THE BEST KENDRICK LAMAR SONGS!

Listen to the best Kendrick Lamar songs.

If we recently talked about Keny West’s new album, today we want to give a good review of some Kendrick Lamar songs that have made him one of the biggest musical sensations of the moment. We are looking forward to new music from him, as well as concert dates that are near us, but for the moment we are going to enjoy 15, or more, of his essential songs. Here is a selection of top Hip Hop!

Kendrick Lamar

The famous Californian singer, Kendrick Lamar Duckworth since his beginnings has transcended hip-hop thanks to his new and fresh sound that has left many fans of this genre speechless, so much so, that we could say that he is one of the greatest artists in the history of this genre born in the Bronx of New York. Kendrick’s great influences such as Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Tupac to name a few are key to his inspiration. 

His stories about hunger, need, and crime, are themes that have deeply trapped us, and Kendrick Lamar knows how to tell stories giving voice to those who need it. His ability to combine rap on fire with harmonic melodies has made his songs resonate beyond communities outside his own!

The most recurring theme in Lamar’s albums is that of a young and innocent man trying to express himself while surrounded by violence, which serves as inspiration about the rap industry’s glorification of violence, and Kendrick often stood up to adopt an image that didn’t represent him.

What are Kendrick Lamar’s best songs?

King’s Dead – (BSO Black Panther, 2018)

Commissioning Kendrick Lamar to produce, compose and select songs -and artists- for the Black Panther film score was a tremendous success! An album that contains the top brass of today’s best Hip Hop. In “King’s Dead”, for example, you can find Jay Rock, Future, and James Blake alongside Lamar.

Sing about me, I’m dying of thirst. – (good kid, m.A.A.d City, 2012)

Kendrick Lamar is much more than a narrator of neighborhood stories. In fact, in this wonderful song that you can find in his first official album, he presents himself as a different narrator who has been a witness or even a protagonist of the violence of the streets. Amazing!

DUCKWORTH. – (DAMN. 2017)

That Kendrick Lamar is the first rapper to receive the Pulitzer Prize is no-nonsense and serves as an example of the lyrics and the story he tells in this song.

How much a dollar costs. – (To Pimp a Butterfly, 2015)

It’s not the only song that former President Obama has highlighted by Kendrick Lamar but it was the first and we’re not surprised because the rapper’s take on the greed and how he tells the story he tells is an absolute genius. 

DNA. – (DAMN. 2017)

Kendrick Lamar criticizes, celebrates, explores, and exposes all his DNA and culture in this great song. The music video features the participation of actor Don Cheadle!

All the stars. – (BSO Black Panther, 2018)

Of all the stars in the form of songs that make up the Black Panther soundtrack, this one shines the brightest. A delightful collaboration between Kendrick Lamar and SZA that was rewarded with a nomination for Oscars, Golden Globes, and a handful of Grammys!

The Blacker the Berry. – (To Pimp a Butterfly, 2015)

Kendrick explores hate and anger in a song that cannot be understood without “i”, also included in the album To Pimp a Butterfly. Both songs seem to play at contradicting each other and thus show two sides of the same coin. 

ELEMENT. – (DAMN. 2017)

Kendrick knows he’s in charge, and that’s what this track is all about!

Swimming Pools (Drank) – (good kid, m.A.A.d City, 2012)

One of the singles that put him on the map, at least internationally, here Kendrick explored alcoholism with a look as lucid as it is powerful.

m.A.A.d city – (good kid, m.A.A.d City, 2012)

Good kid, m.A.A.d City was Kendrick Lamar’s big-time debut. Although Kendrick came from delivering work in 2011 that only saw the light online through the iTunes Store (Section .80) here is where he stands out as the great promise of Hip Hop that is already a reality. A lot of autobiographical load in this song, in which he describes a murder he witnessed at age 9. 

Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe – (good kid, m.A.A.d City, 2012)

A song that was originally going to include Lady Gaga’s feature, but in the end due to deadlines it couldn’t be. Even so, it’s still a great song and its lyrics are wonderful!

FEAR. – (DAMN. 2017)

Terror by Kendrick Lamar. Terror at three different points in life, with 7, 17, and 27. Awesome!

i – (To Pimp a Butterfly, 2015)

It was the first single from To Pimp a Butterfly. A masterpiece that transcended genres and labels and has become an essential album. Its influence permeated even the immortal David Bowie.
