Kendrick Lamar - T.D.E. rapper and Dr. Dre prot?g? Kendrick Lamar has certainly had a year to remember. K-Dot's highly anticipated debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, was well received by critics and fans (some even dubbed it a classic) for its progressive sound and refreshing artistry. The BET Lyricist of the Year award winner made Compton, CA, a hip hop hot-spot once again. Thus earning the praise as the new "King of L.A." (photo: John Ricard / BET)
