It reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200, Canadian Albums Chart and UK R&B Albums. Kendrick Lamar began his music career at 16 years old, releasing mixtapes under the alias K-Dot. He quickly gained local attention, but it wasn't until his fourth solo mixtape, Overly Dedicated, that he saw greater success. The mixtape made it in the top 50 of the US Heatseekers Albums chart and the top 80 of US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. He followed up with his first studio album Section.80 that hit No. 1 on the US Heatseekers Albums and No. 113 on the Billboard 200.
