sounds like you got alot out of this Kendrick albumThe 2nd disc of Kendrick album is really great. (The tracks where he sings with autotune sound so Kanye to me.)
I'm glad he's such a huge rapper, really. I can't imagine many rappers on this commercial level (that I've heard anyway) talking about the things he talks about on "Auntie Diaries" and "Mother Sober" e.g.
The 1st disc might be too but I need to revisit it cos I felt like it slipped me by yesterday.
There's things about him as a rapper that put me off when I hear a single song that make a lot more sense in the album form.
I feel like he rarely makes bangers and rarely delivers succinct punchlines/quotes like e.g. Drake and Pusha T but he's a much more fascinating performer, persona and writer than either of them.
Sometimes his ventriloquist voices get on my nerves, but again stretched over a whole album they stick out less than when I hear a single.
I revisited "Sing About Me" yesterday and that one actually makes me want to cry. And listening to his older music like "Hol' Up" and "The Heart pt 1" makes me kind of yearn for a slightly simpler version of Kendrick who 'just' rapped to rap beats in a fairly straightforward and technically dazzling way. But of course him constantly trying to evolve and do something new is what makes him worthy of attention on this scale.
i'm a bit surprised not lie cause this kind of rap you'd usually be like "i like it but really i feel like i shouldn't be listening to it cause its nerd shit deep down"
