It's no secret that I am a huge Black Hippy fan. I don't know anyone who loves hip hop or even casually listens to hip hop that doesn't appreciate Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock for what they bring on the forefront. Now before everyone starts saying, "Eh-P, get off of Kendrick's nuts," this isn't a love for Kendrick post. This album, as a whole, is the most complete project I have heard since...
[This is where I went to go check my music library to see the most complete albums over the last decade...]
- Jay-Z's Black Album
- Kanye West's College Dropout and Graduation
- Jay-Z and Kanye's Watch the Throne
- OutKast's Speakerboxx/Love Below
- Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor
- 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Trying
- Young Jeezy's Recession
- T.I.'s Paper Trail, The King, Trap Music
- Common's Be
- Raekwon's Only Built for Cuban Links II
And finally, Kendrick Lamar...Section .80
Now Section .80 was an EP. This doesn't really count as an album since there was no real registration of record sales. The only thing that happened was the internet blew up. Who is this dude coming out of the shadows of the West Side? Who's this cat spitting lyrical content through vivid stories, so vivid in fact you think it was the rebirth of 2Pac? Who's this guy getting dabs from the biggest acts out of the West side...from Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, The Game, E-40...and the man Dr. Dre? He working with Dre...I mean, where Detox at?
Once artists starting hearing who this kid was, everyone wanted a verse. Go check his featuring list here.
Now the album is here. All the interviews, freestyles, featurings, award shows (Lyricist of the Year without dropping an album), performances and what not. Kendrick Lamar, what you got for us?
