Personally I had never listened to rap or hip-hop of my own accord. Then just a few weeks ago I found To Pimp a Butterfly... My whole perspective has changed. Kendrick is really special. I've dived into a few of his other albums and was just as impressed. He is an amazing lyricist. Of course his life story is just uplifting. I can't relate even close to the struggle he has, but he expresses them in his music and it is just gold. Not only has he opened my eyes to rap, hip-hop, etc. but he has quickly become one of my favorite artists in just a few weeks.

Best hip hop artist right now and best artist in pop music this decade with a consistent and sustained level of quality throughout the 2010's. If he releases nothing after DAMN. he will still be the best artist this decade. GKMC/TPAB is the best 1-2 knockout punch in the hip hop / pop hybrid genre since Kanye's first 2.

Without a doubt, the greatest musician of this era. No artist has come close to the consistent quality of albums, musical style, and creativity. He may be the greatest rapper of all time.

The greatest artist of the decade. He will go down as a legend in rap. Possibly will be the greatest of all time, he's already in those discussions. His latest two albums are masterpieces.

Don't really care for Section.80, but Good Kid, M.A.A.D City and To Pimp A Butterfly are some of my favourite albums of all time. One of the best lyricists I've heard too. IMO the greatest artist of the 2010's.

A great artist and definitely the best mainstream rapper currently. One of the few that actually deserve their fame.

Kendrick is an artist but seriously, he doesn't get me viscerally like some lesser known rap artists. I'm by no means a hip hop expert. It grates on me as a rule. Lamar doesn't grate on me so much but when you compare his stuff to say Skepta and his grime style of Brit Rap then it falls well short on that visceral level I mentioned above. I know there will be fans of hip hop reading this and if you haven't checked out Konnuchiwa by Skepta then I recommend you do.
