New Kendrick Lamar LP hype thread


#262

Did you enjoy ‘to pimp a butterfly’?


#263

yeah I thought it was really really awesome, one of the best things I had heard in years!

Full disclaimer: I know very little about rap & hip-hop and am also fully aware that my opinion is irrelevant.


#264

Have done a few more Nation/reverse listens now and the theory holds up big time IMO. The clever bastard.


#265

listen to more!


#266

It’s pretty fuckin’ great eh?

Bugger credentials, if it makes yr head nod you’re onto a winner.


#267

yeah, I just don’t like the production on DAMN as much as anything, sounds a bit boring and flat to me.


#268

Lots of growers on it pal and lots to unpack lyrically that force the beats to work their magic as you’re unpacking it.


#269

Nah it’s fair enough mate! Let’s be fair tpab was a massively colourful sound, who doesn’t like a weirdo rap free jazz opus?


#270

yeah, I’m often not in the mood for anything too intense sounding these days, maybe I’ll have to put it on as a running playlist or something


#271

Listened to this about 15 times in the last couple of days:


#272

I don’t either. And i’ve listened to rap music for 30 years


#273

Yeah this isn’t my favorite, but it’s good. Kinda sucks some of it is being used for the NBA playoffs intro videos and for highlights and such cos it’s already made me tired of it.


#274

I’d say it’s my least favourite of the four proper LPs atm but the still pretty great and it’s an album I think will age well


#275

I’d say the same which speaks way more about the calibre of his output in general than it does about Damn as it’s still by far and away the best thing I’ve heard this year and would probably be second only to Noname from last year as well tbh.


#276

Every time there’s new posts in here I get excited that it’s tour dates :frowning:


#277

What about this time? As far as I know, there are no tour dates.


#278

Very cruel

(Still no tour)


#279

:rotating_light: Still no tour alarm :rotating_light:


#280

ARGH


#281

Finally confirmed this
