Wired 25: The 25 Most Important People In Hip-Hop Under 25
If you ask many rap fans, writers or critics, they will tell you that the only album that can stand up bar for bar with Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch The Throne last year was Kendrick Lamar’s Section.80. The instant classic shined a new light on Kendrick and his Black Hippy crew like never before and caught the attention of the entire Hip-Hop world. He went on to standout guest appearances on Drake’s Take Care and Game’s The R.E.D. Album. So what will he do for an encore? His single with Dr. Dre “The Recipe,” will be featured on his Interscope debut Good Kid In A Mad City and after hitting the Club Paradise Tour with Drake, A$AP Rocky, and Chase N. Cashe, he is heading out on the Under The Influence Of Music Tour with Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and more.
