In this post Bridgett M. Davis, a professor of journalism and creative writing, expresses her oppinion on Kendrick Lamar’s literary footprint and focuses on his background on “Black Literary Tradition”. In her piece she references Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah and her piece on Kendrick’s involvement in the decline of the Black Blues narrative. She argues that Kendrick tells a story of the community he lives and grew up in. They connect with black youth and today’s youth in a very astute way, stories that tell of a way of life similar to their own.
