iamCompton is exactly what his name embodies: Born and raised in the streets of East Compton, Cali, you may recognize his face for being the lead visionary for Compton’s very first tattoo shop on VH1’s television series Black Ink Crew: Compton. Real name Danny “KP” Kirkpatrick is actually far more than just a tattoo artist — he’s a HipHop Artist with something to say.

Dropping his newest offering, a loosie freestyle titled “TALK OF LA” which was released the same evening as the premiere of Season 2’s Black Ink Crew: Compton. The record itself was inspired by the late great Chick Hearn, who’s known for his commentary and clever words as a live broadcaster for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Compton states: “I’m getting better at this… man f*** what you heard, I’m the Talk Of LA. Rest In peace Chick Hearn.”

iamCompton who was born Danny Kirkpatrick grew up on the Eastside of Compton from Rosecrans to Alondra, the same streets that lyrical legends Dr.Dre and Eazy-E rapped about and once ran. At an early age, Kirkpatrick discovered his passion for music through experience. It was after he had lost everything that he was able to create a different type of energy — and music helped him find his place.
