Nothing I say about this generation's masterpiece will be anything new so I won't say anything about it except for the fact it blew my mind and I pity the fools with a basic mindset that aren't understanding anything he's saying on a deeper level.
This album stands along What's Going On by Marvin Gaye and Like Water For Chocolate by Common as one of the best socially conscious albums ever. Every element is fantastic. The poetry, concept, music and message are all executed very well
Amazing. Album. Helped me love myself. Luscious beats and an incredible amount of thought put in. Please!, buy this please. It tells a story that's truly human. Kendrick, you're amazing
It's alright....Ha, see what I did there?
I love this album because it's so black! I love the soul, jazz, funk, and groove of the album. This is what real hip hop is.
Better late than never, never really thought much of this man but I heard a few songs and immediately jumped on the hype train. Tooo good to let this pass by
Every song is important to what kendrick is saying. His stories and what he is saying is real and true. often it is relatable. Truly a great artist with so much talent waterful album
Amém Kendrick Lamar
@sabaPIVOTfan: Songs that mean the world to me! Kendrick Lamar - Sing About Me Earl Sweatshirt - Solace Saba - PROM/KING Isaiah Rashad…
@IllestviIIain: Yo cuando Kendrick Lamar nos saludaba.
Amazing album, love the jazzy style. The flow is incredible. Also, the always on point Kendrick lyrics. That's not it though, the songs in order tell a story, a poem. This is probably why this is one of my favorite albums ever.
a work of art
This album covers the topics of Culture, Race, Religion, Suicide, Alcohol, Family and the Rap game itself. Plenty of Subliminal diss tracks Some being towards Drake And I feel others were disappointed because it isn't full of trap beats and one word songs Its full of soul and fast pace rapping and story telling Definitely a album that is hip-hop. This relates to everyone in America that is a minority or not But this was made especially for those who arent in any form of class in money also. Five stars hands down...
Why is this album so underrated? I do not get it.
This in my opinion is a 10/10 album, definitely one of the best Hip-Hop albums of all time. I would definitely recommend to anyone, even those who are not fans of Hip-Hop.
for everyone that says this album is overrated, disappointing, or wack you truly don't know real hip hop.. Kendrick displays true talent by using unorthodox beats, and since it's not catchy it's wack.. these jazz and blues melodies compliment the pain, joy, and hope within the lyrics.. He has a conversation with Jesus Christ, and loses a place in Heaven by not humbling himself with "How Much A Dollar Cost." No one in mainstream Hip Hop is putting out material like this. This is true creativity, true artwork, and a true masterpiece worth every dollar.
