When Kendrick Lamar released Section.80 in 2011, everything clicked. He wasn't yet a star, but he was ready. While a lot of people are just now getting familiar with Kendrick thanks to the excellent good kid m.A.A.D. city , he's been working towards this point for years. For years, he's been mastering his craft and putting in work with TDE, and he's gone from a background member to an internet sensation to the guy that a lot of people are pointing to as the most important rapper to come around in a long time.

Reports say he performed a few tracks from good kid, m.A.A.d city on stage, but only video from his Hit-Boy produced "Backseat Freestyle" performance has surfaced. ( [...]
Last night while performing on the LongLiveA$AP tour, Rocky decided while in the state of Cali (Oakland) to test our his new single, "F*ckin Problem". The track features Drake, 2chainz and Kendrick Lamar, who was in Oakland with fellow Black Hippy member SchoolboyQ. During the show A$AP dropped his new single and brought out Kendrick for the track. Definitely a live setting here, especially with this weeks hip-hop landscape being totally dedicated to #GKMC. Hit the jump to watch the clip. Read our interview with A$AP, from a couple weeks back when he was in Chicago
A$AP Rocky was in Oakland the other night to promote his forthcoming album, LongLiveA$AP and he surprised the crowd by bringing out Kendrick Lamar . The two performed "Fuckin' Problem," and while neither 2 Chainz nor Drake (who was probably off celebrating his birthday somewhere) were around for their parts, you best believe A$AP Rocky and Kendrick still gave the audience a fuckin' problem. Watch the performance below. ( Hip-Hop N More )
With the internet making a joyful noise for Kendrick Lamar 's stellar major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city ," one element that might fade into the background of the discussion is that the album isn't just great, it sounds great. That sonic quality is due in large part to Kendrick's trusted engineer Mixed By Ali, who speaks with LRG about Kendrick's recording process, mixing "Swimming Pools" with Dr. Dre's help, and differentiating yourself in your field, no matter what it may be. Engineers are often unsung heroes consigned to liner notes nobody reads anymore, because [...]

Each episode features Wilson giving to you straight about a relevant topic in Hip Hop music and culture.
