I like that first track. I couldn't find it on isohunt. PM me?Was mindlessly browsing the internet and stumbled across The Last Emperor... can't believe I'd never heard this dude before. Dope as ****.
Best concept song I've heard, not the original beat but probably just as good:
His first album, The Legend of Bigfoot, never got a release from Rawkus but luckily it's able to be easily tracked down on the net, highly recommended. Music, Magic, Myth is his only album and there's hardly a skippable track, ******* insane.
What are you not feeling about it?So i copped Good Kid, M.A.A.D City today and I just don't feel it...
Sounds very commericial. Kinda like a drunken love child of crunk and bling.
Dunno. I've tried to give it a go but I can't understand how this album can get rave reviews. People have been throwing the word "Classic" around like cheap confetti.
As an additional thought... Are people really loving this or is it cool to do so? Hipster Rap?
It's just my oppinion and of course everyone has different tastes in music. Personally I don't feel the flow, his voice, subject matter and the music in general. I respect that this album is a narrative, but that doesn't change the fact that "musically" I don't find it appealing.What are you not feeling about it?
The phrase 'Kinda like a drunken love child of crunk and bling.' sounds like you are missing the whole story/narrative Kendrick is trying to tell.
