I was actually signed up for it, but I've been busy and there are some really good reviews on it out there...not sure I can express all of its qualities so thoroughly and eloquently, haha. I passed it on to Drew.

Sorry Jason but you might be missing the point..

Rap/Hip-Hop album of the year, no doubt.

Such an incredible album. I didn't think he'd top Section.80, but welp. Good for him.

Good for him. Album is fantastic.

:appl:

I know everyone else mentioned it already, but 1. skipping around the album defeats the point of this album and 2. Kendrick's not promoting misogyny, he's telling a story through the eyes of himself back in high school, before he learned what's "real" and what's bullshit.

On the other hand, I can see if you're frustrated by the constant use of "bish" (bitch), though I don't think he's aiming that at women.

I'm not riding this guy like many of you. He's not that good. He's not that clever. He's not going to say that he chose his own fate, and when came to a fork in the road he went straight.

If you ever want to, you should check out the story behind all of the lyrics on the album. It's conceptual. His mind is really incredible.

Also Glassjaw, anyone? haha.


Glassjaw? Huh?

Great for him. Easily the best hip hop album of the year.

Everyone always associates hip hop with misogyny as if that's all it's about, but non-hip hop music never gets scrutinized in the same way. Darryl's lyrics in the past, at least, have been pretty degrading whether poetic or personal.
