Kendrick Lamar Duckworth, or as the world knows him Kendrick Lamar is hardly new to the game- it wasn’t until recent years that the man exploded into the legend he is today. Born and raised in Compton Cali, K-Dot skyrocketed to international acclaim after his original label Top Dawg Entertainment merged with Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records back in 2012.

After releasing Overly Dedicated, Section 80 and HiiiPoWeR, Kendrick gained a massive online following that included names like The Game, Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes- his flow turned heads and raised eyebrows of even big names at the time such as Eminem, whom invited him into the studio just to confirm he didn’t have a ghostwriter.

Having gained household name recognition after mentorship from Dr. Dre, his freshman album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City was released to critical acclaim- and was dubbed a classic before it even officially dropped. This has been Kendrick’s style across the board: everything he touches turns to gold, including the lit look he rolls in today.  

K-Dot doesn’t need a load of bling bling jewelry to be known in the room, but his masculine hip hop jewelry speaks more with its subtlety than some iced out jewelry ever could- see his DAMN jewelry, all heavy silver bracelets and stylish silver hip hop jewelry pendants. The man’s sleek, chic style has made heads turn just as much as his flow, and when you’re about copping Kendrick’s style, Hip Hop Bling has the hip hop jewelry bracelets and watches to make sure you’re repping like the man himself.

After To Pimp A Butterfly went critical, if anything Kendrick’s lyricism only gained heat on his latest studio album DAMN. Head of the musical soundtrack for 2018’s blockbuster phenomenon Black Panther, Kendrick Lamar has SLAYED between high profile collaborations and high profile projects that will keep the man busy for the foreseeable future- all we can hope is that he finds time to get back in the studio for his next studio album.
