Land   Verenigde Staten

In 2003 verschijnt de eerste mixtape van K. Dot, Youngest Head Nigga In Charge. Sinds 2010 gaat hij als artiest verder onder zijn geboortenaam. Een mixtape uit 2010, O.D., komt onder de aandacht van Dr. Dre. Twee jaar later verschijnt zijn eerste officiële single, samen met diezelfde Dr. Dre, The Recipe. Vrij snel is ook zijn debuutalbum Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City een feit.

In 2013 verschijnen in een rap tempo de tracks Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (samen met Emeli Sandé), Yolo (met Lonely Island en Adam Levine) en Give It 2 U (met Robin Thicke) die alledrie in de Tipparade blijven steken.

In 2014 levert hij, samen met Alicia Keys, de track It’s On Again. Het nummer, afkomstig uit de film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, is zijn vierde notering in de Tipparade. Taylor Swift vraagt hem in 2015 mee te werken aan een nieuwe versie van één van haar tracks van het album 1989. Dat wordt uiteindelijk Bad Blood waarmee hij eind juni in de Top 40 komt. In september 2016 levert hij een bijdrage aan The Greatest van Sia, waarmee de rapper ook zijn eerste Alarmschijf scoort. Een maand later blijkt hij ook meegewerkt te hebben aan de nieuwe single van Maroon 5, Don't Wanna Know.

Halverwege april van 2017 verschijnt het album DAMN, waarvan Humble inmiddels al was verschenen als single. Datzelfde album verschijnt in december nog een keer maar dan als Collectors Edition met alle nummers in omgekeerde volgorde, volgens Lamar zoals het album eigenlijk bedoeld ws.

In 2018 is Lamar medeverantwoordelijk voor de soundtrack bij de Marvel-film Black Panther. Met Sza maakt hij de track All The Stars voor die film en met The Weeknd maakt hij het nummer Pray For Me.


Songtekst

I am a sinner
Who's probably gonna sin again
Lord, forgive me
Lord, forgive me
Things I don't understand

Sometimes I need to be alone
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
I can feel your energy from two planets away
I got my drink, I got my music, I will share it, but today I'm yelling

Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe

Look inside of my soul and you can find gold and maybe get rich
Look inside of your soul and you can find out it never exist
I can feel the changes
I can feel a new life, I always knew life can be dangerous
I can say that I like a challenge and you tell me it's painless
You don't know what pain is
How can I paint this picture
When the color blind is hanging with ya

Fell on my face and I woke with a scar
Another mistake living deep in my heart
Wear it on top of my sleeve in a flick
I can admit that it did look like yours
Why you resent every making of this
Tell me your purpose is petty again
But even a small lighter can burn a bridge
Even a small lighter can burn a bridge

I can feel the changes
I can feel the new people around me just want to be famous
You can see that my city found me, then put me on stages
To me that's amazing
To you that's a quick check, with all disrespect, let me say this

I am a sinner
Who's probably gonna sin again
Lord, forgive me
Lord, forgive me
Things I don't understand

Sometimes I need to be alone
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
I can feel your energy from two planets away
I got my drink, I got my music, I will share it, but today I'm yelling

Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe

I'm trying to keep it alive and not compromise the feeling we love
You trying to keep it deprived and only co-sign what radio does
And I'm looking right past ya
We live in a world, we live in a world on two different axles
You live in a world, you living behind the mirror
I know what you scared of, the feeling of feeling emotions inferior
This shit is vital, I know you had to
This shit is vital, I know you had to

Die in a pitiful vain
Tell me a watch and a chain
Is way more believable, give me a feasible gain
Rather a seasonal name
I'll let the people know this is something you can blame
On yourself you can remain, stuck in a box
I'mma break out and then hide every lock
I'mma break out and then hide every lock

I can feel the changes
I can feel the new people around me just want to be famous
You can see that my city found me, then put me on stages
To me that's amazing
To you that's a quick check, with all disrespect, let me say this

I am a sinner
Who's probably gonna sin again
Lord, forgive me
Lord, forgive me
Things I don't understand

Sometimes I need to be alone
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
I can feel your energy from two planets away
I got my drink, I got my music, I will share it, but today I'm yelling

Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe

You ain't heard a chorus like this in a long time
Don't you see that long line
And they waiting on Kendrick like the first and the fifteenth
Threes in the air, I can see you are, in sync
Hide your feelings, hide your feelings now what you better do
I'll take your girlfriend and put that pussy on a pedestal
Bitch, don't kill my vibe
Bitch, don't kill my vibe

Walk out the door and they scream it's alive
My new year's resolution is to stop all the pollution
Talk too motherfucking much
I got my drink, I got my music, I say

Bitch don't kill my vibe
Bitch don't kill my vibe
Bitch don't kill my vibe
Bitch don't kill my vibe (My vibe, my vibe, m vibe, my vibe)
