I do not understand Kendrick Lamar's shit. Everyone seems to be so high up on him, but he's just another rapper that puts on a fake accent and raps. What is it with this trend shit? I don't get it at all, there's so much better hip hop out there.
The subject matter of his material is something that harkens back to the "golden age" of hip-hop when a lot of records were about struggle and systematic oppression. Lots of people can't get over the nasally voice he puts on occasionally, and I understand that. But the reason the record is so good is because the subject matter is fantastic, his flow is fantastic, and the production is fantastic.
