listening to this again right now. don't really see the hype. the song i'm on now has lyrics that aren't too far off from something krispy kreme might put out. good for him and anyone who likes it, though.

debated on responding cause that shit is over my head, still. i can't think of any lyrics that he might be talking about that aren't tongue in cheek. wanna chalk it up to the pretentious solution: "he just doesn't get it."

All I can think of is the sections where Kendrick is offering social commentary by keeping his lyrics simple and stereotypical, but if you're listening to the album at all, you should get that.

when i posted in the thread, i was listening to "backstreet freestyle." i wasn't listening super closely, but these lines are similar in terms of structure and ridiculous puffery:

"i pray my dick get big as the eiffel tower/so i can fuck the world for 72 hours."
"goddamn i got bitches/damn i got bitches/damn i got bitches, wifey, girlfriend, and mistress."

i'm not saying all of the lyrics are like that or they don't fit into some bigger picture, but that's what those lines reminded me of at the time. i wasn't trying to speak to the whole album or make comparison beyond those lines in that song. that said, i've finished another listen of the record and still wasn't feeling it. like i said before, it's cool that a lot of people really like it and that he's seeing success, but, after two listens to each of his albums, i just don't think his music's for me.
