In 1991, Kendrick was born the oldest of three to a single mother, Karen Lamar.
Kendrick's father left shortly after he discovered Karen was pregnant unfortunately so they grew up in poverty and rough neighborhoods around Chicago.
Kendrick witnessed his first act of gun violence when he was 5 years of age. His uncle got on the wrong side of gang affiliations and drug dealing. He was exposed to this culture at a young age.
Kendrick was a good kid however, he was easily swayed by peer pressure and negative influences. Kendrick commited his first felony, an armed robbery, after his friends convinced him to join them. He never got caught.
Kendricks friend died later that night after smoking cocaine-laced marijuana from celebration of their lucky night out.
After Kendricks friends passing, he went out to seek revenge on the dealer who sold the blunt. He got arrested for murder. While Kendrick was in prison, he didn't know that he impregnated a girl and now his daughter has to wait 30 years before her father is released from prison.
