An incredible breakthrough album, the only thing that stops this from being perfect are the few very good tracks among the incredible ones. I still can't figure out where Poetic Justice fits in the record. A good enough song but clearly only there to draw interest with Drake's name.

2012 was the year that my friends, critics and myself had the mutual certainty of acclaiming a modern classic from day one.

Kendrick Lamar made every hip-hip artist rethink his game as vulnerability was taken back into the picture after a long commercial stretch of Blings and "G" Thangs dominating the nature and cultural heritage of hip-hop.

Back in 2012 Kendrick took his hurting and huge wisdom learned from the streets of notorious Compton and turned into it into one of music history's most vulnerable concept albums. In doing just this, Kendrick took hip-hop back to its historical roots.

Nothing states it more clearly than the real ending to the album, "Real", in which Kendrick sings "Should I hate street credibility I'm talkin' about hating all money, power, respect in my will, or hating the fact none of that shit make me real?".

Through the continuous phone calls from his parents trying to reach him on that night of gang banging back in 2005, the depth of love, family-ties and grudges become evident and makes this album larger than the sum of its parts.

Indeed, 2012 was the year when the genius saved hip-hop and turned the genre in a new direction - this album will echo loudly into the future.

Didn't really like this when I first heard it, now I'm a believer. A great album that I'll be listening to a lot more and without doubt this one will climb higher and higher up my charts.

Listen, I apologize for my earlier review and how unintelligent it was. Now an absolute lover of Kendrick Lamar's new album, I still think Kendrick sounds lost and looking for a way to express himself here. There's latent talent, for sure, but I just don't find it very fun to listen to. I find it all the more lacking in it's attempts to squeeze radio hits from the material.

This was hailed as an instant rap classic and rightly so. There really is not a bad song on the album--every one of them is great. Instead of riding the quintessential rapper bravado to the hip hop top, he seizes his way with words and the art of story telling and turns it into a more-than-hour-long rap masterpiece. The beats are beautiful and the rhymes exquisite.
