The Dr. Dre backed rapper is getting hyped as a savior of West Coast hip hop. He released his first mixtape when he was 16, but it wasn’t until the last year’s Section.80 that all ears came to attention and set expectations high for the next record. It stuns. It’s an intensely autobiographical story of a 17 year old Lamar growing up in Compton. Woven in and out of scenes of family prayers, angry voicemails from mom, arguments in cars and gunfire, he covers relentless teenage lust, a struggling family, gang violence and dreams of money and power.On Freestyle he’s all confidence and his words my life all I want money and power / Respect my mind or die from lead shower strut over a clacking, bell ringing beat. Then there’s the 12 minute About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst, which has Lamar taking a serious, reflective tone: woke up this morning and figured I’d call you / In case I’m not here tomorrow, I’m hopin’ that I can borrow / A piece of mind, I’m behind on what’s really important.If anyone has noticed, they don’t seem to care, and rightfully so. The story’s conclusion comes with heavy realizations on but the album’s conclusion, (featuring Dre), is like a hero’s send off.Font ResizeReturn to TopWe reserve the right to remove any comment that violates our ground rules, is spammy, NSFW, defamatory, rude, reckless to the community, etc.We expect everyone to be respectful of other commenters.
