Kendrick Lamar, the genius MC from California, has been making an indelible mark on the hip hop circuit since the release of his fourth mixtape Overly Dedicate in 2010, gaining major attention and eventually leading to his involvement with supergroup Black Hippy and signing with Dr Dre’s label Top Dawg and Interscope/Universal.

2011 saw Kendrick’s first independent album Section 80; released exclusively through iTunes, it was instantly ranked among the top digital hip hop releases of the year. He has worked alongside the heavyweights, from Rick Ross and Busta Rhymes, to Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga, and is becoming known for his diversity and lyrical excellence across genres in which you must prove your own.

Now, Niche Productions are bringing Kendrick Lamar to Australian shores for the first time. Those lucky enough to nab a ticket to this sold-out show are sure to enjoy the best of this stand out artist, from whom the best is yet to come.
