I'm like eight songs in, but this clearly a tier below gkmc, sect.80 and overly dedicated imo.

I liked it on my first listen but didn't really soak it all in. I'm going to listen too it again either later on tonight or tomorrow morning.

Will take me a while to get a verdict. I didn't like section 80 or GKMC initially but then I completely flipped and they've been in my playlist still.

The music is nice. Going to need to digest the lyrics.

I'm 11 songs in and I absolutely love it so far. The sound is so smooth and it flows from song to song extremely well. It'll be polarizing, but my first impression is that it seems like an awesome progression for Kendrick.

Really like Hood politics. love the music like others here, I can see that it might not appeal to people looking for more hip-hop styled album.

I'm feeling this album.

"i" makes much more sense now hearing it in context.

Da JAZZ
Da FUNK
Da lyricism.
MMMMM....



Glad someone of Kendricks stature in the game is willing to stand up and make a deep/conscious semi political album and actually say something without having to revert to same drug/money/women rhetoric this culture seems to be obsessed with.

Quote:
“The caterpillar is a prisoner to the streets that conceived it
Its only job is to eat or consume everything around it, in order to protect itself from this mad city
While consuming its environment the caterpillar begins to notice ways to survive
One thing it noticed is how much the world shuns him, but praises the butterfly
The butterfly represents the talent, the thoughtfulness, and the beauty within the caterpillar
But having a harsh outlook on life the caterpillar sees the butterfly as weak and figures out a way to pimp it to his own benefits
Already surrounded by this mad city the caterpillar goes to work on the cocoon which institutionalizes him
He can no longer see past his own thoughts
He’s trapped
When trapped inside these walls certain ideas start to take roots, such as going home, and bringing back new concepts to this mad city
The result?
Wings begin to emerge, breaking the cycle of feeling stagnant
Finally free, the butterfly sheds light on situations that the caterpillar never considered, ending the eternal struggle
Although the butterfly and caterpillar are completely different, they are one and the same."

Can't really define it. Suppose I mean to say this sounds different to pretty much anything I've heard lately, it's unconventional in a lot of places.

Kinda hope we get a studio version of the "Untitled" track he did on Colbert. Maybe on the deluxe edition (Assuming there is one)?

Some corny stuff on here, some meh verses (and dude needs to stop the high pitched helium eminem rapping), but some dope tracks like Momma, These Walls, etc. Sounds like a less musical impressive version of Black Messiah had a baby with How I Got Over .

Edit: also can't be the only person who heard the first part of Institutionalized, turned it off, and then went and played
