Kung Fu Kenny took the best of GKMC and TPAB and put it all together in DAMN. While it may not be as great conceptually, it still stands out among its contemporaries.

I think TPAB and GKMC were significantly better (especially in production). Now that I'm actually putting in more listens to this album, I find it so frustrating that the songs that always get played from this album (DNA, Humble, Loyalty) really aren't the best at all. I'm not a huge fan of the production style here, but wow the last half of the album was thematically incredible.

XXX is one of Kendrick's best songs. Loyalty might be his worst

As a music fan this is one album you must hear regardless of whether or not your a rap fan

It represents an artist at the top of his game and at the top of his generation

Humble is simply stunning as are most of the other tracks

"My Left Stroke Just Went Viral "

From antaiospiano 08/31/2018 17:25
Decades of rappers trying to create proudness and self love in (black) people, and now this asshole tells everyone to be humble. Of course a bunch of white people give him a fucking Pulitzer prize: Our western culture is based on never being satisfied with yourself; never giving yourself a break to look back at what you’ve achieved in life. Look at Elon Musk recently where this mindset brings you. We need to stop idolizing these people who run head first into a burnout.
Humbleness and arrogance are both bad traits because in both cases you estimate yourself wrongly.
There is also an anti-materialism side to the song with which I have no problem. But all in all I find that people make him out to be much deeper than he actually is. I mean look at the victim blaming in his Billboard interview. And above all that he thinks he’s the chosen one or whatever and gets punished by God. Perfect cocktail for a depression if you ask me.

Anyway, the flow is as usual not bad with Kendrick. The beats are very good on some tracks: the “Hell Hath No Fury”-ish DNA., the pleasantly catchy sample on LOYALTY., the soulful PRIDE. and the laid back, “under water level”-ish sound on LOVE. But it’s all not very new compared with his and others’ previous efforts, and I fail to see how his sound is relevant today. It’s like a perfectly polished sphere: looks beautiful, right? But do you really enjoy looking at it?
It is clear that Kendrick’s music is just a vessel for the message, and it is not the music that is central.
