Pulitzer Prize and Multiple Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar has signed a "long-term deal" with Broadcast Music, Inc., one of the top global performing rights organizations.
He is now part of the organisation's Top Dawg Entertainment team which boasts a portfolio of artists such as Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and SZA, among others. It also now represents Lamar's current discography which includes good kid, mA.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly, and DAMN.
We are thrilled to welcome @kendricklamar to our #BMIFamily! A global sensation, #KendrickLamar made his major-label debut in 2012 with good kid, m.A.A.d city and quickly rose to fame with 1.72 million in album sales. His 2015 follow-up, To Pimp a Butterfly, and his critically-acclaimed 2017 album, DAMN., also reached platinum status. DAMN. debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2017, and in 2018, Lamar made history when it earned him a groundbreaking Pulitzer Prize, making him the first non-jazz or classical artist to receive the coveted honor. Throughout his career, Lamar has also received 13 GRAMMY Awards and 37 nominations (including a GRAMMY win at this year’s ceremony in the Best Rap Performance category for “King’s Dead”), as well as six Billboard Music Awards, and many other honors.
