Yes. Hype around it is huge.Every Hip Hop head on the planet will be buying or streaming it. Will be the biggest Hip Hop major label debut since Get Rich Or Die Tryin.
Taylor Swift's album will outsell both of these but i think Kendrick's sales will suprise alot of people.
we'll see on the 29th though.
You may be right that this is the most hyped-up hip-hop major label debut since Get Rich or Die Tryin', but look at the difference in the record industry between now and nine years ago man. No way does Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City sell more than 400k-450k max first week.

Weird. You'd think I would have heard one of their songs by now
Haven't you Heard "The Cave" or "Little Lion Man"? :) those were really popular with the previous album...

I've never really seen the mass appeal of these guys. Songs on the radio are not unlistenable, but I would never go out of my way to listen to them. Maybe I'm just not hipster enough ... fuck it I'm going to listen to some Latterman

Btw is it just me of do these guys repeat the word "Heart" in every song they write

They're a band that can appeal to the average music listener. At the end of the day, the release is good. If you're saying "every song sounds the same," it's because you're not listening hard enough to what is being played. You're sitting there telling yourself how you hear are the quarter bass drum notes, with a guitar, banjo, piano, and bass.

Good for them. I was a fan of a few songs on the first album, but was a little confused for all the love of "I will wait" when the verse has the same guitar backing as "Little Lion Man"
