his work.” Overall Kendrick is an amazing rapper and a positive figure helping in the community. Intice wishes him an amazing birthday and I can’t wait to see the things that he has accomplished by his next one.
