BET Awards 2013 – Kendrick Lamar Performs (Video)


Kendrick Lamar took home the award for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and gave a moving acceptance speech telling kids watching in Compton that if he can do it, they can do it!

”To my little home boys and my home girls back in the city, you looking at me on TV right now, I came up in that same county building, food stamps, welfare section eight … this is living proof that you can do anything you put your mind to. They call us the minority, Blacks, Latinos, but [you can have success] for sure if you keep love, God, and respect in your heart.”

Suge Knight is once again a wanted man in California – unfortunately [once again] for all the wrong reasons.

According to TMZ, Suge has two new separate warrants currently out for his arrest, different from ones resolved back in February of this year.

Word is that they relate to driving on a suspended license and that Knight had two hearings this month regarding both cases – from 2011 and 2012 but he failed to appear and as such as two bench warrants issued for the cases, both for $20,000.

Someone should’ve told the cops they could’ve caught up with in the club with Snoop Dogg back in February 2013! Stay tuned for news as it develops.

Last night Dr. Dre presented his protégé Kendrick Lamar with the Vanguard Award at the 2013 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills.

The ASCAP (American Society Of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Vanguard Award is “Awarded in recognition of the impact of new and developing musical genres, which help shape the future of music.”

His major label debut album last year, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, via Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment under Top Dawg Entertainment, K. Dot – who was first featured online right here on DubCNN was certified platinum in January.

While presenting the award Dr. Dre told the crowd;

“When I decide to work with an artist, that means I’ve heard or seen something special, something unique, something different and ahead of the trends and Kendrick Lamar has my full attention. Now what could be better than not only finding an artist that is this talented, but one who grew up in Compton and also went to the same high school that I did. Centennial, by the way. In the same tradition as other emcees that came before him, Kendrick writes about what he sees going on in his world. But unlike other emcees, he approaches his music with vulnerability, humility and expresses the truth about himself and his generation, and the generation of people that connect to his story. The fact that good kid, m.A.A.d. city sold more copies than any other debut album last year is proof that his fans believe in him the way I do.”

Testament to that work and Dre’s words is the fact that the only other Hip-Hop act to win the ASCAP Vanguard Award were the Beastie Boys in 1999.

Dr. Dre went on to say how honoured he’s been personally to watch and mentor K. Dot;

“Kendrick Lamar is a class act, I’m proud to know him. I’m proud to work with him and he is an important part of the new generation of Hip Hop and is definitely continuing the legacy of Compton. Believe me.”
