Once Whitney was introduced as Kendrick’s high school sweetheart, fans wanted to know everything about her, however, she has kept hidden all the major details about herself from the public – she is a rather secretive person.

Kendrick Lamar Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Now that we have introduced you to Lamar’s girlfriend, let’s share some information about Kendrick himself, from his childhood days to most recent career endeavors. Born Kendrick Lamar Duckworth on the 17th June 1987 in Compton, California, he is the son of Kenny Duckworth, who was a member of the Gangster Disciples, a street gang, and Paula Oliver. His childhood was tough, and marred by poverty, forced to grow-up in section 8 housing, living on welfare. However, he found solace in music, and witnessed Tupac and Dr. Dre becoming one of the greats of the Compton rap scene. Inspired by their success, at just 16 years old Kendrick released his first full-length project, a mixtape entitled “Youngest Head Nigga in Charge” under the stage name K-Dot. He later started using his real name, and after initial success signed a contract with the record label Top Dawg Entertainment. In 2005, his second mixtape “Training Day” saw the light of the day.

Lamar’s debut full-length album didn’t appear until 2011, but before that he released three more mixtapes, “No Sleep ‘Til NYC” (2007), “C4” (2009), and “Overly Dedicated” (2010). His popularity slowly increased, and in 2011 his debut album “Section. 80” came out, but only to mediocre success. He continued with full-length releases, and in 2012 his second album “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” was released to critical acclaim, landing in the No. 2 spot on the US Billboard 200 chart, and achieving triple platinum status in the US. Kendrick continued in the same rhythm with his next two albums “To Pimp a Butterfly” (2015), his first release to top the US Billboard 200 chart, and “Damn” (2017), which also topped the US Billboard 200. Also, Kendrick has produced songs used as the soundtrack for the film “Black Panther”, and the score album “Black Panther: The Album” again topped the Billboard chart, and achieved platinum status in the US.
