Yes, it’s here. It has been nearly five years since Kendrick Lamar released his last studio album Damn. But at last, a new Kendrick Lamar album will finally arrive. Whether you know him best as Kung Fu Kenny, King Kunta, Cornrow Kenny, K-Dot, or King Kendrick, it’s undeniable that Kendrick is already cemented as one of hip-hop’s greatest rappers. And while his bars have constantly received critical acclaim since the days of releasing singles like “Hiiipower ‘’ for Section.80, it’s about time his great sense of style receives some recognition too. While Kendrick isn’t typically put into the same spotlight when it comes to fashion compared to artists like Tyler, the Creator or Playboi Carti, he has pulled off some great fits within the past decade. In some cases, his co-sign even helped blow up some brands that are worn by tons of celebrities today.
Kendrick typically dresses in a more humble fashion compared to his dripped out contemporaries, but he has gone all out on some of his looks over the years. He was wearing Pyrex Vision hoodies weeks after Virgil Abloh introduced the brand in the early-2010s, and wearing archival Raf Simons and Craig Green pieces for recent performances at the Grammys.
To celebrate the release of his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, we rounded up some of the best Kendrick Lamar outfits of all time. Scroll down to take a look at how K-Dot’s style has evolved over the years.
