Never been a big rap fan, but I love this dudes music. Couldn't find a thread for him though. Really looking forward to his new album.

What are some other similar artists?

I'm nowhere near an expert on rap music, and my tastes are very unrefined in that area, BUT my best friend mostly only listens to rap and loves Kendrick Lamar. He gave me a bunch of rap music recently (including Section.80) and I've liked most of it. I don't know if these would be considered "similar artists," but this is what I have and enjoy:

Joey Bada$$
Freddie Gibbs
Curren$y
Earl Sweatshirt
A$AP Rocky
Rhymefest
Schoolboy Q
Why?

Uhhh...there are some others, but I can't remember them off the top of my head.

Yeah not too many artists out there are similar to Kendrick, which is what makes him so interesting. You might as well just check out the rest of the Black Hippy crew.

He actually played here in Miami a couple of days ago, but I missed it because of work.

Saw him the other day in Orlando. Good dude.

As far as similar artists.... Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q are closest to him musically and literally. J Cole on his old mixtapes (The Warm Up and Friday Night Lights) is on a similar wavelength as well. Big K.R.I.T. is also a very humble rapper with soulful beats and honest lyrics. (Returnof4Eva)

Kendrick Lamar is coming through Utah very soon. I'm looking forward to a great rap performance. Who knows maybe Dre will be there ha ha

The rest of Black Hippy (especially Ab-Soul and ScHoolboy Q)
Freddie Gibbs

Danny Brown
Curren$y

Section 80 was my AOTY last year... and Control System (Ab-Soul) is a top contender for 2012 so...

so anyway, this thread inspired me to check out Ab-Soul. My friend just put Control System in our Dropbox, so I'll probably listen to it tomorrow. Thanks guys!
