New Kendrick Lamar LP hype thread

#423

Re-looking at this album for my end of the year list and my initial disappointment has now revealed some real gems. The midtempo stuff is all really good. FEEL, PRIDE, and LUST are all great. I think its actually a better album then Big Fish Theory (the other hip hop release ive enjoyed) although the heights arnt quite as high (although DNA comes close)

I’m very late to the Kendrick Lamar party.

What album would you recommend for me to buy first?


#425

good kid, maad city


#426

Yeah, go GK:MC and also listen to the Dissect podcast episode about it as well if you want.


#427

Good kid maad city. But pimp a butterfly is his mangum opus


#428

Thanks folks. That’s as unanimous as it gets.
Good Kid MAAD City has been ordered.


#429

Ah man, it’s such a cliche to say, but I really envy you getting to listen to it for the first time. Probably still my top album of the decade so far!

#432

oh duh you posted it

was raising an eyebrow at him doing a marvel soundtrack


#433

I mean, are you surprised? Remember last year he did a collab with U2 and Maroon 5


#434

yeah but that’s just roll up and collect $500,000 for doing a verse in his sleep. he’s producing the whole soundtrack


#435

But musicians do soundtracks all da time brah


#436

Think youre underestimating how big a thing black panther is in black culture at the minute.


#437

don’t know shit about marvel full stop tbh


#438

It’s a black superhero in mainstream cinema. It’s a massive thing


#439

So. Like Blade? :smirk:


#440

God. Reading this back. Don’t mean to come across a sick there. I get the importance.
