Kendrick Lamar Covers GQ’s ‘Men of the Year’ Issue

Kendrick Lamar

From the streets of Compton to the cover of GQ, it’s been a hell of a year for Kendrick Lamar. One year after releasing his breakthrough debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, the TDE rapper claims his throne on the cover of the magazine’s “Men of the Year” issue.

King Kendrick was named “Rapper of the Year” by the editors of GQ. Previous “Men of the Year” have included Jay Z and Drake.

In the issue (via Complex), K-Dot discusses his “Control” verse and relationship with Drake.

When asked if there’s any beef, he said they remain “pretty cool,” adding, “I mean, I would be OK if we weren’t.”

Following the VMAs, Kendrick attended Diddy’s after-party, just weeks after “Control” dropped. “I only go when there’s a point,” he said. “Usually the point is just ni**as drinking. But walking through the club the week after I released the ‘Control’ verse? That’s a point!”

The December 2013 issue of GQ hits newsstands on Nov. 19.

    Congrats to Kendrick Lamar on his success. I wish him more success in the near future, Good Kid MAAD City will always be one of my all-time favorite hip hop albums.

    @BadBitch Syndrome, No GQ is for successful men who are making huge impacts in their field of work. Artists should be celebrated for their talent, not their looks.

    @JHP, gq is a fashion/style/culture magazine what the hell are you talking about. stop making stuff up

    JHP Reply:

    @erw, Music is part of culture, and Kendrick is a musician is he not? I’m not making anything up. On the website it says “The definitive men’s magazine, with style advice and tips, sexy women, entertainment and culture news, interviews, and more” Once again, I do believe Kendrick falls under the entertainment and culture category.

    The thing is that Kendrick CAN look good and it’s unfortunate that he looks terrible on a fashion/lifestyle magazine cover.

    Andy Reply:

    @thedon, nope, she is underrated by the “real hip hop fans”. And I wasn’t even talking about Nicki. Kendrick fans are still butthurt about her latest commentaries, I see.

    @Hov, True Dat. so overrated and most of all, the guy is just so ugly and short

    LOL he is very unattractive but his music is pretty good. Not one of my favorite artists but these comments are so fucking accurate.

    LOL! They done got Dot in a suit. Seeing Soul, Rock & Q in a suit would be THE DAY! lol congrats to him, though. It’s well deserved. Much more to come.

    Don’t know what some people are talking about. GQ is a men’s fashion lifestyle magazine not success or looks.

    Y’all must be blind, now I don’t care about the guy’s looks but he looks pretty good to me. I’ve never seen him smile but he’s smiling here, that’s nice. I think the real problem here is that y’all are too ghetto to appreciate a man in a suit. I bet if he had a hoddie on throwing up signs, he’d look just fine.

    @Wisdom, Actually, no. He’d look trashy and tacky and wouldn’t be on the cover of GQ Magazine. Dude is fugly, sweetheart. Thanks for letting us know you have no taste, though.

    Im black and one thing I hate about us black people is the fact that were always hating on other black people success, before kendrick was successful we werent seeing all the hate towards anything he was accomplishing, now that hes popping most of yall hating on everything he does, the worst enemy of a black person is a person of his skin color, our heart is black thats why GOD made us black i guess
