gonna be honest, i'm not feelin this as much as i was section 80. the production is so much better on section80 imo. maybe it's just me but i'm really tired of hearing these 2 step beats that all the big producers are doing. the lyrics are on point but some of these beats are just so derivative. that's expected from a major label joint tho. i think everybodys quick to call this a classic because few rappers put out lp's meant to be heard from front to back anymore.

anyone else think the first half of m.a.d.d. city sounds like mercy?

To each his own man...I would never argue it's a better album although production wise I could, but Blue Chips is still my favorite album of the year. Might not provide as might insight into someone's life, but it's just way more entertaining to listen to.

I agree wit ya cam, but not everyone gonna love this. Just cause millions prefer a Taylor Swift album doesn't mean we can't vibe.

this is a very good above average hip-hop album but nowhere near a illmatic classic level album!I don't know what it is about this album but it doesn't impact me like sec. 80, on sec. 80 i felt like i could relate to kendrick.

all the basic bitches on tumblr and shit bumpin poetic justice even know they don't realize that song is based off them. Throw in Drake and that will get them wet and a overly confident attitude. I don't know about you guys but this shit is deep ex. "Sing about me/I'm dying of thirst." I will never forget about section 80, they are both classics and really solid albums.

I'm actually hearing more people praise the album and say it's good instead of the other way around.

naw, listen to it a couple more times the skits def have meaning and without em i don't think the order of some songs would make sense. ex: Money Trees -> Poetic Justice if you took out that skit i just cant see the flow of the album being as good

do u view me? do u see my maneuvers?

this is a really great album and much artsier and different than anything else out these days (whens the last time you've seen a 12 minute songconfused. some of the songs may be so-so individually, but when in context with everything else, it works well. what makes this album better than section.80 to me is how clever it is as a studio album. kendrick gives us the standard fare we'd expect from any major rap release these days (a hit-boy track, a drake feature) and cleverly molds it to fit with the overall theme/story he's going for.

give it some time...it has not been out that long...im sure nobody that is ragging on it has given it more than 5 full listens front to back
the best albums take some time to sink in, they are generally complex and dense, and oftentimes not catchy right away...what im saying is, give it some time to sink in and expand in your head before you go spouting off and declaring that it's bad OR good
in my experience it takes at least 2 weeks to be able to form a valid opinion about an album, sometimes up to a month before it really clicks or with some albums as long as 3.

People who say.........Backseat freestyle and poetic jus
LOL, this is not a bad album but this has gotta be yet another slightly above average hip hop album that everybody is dickriding to the maximum.

Stop comparing shit to Illmatic btw. It's the most cliched, nonsensical barometer to grade things by. If you like it, great, but this was not some groundbreaking shit that everyone is swearing by.

I give this shit a month or two until the next hyped project gets dickridden into oblivion by cacs and twitter niggas.


Naw nigga I have to disagree....the tone of the album is immaculate....above average hiphop album????? I also have to disagree...Please tell me the last time you heard an album of this caliber.


The "tone"? The fuck does that even mean in this context? Who cares? The album is flat out boring and isn't interesting to me. I just don't "feel" Kendrick on a personal level. He's talented but I just don't like his music, and I am baffled as to why people are going as far to compare this album to Illmatic.

How the fuck do you even make the connection? Comparing this to Illmatic is like comparing beets to tangerines.

This is a run of the mill album. It isn't bad, it isn't great, it's good. This has to be the most hyped project I've heard about since J. Cole's debut where—surprise—people compared it to Illmatic. You must be a real "hippity hop head".



Naw B chill.....you don't have the slightest clue of what you are talking about......Maybe you should listen to it again B cause there is nothing flat about this album B.

I hear a skit for about 20 seconds max in each song so if a storyline and actual meaning= skits then yeah it's full of skits. Album of the year no question.

Ok, so i finally listened to the album paying attention to the lyrics (more attention) and the skits.

Before, the album was still great in terms of lyrics, flow and production.

Now listening to the skits, it's amazing. but its not the skits that make the album amazing.

its the story in the songs.

Sing about me, im dying of thirst is hands down the best song. The first verse as Dave's brother and him getting killed while telling Kendrick to not forget about this story then the 2nd verse of the Girl's sister kendrick mentions in section.80. It's amazing how she says that she'll never be forgotten "i'll never fade away" then slowly her voice starts fading away. Then kendrick replies to both of them. AMAZING.

When I was in high school and actually spent tons and tons of time diggin for music, ah man, tons of niggas. Here are some of my favorite artists during my high school hip hop quest:

J Dilla's discography (The Shining is one of my favorite hip hop albums)
AZ
Jadakiss
The Diplomats in their prime
Wu Tang (mostly Ghostface, U-God, Masta Killa, GZA and the rebel INS) but aside from a few tracks, i like their solo work better than their group shit
Styles P
MF DOOM
Cam'ron
Vado
I was big into Biggie and Tupac but not as much now
Nas sort of, not really a huge fan, but i like a lot of his shit
Clipse/Re-Up Gang
Rick Ross
Group Home
Gangstarr
Guru's solo stuff
Blackalicious for a little while
Kanye
Jay
Drizzy the gawd
Kid Cudi
some of the gold Slum Village shit
Canibus the gawd
Vinnie Paz the gawd

Lately though I've been really feeling Freddie Gibbs never listend to him up until a week ago and he's quickly become my favorite rapper at the moment.

Outside of the hip hop realm I dabbled in some white boy shit like Depeche Mode (big fan of their stuff), Audioslave (Chris Cornell the gawd) and Tool

Also i'm a big Mavado and huge Buju fan and i like a lot of dancehall/reggae shit. I listen to some soul like the Temptations, the Manhattans, got some Thelonious Monk on my shit. I listen to a lot of stuff man.

I listen to a ton of music but I just don't feel anything when it comes to Kendrick. I like Schoolboy and Ab Soul though, not sure why everyone dickrides the Gremlin though.
