Kendrick Lamar Claims Rapping Helped Him Overcome Childhood Stutter

0

Hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar overcame a stutter as a child by focusing on perfecting his rap skills.

The critically-acclaimed “Poetic Justice” hitmaker reveals he used to struggle with his speech until he learned how to channel his thoughts and feelings into song.

He tells The New York Times Magazine, “As a kid, I used to stutter. I think that’s why I put my energy into making music. That’s how I get my thoughts out, instead of being crazy all the time.”

Lamar, who has been described as the “black Bob Dylan” by superproducer Pharrell Williams, isn’t the only celebrity to suffer from the disorder – British pop star Ed Sheeran and actors Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson all battled stammers during their youth.
