Pulitzer Prize-winning “poet laureate of hip-hop” Kendrick Lamar covers the August issue of Vanity Fair.
Photographer Annie Leibovitz give us a glimpse into Kendrick’s world, onstage and off.
And, through an ingenious double portrait she created by placing her subject in front of a projected headshot (which she had taken just a few minutes before), she presents a vision of both the man and the myth.
Kendrick Lamar’s work represents some of the most important music being produced today, period. He fits squarely onstage in the artistic community, like any other cutting edge, musical genius. — Dana Canedy, administrator, the Pulitzer Prizes
