Kendrick Lamar

Holding his microphone and rocking a suit and tie, Kendrick Lamar covers GQ’s annual Men of the Year issue in style!

The magazine named the 26-year-old lyricist their Rapper of the Year, just in time for the one year anniversary of his debut platinum-selling album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City. The cover line reads, “The Next King Of Rap Kendrick Lamar Claims The Throne In Our Men Of The Year Issue.”

The magazine interviewed the Compton native in August, around the time everyone was super hyped about his then just-released “Control” verse where he called out fellow artists like Drake. He said he’s “pretty cool” with the Young Money rapper but added, “I mean, I would be okay if we weren’t.”

And as far as why he attended Diddy’s VMA aftershow party and not the main event, he said: “I only go when there’s a point. Usually the point is just niggas drinking. But walking through the club the week after I released the ‘Control’ verse? That’s a point!”

Check out the cover below. The December issue of GQ is on newsstands now.
