Talking to Pigeons & Planes, the scribe said, "My book details the artist's coming of age as an MC, how he helped resurrect two languishing genres (bebop and jazz), his profound impact on a racially fraught America, and his emergence as the bona fide King of Rap."

He said the book will centre specifically on three of Lamar's four studio albums - good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly, and DAMN..

It will examine how "Lamar charted a personal and societal awakening in America".

"It details how his story directly connects to the charged spirits of art and revolution. Ultimately, the biography explores the broad global impact of Lamar and his work," he added.
