my excuse is that now my son is 3 i’ve suddenly had to become really careful about the tunes i have on in the car/house etc. seeing as a basically have music on everywhere i go it’s made listening to hip hop quite tricky.
i’ve only managed to listen to DAMN start to finish maybe 3 or 4 times. It’s fucking amazing though so far. I struggled with the scale/scope of TPAB and I’m probably more into this (and GKMC). King Kenny is just killing it though, can’t believe how consistent and fresh he continues to be. He sounds so athletic on this, his lyricism and vocal dexterity/bars are just killing it. also I think the reason I’m really into Damn is that it feels like Kendrick is driving the production down whichever road he wants to explore, rather than there be a theme/style that runs throughout TPAB. Maybe it makes it more disjointed, but I love that.
