Kendrick Lamar is really pushing the genre in new directions. This album as well as To Pimp a Butterfly are some of the best rap albums made in a long time.

If you are white like me, to really appreciate great hip hop, you have to read the lyrics. Read the lyrics while listening along to a rapper spittin rhymes in time. Then you appreciate great artists at work. Yes, it's true, this shit *is* vital.

A great album that acts like a cinematic experience. It is a blend of accessible modern rap and classic gangsta rap and hip hop (which is further perfected on To Pimp a Butterfly.) Although TPAB is an instant classic, this is a pretty fantastic album too.
Best Tracks: Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe, Money Trees, Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst
Worst Tracks: Real, Poetic Justice

It seems the only artist in his genre that can release a better album is himself. This goes down as one of the greatest breakthrough's of his genre in history.

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.
