Who will be the first rap artist to strike hard in 2021? Will it be Kendrick Lamar, finally releasing the follow up we've all been asking for?

None of the copious features distract from his bars either and add accessibility like he hasn't had since his early career.

I have two (little) problems with this project though. FIrst, it's the features. Some of these artists just really don't fit it, not with Jones and not with the beat. Autotuned hooks just don't belong here. Second, Jones' lyrics aren't always top notch. ... read more
