CRITIC REVIEWS

Beats Per Minute

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

Pitchfork

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.

AllMusic

Kendrick's conceptual aptitude is part of what makes him stand out, but he thrives most at relating defiance in dealing with his circumstances.

Good

Although it's not something that I would return to as a whole, Kendrick's 'Section.80' is a solid and powerful debut record. He states his political views in a unique and creative front, while presenting some chill production in the background. His best is yet to come in the timeline.

Color: Purple
FAV TRACKS: The Spiteful Chant, Ronald Reagan Era, Hol' Up, HiiiPower, Kush and Corinthians
LEAST FAV: Chapter Ten, A.D.H.D

A few cringey hooks weigh this project down but on the whole this is a good album

My only issue with this project comes from some of the choruses. Besides that it’s an incredible conscious hip hop album
