We Cry Together is unreal (and real) as hell geez. No idea Taylour Paige could flow like that.

Father Time, the end to Auntie Diaries on first listens...amazing.

Appreciate Kendrick being this popular but never phoning it in.

Not seen him (was too lazy to see him at Coachella in 2012 :'() but I’ve had friends say he isn’t amazing live and generally I find hip hop doesn’t translate that well in concert.
His tour in 2016 for TPAB was fantastic. Had a live band playing all of the jazzy stuff from that album, was a great night out.

In comparison, his 2018 tour for DAMN was a bit more of a stock standard concert for a rap artist.

Tossing up whether to get tickets for Kendrick - I've listened to his new album once through but it didn't really grab me like GKMC or TPAB did and doesn't have standout tracks like DAMN.

Plus I've been to hip hop concerts before and it hasn't been great (notably Snoop Dogg at Rod Laver).

Mr Morale & The Big Steppers is the kind of album you listen to alone in an arm chair with a scotch (or in a car alone with an open beverage, if you want a more relatable experience), I can't imagine it's going to be the most spectacular live performance - could be it translates into more of a best hits program.

Yeah it's not the kind of album you can really dance around to - I'm sure it will grow on me, but the beats are much different to his earlier stuff.
