The song on its own would be an incredible closer to the album, but it is the spoken-word "outro" that takes place immediately afterwards that make this one of the finest closing tracks of the 21st century, if not of all time.
Oh my gosh what an ending. You just have to listen to it. It ties together the whole concept of the album and it's musically gorgeous.
The poetry combined with the seamless interview with Tupac makes for a haunting ending to the album.
Ever time I hear that ending, it just leaves me stunned and unable to think for a few moments afterwards.
While To Pimp a Butterfly has sustained its brilliance throughout the year, there's something about "Mortal Man" that gets better and better. Just... damn.
The track itself is nice, but the proceeding interview that Kendrick "Forrest Gumped" himself into is beautiful.
This song and the following poems and interview gave me a lot to think about, not only in relation to the album as a whole, as it brings the whole thing together beautifully making you look at each song in a different light, but in relation to my own life and society as a whole. When s**t hit the fan is you still a fan? Was a question I was already considering before, and was trying to answer. Asked by one of my favourite artists it hit home hard.
The hip hop equivalent of A Day In The Life.
Pac... Pac... Pac!
Starts with a great straight forward song with a great message. Turns into this fucking interview/poem thing. Mindblowing.
