Who else on the forum listens to Kendrick? What are your thoughts on his music? 

I personally think Kendrick has two contemporary classics behind him with good kid, M.a.A.D city and To Pimp A Butterfly. I highly recommend those two albums to those who haven't heard them: the lyrics are thoughtful and wise, eloquently covering topics like alcoholism, gang violence and racism. The music is also fantastic, Kendrick's backing music is basically avant garde jazz. 

¡No pasarán!

I've still only played the first 2-3 tracks off Butterfly and I bought it in 2016 but I did really like those first couple. I swear I'm gonna give that album a full playing soon - I'd do it right now but I just moved and it's in a box somewhere a floor below 🙁

If you like jazz I would give some of his songs a go however. But I didn't like rap myself until I really started branching out with my music taste, so I understand.

To Pimp a Butterfly is an incredible album and i'm not particularly into rap music. It has elements of jazz, funk and more. 

I'm not too keen on his latest album Damn, it's a lot more mainstream and less creative imo. His albums prior to Pimp a Butterfly are also great though. 

Since listening to Kendrick i've been a lot more open about rap music and now I quite like alternative hip hop.

Found it! Misalphabetized. Gonna listen later today when I have a chance..

EDIT: Very interesting album! I especially like the jazzy bits. Dude is talented. Too bad for me, this is one of those dense, complex hip-hop related LPs that are hard for me to concentrate on fully, cause I'm largely stuck forever in a 1982-92 old-school mindset, as far as rap goes.

Agreed. TPAB is easily the best album of 2015 and will definitely be among the best of the decade. GKMC is a close second, but I'm not all that keen on DAMN and Section 80 aside from the singles. Kendrick is the only non 90s rapper I really listen to though.

Yep i'm not too keen on Damn and Section 80, TPAB is on another level. 

I don't really listen to rappers per se but i'm trying to get more into alternative hip-hop.

I'd recommend Madvillain and Death Grips.

I like hip hop when it's a bit jazzy/funky/experimental.
