I like Kendrick releasing a lot of stuff, but don't see him and Cole working well together. Maybe he'll bring out the best in him?

His mixtape dropped this week ("Church Clothes"). Don Cannon put it down nicely as usual and he has a mean 9th wonder beat on there. Sickest collab is his track with No Malice.

Dat Piff mixtape download

He's as average as they come, his album was a snoozefest. He's post-The Black Album Jay-Z lite.

"There’s a joint on there called ‘Form Follows Function’ that is a monster. It’s a monster. Nobody’s fucking with that, I just put that out there. Any other records I give other rappers and musicians, you could possibly do a better song than those. But ‘Form Follows Function,’ rappers ain’t fucking with that. That’s how good it is. I’m not being egotistical or anything. You just can’t fuck with that."

Damn Lupe!
