He is a hip-hop artist and songwriter. He burst on to the scene in 2010 with the release of "Overly Dedicated". The following year, he released the iTunes exclusive album, "Section.80". His major-label debut album "good kid, m.A.A.d city," was released in October 2012 to critical acclaim. The album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart and was later certified platinum. In 2014, he received 7 Grammy nominations including Best New Artist. In 2015, he won Grammy awards for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for his song "i".
Although, he has said his parents didn't raise him in the church, he credits his grandmother with providing him early exposure to biblical teachings. He also credits God for delivering him from the pull of crime and gang culture in his neighborhood.
In interviews with Complex and The Fader, he said, "God put something in my heart to get across and that’s what I’m going to focus on, using my voice as an instrument and doing what needs to be done....We’re all put on this earth to walk in the image of the Master." He went on to say, "If I want to idolize somebody, I’m gonna idolize the Master and try to walk in His light. It’s hard, it’s something I probably could never do, but I’m gonna try.”
On the intro to his 2012 album, he encourages listeners to come to Christ with the following prayer: "Lord God, I come to you a sinner, and I humbly repent for my sins. I believe that Jesus is Lord. I believe that you raised Him from the dead. I will ask that Jesus will come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I receive Jesus to take control of my life that I may live for Him from this day forth. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving me with your precious blood. In Jesus’ name, Amen."
His name is Kendrick Lamar.
