The album gave fans a number of notable tracks, especially songs like “FEAR.,” where Kendrick explores three different periods of his life at ages 7, 17, and 27.

"what happens on earth stays on earth.. I can't take these feelings with me so hopefully they disperse" sounds like the concept of nirvana.. kendrick is a bodhisattva

I never put a comment on any videos I watch. But this video is educational for me that I feel, i have attended a UNI class for true hiphop lecture on Kendrick Lamar album(favourite ever). I prefer this than my UNI English literature lectures to write my lyrics

Kendrick was dropping jewels on this album. He was trying to tell black people that they are the lost children of Israel. This goes over most people heads. Nas did the same thing back in 96 with It Was Written and again in 2001 with Stillmatic. I respect the hell out of Kendrick for this.

I wish they analyzed to pimp a butterfly like this not Genius but just those in general I’m no Stan but that truly was a divine piece of work that is overlooked but fortunately means less hype-trends and more room for the respect of the realism behind the craft.

It's about time that hip hop gets the recognition it deserves. People disregard hip hop as music and at time using racist words in their description of rap. Kendrick Lamar is well deserving a lyrical genius just like great poets throughout history. Hip hop has world wide appeal and is the most played music genre in the world.

Honestly i love kendrick lamar but i’ll never understand how he got to the status he is. If rap wasn’t so fucked up this is what we would expect from all our artists. Im not saying he’s not dope cuz he is but i just think if we didn’t allow so many wack artists to get success than someone being as dope as kendrick wouldn’t seem that unusual.
