Kendrick Lamar - Poetic Justice (Official Video) Nothing more really needs to be said.
Je l'attendais comme le messie, la vidéo de « Backseat Freestyle » est enfin sortie. L'un des meilleurs morceaux du meilleur album rap de l'année 2012 s'illustra en vidéo pour débuter l'année 2013 sur de bonnes bases. On doit cette réalisation à Jerome D, Dave Free & Kendrick Lamar himself, ils se sont même payé le luxe de valser entre LA et Paris à l'occasion de ce freestyle haut en basse.
2012 was a great year for hip-hop. While many big names dropped much awaited albums the best surprises for me came from younger, lesser known talent such as Angel Haze, Joey Badass and Earl Sweatshirt. Amongst them, Kendrick Lamar definitely stands apart, and 2012 probably wouldn't have been as good if it wasn't for his astonishingly [...]
Day 4 of our 4-day countdown of the best of the year. Part 1 (80-61) can be found here . Part 2 (60-41) can be found here . Part 3 (40-21) can be found here . To recap: AlbatRoss and I had 2 guidelines that we stuck to in compiling this list: 1) it had to be rap (meaning no R&B - Frank Ocean and Miguel had killer years but they won't be found on this list) and 2) one song per project on the list. We did this (including honorable mentions, of course) to make sure we brought a [...]
When Kendrick Lamar decided to call his major label debut (and second album overall) a short film, he didn't do it lightly. It is a daunting task to undertake the creation of a story album with singles that both fit in with the story arc and can play on the radio with zero context, and as all of us have seen, far too many bands and artists have attempted it half-heartedly. But this is no cop-out - isn't some half-baked rock opera or album narrative just for narrative's sake. Even more importantly, it isn't a self-absorbed and self-loathing [...]
Get ready to lose your goddamn mind rap fans, because in case you have been living under an anti-hiphop rock, Kendrick Lamar released a new album good kid, m.A.A.d. city , and it is on fire. I have always found Lamar a little hit and miss, but this album is getting amazing reviews and after a few listens, I would agree that this is some of his best work to date. With this album he has cemented himself as the new voice of the west coast scene. In it Lamar channels the [...]

Kendrick Lamar - good kid, m.A.A.d. city Interscope Records / Aftermath Entertainment: 2012 First things first: good kid, m.A.A.d. city , Kendrick Lamar ’s debut album on Aftermath/Interscope records, is unequivocally awesome. But you already knew that. Since the MC’s unconventionally great Section.80 (2011), Kendrick has become the new Holy Ghost of rap music for this decade. His intricate rhyme schemes and complex layers of thought flow through the headphones of backpackers and stick-up kids alike. Through the rattling sound system of the busted Camry on [...]

Lamar started performing "Compton" and then Dre emerged for his verse as the crowd went berserk. Then he stuck around for their other tag team from the LP, "The Recipe." Dre hasn't [...]
Discovering Section 80 recently (yes I know, I'm late to the (after) party), it's obvious Kendrick Lamar has star (hiii) power,something that's been debatably missing on the West Siiiide for a while. Touring now on the BET Music Matters tour with fellow Black Hippy members Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, I knew this show would be dope from the gate. Seeing Black Hippy at Rock The Bells over the summer, these three each and collectively deliver something different. [...]

A while back, my dude B-Nease, aka the Black Kevin Arnold, put up a Tweet about his mom asking him who Kendrick Lamar was. His reply: “The best rapper in the world.” Not since Ice Cube could the West Coast lay claim to the best rapper on the planet. Nobody was touching Ice Cube when Amerikkka’s Most Wanted and Death Certificate were causing pants-soiling fear across suburban America. Nobody was safe during Ice Cube’s prime: not the police, government, former friends from N.W.A, or the activator section at Walgreen’s. The East Coast, fiercely protective of its [...]
Kendrick Lamar teams up with Dr. Dre again for another new track off his upcoming album good kid m.A.A.d city coming out October 22nd , which is exectuively produced by Dr. Dre himself. This is the first album that Dre has exectively produced since The Game, and before that 50 Cent, and before that Eminem. This is going to be what makes Kendrick a household name. We've also included the first collaboration with Dre on "The Recipe". Their chemistry is incredible, and shines through on both tracks. It's no joke [...]
