Kendrick Lamar had an amazing 2017 with the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful album DAMN. And yesterday (Thursday) it was announced that a biography of the California rapper is being made.
Marcus J. Moore (a contributor at Pitchfork) signed a deal with Touchstone Books to write the biography. The book will be called “The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited the Soul of Black America.”
According to Pigeons And Planes:
Moore is working with people from Lamar’s past to paint an accurate and detailed picture of his cultural impact. He explains, “Kendrick’s team is aware of my intention to write this book. I have interviews in place with people in and around the environment in which he grew up, as well as those who’ve helped him create music along the way.”
The book centers on Lamar’s 3 major debuts (good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly and DAMN). Moore told Pigeons and Planes “Ultimately, the biography explores the broad global impact of Mr. Lamar and his work.”
There is no word on a release date.
