sucks. needs to go blow his nose

The reason I think people are enjoying this album so much is because its organic, there's no bullshit radio singles that the label forced him to do, its just him telling you his story in his artistic perspective. Thats exactly what drew me into albums like Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, F&L, The Cool, etc.


Well actually, look at swimming pools.. its a banger, and gets play as a single, yet its still incorporated so well into the album that it doesn't matter.

Kendrick is a versatile and well rounded artist. He has the ability to make the deep down lyrical shit, and at the same time he can turn around and spit a track over a mainstream-ish beat and still make it sound unique.

Ppl saying this album is like a film nikka idgaf I just want music if I wanted a film
I would have bought a DVD. Btw, this "film" makes no sense.

Just random skits that have no meaning.

..there are people who just can't fuck with concept albums..but then again if you took away the skits to remove context..it would still be an amazing listen since lyricism and production are still on point

^ yeah but when it comes to The Needle Drop, he takes ALBUM reviews very seriously. Notice they are called ALBUM reviews. What he usually looks for is a full album that is a concise and continuous story/thought/theme/etc. The rap albums he usually hates on are usually just collections of songs.

Oh and Pitchfork gave GKMC a 9.5

Kendrick Lamar spit nothing but the truth on GKMC. You gotta understand wtf he's talking about and where he's coming from to fully appreciate the album. Had high expectations for the album before it was released and i can honestly say he surpassed them..so many songs i can live by on a daily. i salute the good kid in a maad city.

Mad respects to Kendrick Lamar

all i gotta say is GKMD gives me that same feeling of DAAAMMMNNNN as lupes food and liquor or the cool, ganstarr's the owners etc... its a classic to me. I mean coming up with the line "But the one in front of the gun lives forever" is just too ill! dope MC and kendrick gives hope to this game with so many same-sounding rappers!
