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.

Section 80 cemented Kendrick's status as rap's next big thing. But the record itself isn't without its flaws. The production for the most part is terrific but there are definitely some throwaway tracks. The bars aren't quite at the level that we're all used to from Kendrick and neither is his flow. What this is is a very solid debut album.

Best Tracks: Fuck Your Ethnicity, Hol' Up, ADHD, Ronald Reagan Era, Keisha's Song, HiiiPower
Worst Tracks: Tammy's Song
