Kendrick Lamar is most definately that guy. I remember the first time I saw him, it was in New Orleans and he was on  tour with Drake and another artist that I wasn't familiar with name A$AP Rocky. Who would have known that he would have such a massive impact on hip hop and continue to be that artist that the fans anticipate.

 

Well this year he did a surprise leak with the new album "To Pimp A Butterfly" and the critics and fans had to rave about the release. You can also say that you have made it when you are asked to appear on popular day time talk shows, which is exactly what happened with Kendrick when he appeared on "Ellen".

 

Check out the live performance of one of my favorite joints off of the album called "These Walls". While I don't like to compare, I will say that he is one of the closest artist out there to Tupac as far as lyrical and fight for the cause type rappers.

Kendrick Lamar- "These Walls":

Be on the lookout as Kendrick should be on the move pretty soon with a concert sometime close to home for all of his fans. You know that I will be in the building and I am sure I will be impessed.
