This album provided the most cinematic listening experience any piece of music ever has for me. It's like I can see the credits rolling as Compton plays.

I really don't know what to say. I've been listening to this album for months now and every listen through I'm absolutely amazed by the spectacular lyricism, production and complete charisma this album brings to the table. Sing about me will constantly sit as my favourite track of all time. To me this is the second best hip hop/ rap album of all time to 'To pimp a butterfly' but could be seen as the best.
Thank you Kendrick for this.

I have never really been a fan of rap or hip hop personally, nothing against it just not what I was into... Then I discovered To Pimp a Butterfly... And now I've just listend to this masterpiece. I was completly blown away. Kendrick has not only opened my eyes to a new genre, but just in a few weeks of discovering and listening to his stuff, he has become one of my favorite artists. This album is incredibly powerful. The lyrics of several tracks are just mind blowingly well written. The narrative is emotional and impactful. And of course, it is all tight, polished, and sounds divine. Sing About Me/I'm Dying of Thirst literally sent chills down my spine. Absolutely wow...

A true masterpiece. Production quality is off the charts and the songs still give me goosebumps after 40+ listens. This album is fantastic, I cannot stress that enough. I don't even normally like rap, but wow. Kendrick Lamar is amazing and this is his best album.

The album that will go down as my generation's most important contribution to music. Rarely does an album come by that is able to deliver such a pure artistic statement and transcend it's contemporaries to enter the realm of truly legendary records. An absolute must-own.

For me, this is the OK Computer of hip-hop. Not only consistent, but consistently brilliant. Lost count of how many times I've listened to it, but it never loses its impact. Honestly, one of the best albums ever made. Absolutely criminal that this is ranked beneath The Suburbs.

This album is one of the reasons I started getting into rap music. So many great songs, all of which follow a coherent story. It paints a very vivid picture in your head. It only came out five years ago but it's already a classic. And deservedly so. My ONLY gripe with the album are the last two songs. And kinda the Drake song.

Highlights- Backseat Freestyle, Money Trees, M.A.A.D. City, Sing About Me/Dying of Thirst

I don't usually like rap, I even tend to stay away from it. However, I decided to give this a try since Lamar's new album is coming soon and I must say I was blown away by this. I'm still trying to digest everything and I will listen to this more times, but this first time I found it amazing.

One of the best albums ever made by one of the best rappers ever. Will go down as a classic no doubt. Every song tells the story about not just his life but it also fits into many people that grow up in the hood like Kendrick.

idk how he did it. In under 5 years this album is now viewed as one of hip-hops best. Although it might not be the best, its still is a masterpiece in every sense of the word.
