A Biography of Kendrick Lamar Is Currently in the Works
“Rise to rap superstardom”.
Kendrick Lamar has already made so much history in hip-hop and his legacy will forever live. K Dot is now headed to the bookstores! Marcus J. Moore, Bandcamp Senior Editor announced that he has signed a deal with Touchstone Books to detail the “rise and superstardom” of K Dot.
“He’s an iconic musician, and someone who truly appreciates the foundation of black art, using it as a vehicle to shed light on his community. He’s never forgotten where he’s come from and I think that’s honorable. He’s also a conflicted soul who’s always looking to improve, and is never satisfied with the status quo. He shapes culture and music in a way no other lyricist has. As a a big fan of his work, I want to shed adequate light on the man behind the music while giving proper context to his art,”
The biography will be titled, The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited the Soul of Black America. It will focus on three of K Dot’s studio albums, good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly, and DAMN. Moore also said that the book will have interviews with people from K Dot’s past, including his childhood. There is no set date as to when the book will be published — yet!
