Kendrick Lamar - Damn

Xquisite    
Overview
Kendrick Lamar is a rapper form Compton, California. He has been doing very well this year. Damn is a collection of conscious rap mixed with fresh flow patterns and presentation styles. There are no ad-libs. There are no breathe-taking instrumentals. He is coasting off of pure talent. Damn is a good album. It's much better than "Untitled" and "To Pimp a Butterfly." He's always had a very insightful look at politics. His focus on jurisdiction rather than discrimination is more effective. In DNA, he says he feels like people have been "fed forgiveness." Connecting privilege to ethics is very astute.
Defining Track
"Humble" is phenomenal. No song has been that good and original in a long time. He's pumping a large amount of hip hop's hype single handedly. He was drifting into irrelevance on the mainstream scene until it dropped. He's back.
Final Thoughts
Kendrick Lamar is very talented. There isn't anything revolutionary about his subject. He isn't bending the genre rules. He's just being an incredible poet.
