I finally listed to all of Section 80... and I must say, it is the BEST album I've heard all year. I am ashamed at myself for waiting so long lol. But I always see you post you insights on Kendrick Lamar and I listened to a few tracks cuz of you (HiiPower, Rigamortus) but this past Thanksgiving break, I've been bumpin that album nonstop.
Great album! Thanks for the good looks on the new music.

You should never mess with a man and his lisp. Getting back on topic, I've been listening to Kendrick Lamar for the past few months. He's easily cracked my list of top 5 underrated rappers. Here's my favorite song from him, partly because he put one of my favorite poets (Lamont Carey) on the end of the track.
Glad I could help encourage you to give it a full listen I May Be Wrong.
When I first started listening to him, I didn't know what to think either. He isn't the type to produce bangers that people are gonna be bumpin in their cars tryina get attention. His album is a complete journey, a story of his life. Living in a struggle out in Compton, but trying to maintain righteousness despite all the negativity that surrounds you. Once you start to give his stuff a full listen, detailing his lyricism and craft, then you easily become entrapped in it. Awesome for him not to follow the path of all the typical Compton product rappers repping gangs and &$#%#&@!. He acknowledges the existance of them, but shows how you can make something of yourself without becoming a stereotypical product of the ghetto.
I cannot wait to hear more from him in the future. If you like him, I suggest checking his career out before he changed his stage name to his birth name. Prior to Kendrick Lamar it was K.Dot.
Check out A Little Appalled...amazing song with a tight beat. Listen to every word, this track talks about his life just as I displayed it for you. Love this dude's music and realness.
rSharpe...are u from Philly? Jw wit your use of jawn.
Rigamortis is dope. You could pick a number of tracks on this album as your favorite, my personal favorite is still HiiiPower but Kush & Corinthians and Rigamortis r climbing too. Section. 80 is just so deep, something missing on alot of today's albums.
Most of todays rap albums have so much filler BS. Props to K.Dot and J Cole for avoiding that for the most part. Although that track where Cole talks bout getting arrested just after his signing was pretty cheesy.
Nah I'm from New York Lol. I just like using the word jawn. But I as well enjoyed Section 80. Dope lyrics, dope beats, dope concepts, what else could you want in a hip-hop album?
haha close enough man I get people thinkin my accent is from NY all the time. Its gotta be a tri-city thing, except them Jersey folk take it to another level.
Hey. Don't tawk bad about Jersey.

It’s too early to tell how good Waiters will be right away, but here's what we think we know: He’s a streaky shooter from the perimeter, he can get to the basket practically at will, and as coach Byron Scott said, “he can go over the top” of defenders once there. Overall, he's looking pretty good.
