Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
Just was listening to Kendrick Lamar, I swear this man is great, Has nice early works before he was famous (Listen to songs like Compton Chemistry), then has a great concept album in Section.80 and a story about his life in Good Kid M.aa.D. City, with an insane flow, and technical lyricism. Guy is going to be a legend. And just like Pac was the messiah for the streets, Lamar is going to be that for Compton. He's not only going to get guys out of Compton to seek a higher purpose in life, but he's going to inspire more good kids, I'm sure that there's plenty good kids out there, or even nerds, that are probably good at rapping but feel because they weren't born into a life of crime, they would have no chance to make it in the rap game. Now even though that's a bit different from Kendrick's story where he had people around him who were criminals, at the end of the day he still considers himself a good kid in a mad city.
