Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
100
I keep returning to this album once or so every year when life is feeling painful. There's not much to say about this album that hasn't been said, so let me add this: the hype this album gets is fitting. It weaves complex ideas with masterful storytelling, using Kendrick's life as an example of how America pimps the black person. In this review, I'm going to break down the story, give a track-by-track review, and also explain a lot of influences and unique sounds that went into this ... read more

Kendrick Lamar - DAMN.

This album is by far Kendrick's most intriguing and dissectable. Though there are moments of flaw, this solid tracklist reaffirms Kendrick's seat at the table.

I feel that, due to the nature of this album, a track-by-track review is a good way to explain my feelings on this project. This was written as I listened, so don't crucify me if there are grammatical errors or disjointed ideas.

Average Score: 87.6

Nas is truly the GOAT, and this solidifies it. No one in the game has stayed relevant for 30 years, much less released music of this quality.

It's not as bad as revival, I guess. Kind of a low bar though. Never knew something so loud and angry could put me to sleep that fast.
Eminem - Music To Be Murdered By

Developing a mediocre album over a long tracklist is something Eminem has been doing for a while. His last two projects were his worst by far, and this one doesn't fare too much better. It's not terrible, a handful of solid tracks, great features, and generally ok production manage to keep this album afloat in a sea of shitty punchlines and quick, obnoxious flows. Everything here is a step up, but it doesn't result in a good album.
