Beats Per Minute

It’s all about the moment, and Section.80 is about as relevant as it gets.

Section.80 still stands as a powerful document of a tremendously promising young guy figuring out his voice.

The Needle Drop
Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar doesn't follow the usual tough and hardened stereotypes that come with repping the California city. The guy isn't a wimp, but he's more interested in saying something thought-provoking than violent.
