Professor Adam Diehl discusses Kendrick Lamar's albums and elaborates on the context in which they stand as art.
If I had to pick an era of jazz, it would not be pre-jazz, but that being said, jazz is the music of America and it's the most American music form of all except for maybe hip-hop. So I think him appealing to that and appealing to '70s funk and R&B, rather than just trying to get another hit… I wasn't expecting him to be so particular about the feel of the album from a musical standpoint. I thought he was going to have a lot to say lyrically, and the music was going to not be industry-dictated but take more of a backseat to the lyrics. And by no means was that the case.

Rembert Browne wrote a really great piece on Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker the Berry" for Grantland:
Kendrick is attempting a lot in one song. It’s an internal monologue, made public, in which he’s working out his own issues, acknowledging his own demons. Is it conservative? Is he coming down hard on black people? Is he coming down surprisingly hard on white people? Does he fully understand race and power and inequality as much as one perhaps should before jumping in this sea of generalizations? There are days and weeks and months and infinities left to parse out these ideas. But what is true from even the first listen is that Kendrick is talking directly to black people.

Author Michael Chabon has written his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker The Berry."
In this final couplet, Kendrick Lamar employs a rhetorical move akin to—and in its way even more devastating than—Common’s move in the last line of “I Used to Love H.E.R.”: snapping an entire lyric into place with a surprise revelation of something hitherto left unspoken. In “H.E.R.”, Common reveals the identity of the song’s “her”—hip hop itself—forcing the listener to re-evaluate the entire meaning and intent of the song. Here, Kendrick Lamar reveals the nature of the enigmatic hypocrisy that the speaker has previously confessed to three times in the song without elaborating: that he grieved...
