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.

Excellent start to the album side of Lamar's career. Solid producing with many different aspects of music such as jazz. Great concept album, interesting story of the characters gathered around a campfire, whom are all born in the 80's. Lamar dedicates most of the songs to these characters and delves into their struggles, both male and female. Excellent lyricism, great producing but the hooks need some work. Great album.

This album is amazing. Plain and simple, it is a fantastic release. Fuck Your Ethnicity, ADHD, No Make-Up (Her Vice), The Spiteful Chant, Keisha's Song (Her Pain), Rigamortis, and Ab-Soul's Outro are the best tracks on this album. But to be honest, there aren't any bad songs, either. And HiiiPoWeR is one of my all-time favorite songs.
