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

He revealed that he used to struggle with his speech until he learned how to channel his thoughts and feelings into song.

Two fun facts: Lamar, has been described as the "black Bob Dylan" by superproducer Pharrell Williams, and he 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.
