Wait, how tall is Kendrick Lamar?

Grammy-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar took a photo next to track star Usain Bolt. 

Hold on, how tall is Kendrick Lamar?

The Grammy-winning artist took a photo next to Usain Bolt, and the height difference is staggering.

Bolt is 6'5", according to a Google search of "Usain Bolt height." Our own Chris Chavez, one of six remaining track reporters on the planet, has stood next to Bolt on multiple occasions, and had this to say:

“Oh, he's a tall guy. He’s tall. Big guy.“

SI Recommends

Chavez estimated his own height at somewhere near 5'10" or 5'11", and claims his height difference with Bolt was not as bad as Kendrick’s. I saw Kendrick Lamar perform from the front row at the Yeezus tour, but I was too focused on the bangers to think about how tall he is.

Our best guess? Kendrick Lamar is 5'6". Or Usain Bolt is his dad.
