Having signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, Kendrick continued to pump out acclaimed mixtapes and finally released his debut album in 2011, titled ''Section.80''. The album won him great critical acclaim and revealed to the public the great potential the young MC had, including Dr. Dre and {{Snoop Dogg}}, who crowned him the "New King of the West Coast" at a concert.

* AscendedFanboy: This is true of most rappers, but Kendrick (especially in ''good kid, m.A.A.d city'') makes this a point in interviews and in his music. He has worked with many artists who were his musical heroes growing up, including E-40 (who he references in "Money Trees"), Dr. Dre, Music/SnoopDogg, The Game and, to crown ''good kid, m.A.A.d city'', he got Music/JayZ to feature on the remix of "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe".

Kendrick is known for delivering politically charged, story driven, and often nostalgic lyrics, drawing on his experiences growing up in a bad neighborhood. This is particularly expanded upon in ''good kid, m.A.A.d city'', an album all about his teenage years and experiences with drugs, alcohol and gang violence. He has cited {{Tupac Shakur}}, Music/TheNotoriousBIG, Music/{{Eminem}}, Music/JayZ, Music/{{Nas}}, Music/{{DMX}}, and Music/{{Andre 3000}} as influences for his music.
