If You Like... Kendrick Lamar

Damn.

Kendrick Lamar is back in Australia for Splendour In The Grass 2018! The Compton megastar has become one of the biggest artists on the planet in recent years, most recently topping triple j's Hottest 100 in 2017, securing the number 1 spot with 'Humble'.

But does Kendrick's influence extend to the next generation of local artists coming through? Mmmm yeah, it does. triple j Unearthed's Dave Ruby Howe has collected five artists from around the country who we reckon you'll like if you like Kendrick Lamar. Have a listen to this episode of If You Like to hear some powerful raps about racial equality, splashes of G-Funk, blistering bars and a chat with Hau from triple j's Hip Hop Show about Kendrick's status as a GOAT of the rap game.
