The intro that becomes the outro is just . Apart from the single DNA., PRIDE. and FEAR. are early favourites. The PRIDE. gets instrumental/melodies get me so bad, Anna Wise needs to collaborate with with Kendrick for eternity.
Rih's lower register rap-singing on LOYALTY. reminds me of Beyoncé if she'd been hitting the blunt a little harder.
Big AOTY contender.

I actually think he bringing back the old style of hip hop when it was more focused on rhyming and storytelling about the struggles of people of colour in America. I place him among the greats such as Eminem, Biggie and Tupac. J Cole is good but Kendrick is on another level of great imo.

Hermes wrote:This is all I'm listening to, at the moment. I'm not feeling YAH. much, but that's probably because it comes right after DNA., which is bananas. It's not too bad, though. Actually, there's not a single track I dislike on it.
I wish he'd come to France too. I'd buy tickets in a heartbeat.

A quick notice regarding To Pimp A Butterfly. The political statement... I never could identify with it. But seeing all these news in the past... I suddenly could relate more to the record. I found a new amazement of this freaking huge record. Although I'm still not the biggest fan of the jazz influence.
Whenever he will come to tour in Germany... I will RUN to my laptop and buy a f*cking ticket and I will happily die.

My faves are Love Galore, Supermodel, Drew Barrymore, 20 Something and Broken Clocks
This shade at the end thoughDnBLover wrote:SZA had hands down the best Urban album of the year. It's the rawest, most unique, freshest and f*CK you release of the year. It has a bit of everything sound-wise without ever getting poppy or commercial. She's a unique kind of artist with her only flaw being that trollback seems to like her.

Please look forward for this year's countdown. I'm planning to do album of the 10's as well by 2020. I know it's still a long way to go but priority I guess. I hope we're all still gonna be here.
