Kendrick Lamar is my favorite artist. I always find his reflections on abstract concepts displayed by his rap ability to be extremely thought provoking. Listening to his music has helped me persevere through some of my toughest times in life. I’ve spent countless hours studying to his music in pharmacy school and thinking about the things that really matter to me whenever listening to his songs. In this article, I would like to write about the three songs by Kendrick that evoke the most thought out of me.

My Infamous Life

After reading the autobiography of Prodigy’s book, “My Infamous Life”, I felt obligated to honor his life with this article because he accomplished so much in his music career by overcoming adversities that the average man could not handle.

If you’re an avid fan of Isaiah Rashad’s music, you’re probably craving for a new project and wondering when his next album will be released. Since the release of his last project, “The Sun’s Tirade”, it’s been nearly three years since he has dropped an album and he has shown no signs of creating another album. Unfortunately, I cannot explicitly explain the young rapper’s musical absence and even though I can make a valid argument for why his music is necessary and would be great in today’s culture, we should be more patient and understanding of his creative process.
