* 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.

** A WorkingTitle for ''To Pimp A Butterfly'' was ''To Pimp A Caterpillar'', because if you [[Letters2Numbers change "to" into "2"]], then [[FunWithAcronyms initialize the rest]], you get [[Music/TupacShakur 2PAC]].

* TakeThat: "King Kunta" takes shots at rappers who use ghostwriters, rappers who didn't actually earn their success and just hopped on the latest trend, and people who blindly follow the next big thing (i.e., Kendrick) just because they're popular.
