I actually doubt even Kendrick is a literal millionaire. I doubt he could walk to the bank and take out $1 million. Music doesn’t sell like it used to, he doesn’t have huge tours and he doesn’t play he Super Bowl.

Probably a technical millionaire, but I doubt he has that much in liquid assets.

Kanye? Yes. Jay-Z? Yes. Drake? Yes.
Kendrick, eh... maaayyyybe.

No biggie.


Music is a subjective delight.


what I find tedious and uninspired can make you dance, and vice versa.


I do not look to Hip Hop for wisdom or advice or anything relevant to my day to day experience. I am a 46 year old Puerto Rican. Us Puerto Ricans created Hip Hop just as much as african americans, but we are left out of the history and conversations.



When I listen to Kendricks albums I am left with the impression I have heard it all before. I do not feel surprise, or joy, or fun, or whimsy, or fear, or suspense... I feel all those things when blasting Young Thug, Future, 2Chainz, Public Enemy, OUtkast, etc.

Hey donít mistake my shit-talking for actually being mad that you and I have different opinions. Lol. I like taking to you about music even though itís FUCKING INFURIATING!! Haha.

Iím genubely surprised that you think Kendrick is same old same old though. I guess I kinda did at first... back when louder (ever ahead of the curve when it comes to big time rap artists) was first hyping him. But the more I listened to good kid, mAAd city, the LESS it sounded like anything else.

Art of Peer Pressure did it. Nobody who previously toured with G-funk ever made something so seething and haunting. Narratively, itís a marvel. The whole album is. But I would listen to any of it if it didnít make me feel awesome.

So sick of Kenrick hype, I try to find reasons to NOT like his output. I take a very hard, critical look at his work, looking for flaws. Can't find many on Maad, Pimp or damn. A dud song here or there, a flawed line or two. Otherwise, certified GOAT. It's boring, really, how great his records are.

EDIT: Thought of something. He uses the word "pussy" way too much.

It *is* almost boring how perfect his records have been. Well put.

There are some meh moments on Section.80, but the great ones are SO great that I donít give a shit.
I personally donít enjoy playing TPAB that much because itís so goddamn intense in a personal, not sonic, kind of way, and I donít often get a hankering to meditate on dead black people, addiction, dead rappers, homeless people and the struggle with the ID. But it is objectively a brilliant album.

Damn is the one I bump the most, because once it starts, it feels like nothing else even exists.

Kanyeís production and overall sonic aesthetic is better and more ďimperfectĒ in all the right ways to make it super interesting as a whole. But as far as RAPPING goes, Kendrick is so good it feels like it shouldnít be a discussion.

He puts Eminem to shame in terms of interesting and structured flows and schemes over the course of a song, puts Pac to shame in terms of straight up rapping, and puts Biggie to shame in terms of swagger and intensity. (Yup, Biggie.)

Iím ready to call him the GOAT.

Yes. There is a lack of a sense of humor on Pimp. Even Maad had some amusing moments.

So, too much "pussy" and no humor at all on one record. Very, very minor flaws.

I canít think of any rappers who donít say pussy a lot, but sure.

Section.80 is only a good album. Definitely not a great one. But it has somemof his best songs, and every album thereafter (not counting the untitled. I unmastered EP or the snoozer Black Panther soundtrack) has been basically a 10. Thatís goddamn amazing.

What will be disappointing is when he stops dropping near-perfect records. Right now he has more great albums than any of the other artists I mentioned (aside from Kanye).

Funny, I hadnít really noticed the overuse of ďpussyĒ from Kendrick.
