This will not be Kendrick Lamar’s first visit to South Africa. The rapper previously traveled to the country in 2014, during which he made stops in Durban, Johannesburg, and Cape Town.

He acknowledged that his background was not always seen as promising, but he refused to let the limitations of his environment define him.
