When it comes to who has been quickly rising up the charts of best rapper both lyrically and production-wise, Kendrick Lamar is the first person that comes to mind. In many ways, there is no better straight-up rapper right now than Kendrick Lamar. His verses feel like living things, with new, unruly flows spawning from them unexpectedly. His ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’ album went platinum and he was crowned the No. 1 hottest MC in the game by MTV. Arguably, he is one of the few rappers that are “saving” Hip-Hop today. At the just concluded American Music Awards, Kendrick was introduced as ‘The Next King of Hip Hop’. He’s a humble guy, always smiling, but when it comes to spitting, he plays no games. Everyone loves Kendrick for sure.
