A drizzly Sunday morning in Compton, the sky an un-California-ish gray. Into the parking lot of a local hamburger stand pulls a chromed-out black Mercedes SUV, driven by year-old Kendrick Lamar , arguably the most talented rapper of his generation. There are a half-dozen guys from the neighborhood waiting to meet him: L, Turtle, G-Weed. Look how fucking big he is! Lamar grew up just six blocks from here, in a little blue three-bedroom house at th St. Across the street is the Louisiana Fried Chicken where he used to get the three-piece meal with fries and lemonade; over there is the Rite Aid where he walked to buy milk for his little brothers.
Duckworth grew up in a high-crime area of Compton, where, ironically, his parents had moved to escape a violent milieu in Chicago. He began writing rhymes as a young teenager, and he released his first mixtape, Youngest Head Nigga in Charge , under the name K. The music impressed Anthony Tiffith, head of the newly formed record label Top Dawg Entertainment, and he signed the musician.
Who Is Kendrick Lamar?
As DAMN. Rather, his biggest strength is his storytelling, his overthinking, as if no plot point need be left open. Whether he realizes it or not, his family has been attempting to center him ever since he started recording music. Here was Kendrick, still rapping with a lower registered rasp believing he could be king of the world. Instead, it came drilled down from Kenny, affectionately known as Ducky and Paula. Being Jay Z was bigger than being the son of Ducky, in his eyes. While Kendrick held ideals for how his rap career would go, Ducky saw different. Fathers always want best for their sons, I know the feeling personally. He lived on his own. He survived, on his own.
Kenneth Duckworth Jr older brother , Kayla Duckworth younger sister and two more younger brothers. Whitney earns her living as a makeup artist. Recently, she has made a pause in her career and went on maternity leave. Kendrick and Whitney welcomed their first child in July But US Weekly reported that Whitney gave birth to a healthy baby girl in summer this year. Kenny Duckworth is proud of his son, about which he announced through his account on Twitter.
