Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar has dropped off of this year's Summer Jam concert presented by Hot 104.1 (WHHL). No reason for the absence was given. Lamar was to be the headliner for the event.

The last time the dynamo rapper was set to come to town was in December with Kanye West, as part of his Yeezus tour. That stop was canceled after some of the gear for the stage show was damaged in an accident.

In the last six months a bevy of high-profile pop and rap artists have canceled their St. Louis stops, including Big Boi, Miley Cyrus and West. Kendrick Lamar now joins that list...again. St. Louis just can't catch a break, it seems.

The Superjam lineup for June 21 is rounded out by Yo Gotti, Ty Dolla Sign and Cash Out, who will join Juicy J, Juvenile, K. Michelle, August Alsina, YG, Rico Love, Tinashe, K Camp and others.

More information on the show can be found at hot104stl.com. Watch a video for Yo Gotti's "King Shit" below:

We will update this post with any further information on Lamar's cancellation as we learn it.

No one will know who he is next month. Support local music and stop feeding the pop machine.

actually, buying more of his music and concert tickets in this area would create a demand to be supplied.

I don't think famous people understand how loyal STL fans can be....nor how long our memories are.

I think StLouis will get by just fine. Now if Bruce or the Stones kept canceling their St Louis dates that might be news.

Business is business, I was on tour with Bone Thugs as their tour photographer for a few years and I know first hand, things happen out of their control and things sometimes get cancelled or rescheduled... Artists are human just like everyone else...

Wow. I totally agree Ian. Kendrick Lamar is SO much more talented than all of you uninteresting losers doing absolutely nothing with your lives! Go ahead and hate on music you know absolutely NOTHING about! Big Boi is one of the most talented out there. Listen to his song "Rooster" and tell me you wouldn't enjoy that live. Seriously, STL, get a clue!

Only the fastest growing hip hop Sorry I don't listen to talentless hip hop criminal music that is anti gay , pro drugs, and stuffing dolls in trunks.

There are a lot of ignorant idiots in this thread. "Who?" Oh, only the fastest rising hip hop artist in the past five years, who was nominated for a Grammy on an album that landed on several album of the year lists from respected music publications and has been on numerous albums across multiple genres. It's fine though. Nickelback will be back sooner than later for you guys.

How do all these people know how to use the internet, but can't look up a few albums reviews, maybe stream a song or two, and learn something about music? Kendrick put his a lot into a fantastic record a two years ago, and someone has the audacity to call him talentless, or less or whatever. It's just a shame and quite frankly really embarrassing.

"St. Louis just can't catch a break, it seems"

I would suggest St. Louis has caught several breaks, and they are listed in this article.
