Lets separate the artist and the music for one sec. Kendrick is incredible artist and yeah may be the best rapper currently alive. That being said this album is so subpar. Other than the stand out dark and lyric punching DNA and Duckworth all the songs fall flat. This album is very incohesive with the overall theme. Good Kid Madd City (his second project) and To Pimp a Butterfly (third project) had theme that were very implicit and explicit but it was a clear message to be found. DAMN does not have this so its quite confusing. So no overall theme and the songs don't really sound that good from lyrics to the producers beats. This is just a meh album. But a meh album for Kendrick is something a lot of rappers best could never be. If you haven't heard DAMN check it out and be the judge for yourself.

Kendrick Lamar is a rare talent. As someone who does not enjoy the majority of current mainstream hip hop, Kendrick is the exception for me. Each song feels uniquely crafted and shows much attention to detail. Each of his albums is a complete listening experience, rather than simply a compilation of random tracks pasted together. Common themes and sounds are repeated throughout the album making it one cohesive unit. His themes can be dark, and are not for those looking for a light, poppy listen. But, for fans of meaningful hip hop, I highly recommend this album.
