          • BgDikWhyteMan

            lmao do you type like that cause you think it’s cool ? Or are you really that fucking stupid ?

          • Manny

            lol if I dont get my white mexican ass off here what then hoe? I’m more real than you. You act like being black is exclusive or some shit. I’m telling you right now: be yourself bro. Nobody to impress but your mama and the man upstairs. You’re just as racist BITCH.

        • Manny

          I’m white and mexican. What are you going to do about it racist bitch? I provide for my family and spread peace. Does money mean everything when you could get killed anyday in a world like this? fuck you mean hoe

        • MNMx13

          Honestly, all of you need to worry about your own damn lives and stop bitching about who makes more money and who is a better person. That is pathetic. Maybe that’s why Kendrick made this album. To rap about all the nonsense you all argue about, like money and shit.

          • Manny

            says the one worrying about a convo between two irrelevant people online.

          • MNMx13

            same goes for you

          • Manny

            but I’m not a hypocrite about it. It was ironic

          • MNMx13

            yea true. Didn’t really mean it in an ironic way just meant to state that their argumnt is rediculous

          • Manny

            I think the same way about arguing in general. I say what I can to ignorant people knowing it most likely won’t get through to them and sometimes its petty, but it could provide insight for anyone else who sees what I say. Maybe I’m wrong on things, but I think I got a good head on my shoulders

          • MNMx13

            You couldn’t have said it any better. So true

        • LIke Whoa Bro

          You’re going to get popped if you keep advertising online that you sell drugs lol. May want to keep the streets in the streets or you’ll be making license plates bro.

          • LIke Whoa Bro

            but yeah this album sucks…. It’s like talib kweli had sex with PHISH and this is what came out

            if 0 = bad song, almost unlistenable

            1 = good, legit, song

            This album is like 3/13

          • YungShootaDaGod

            damn nigga who is u the fuckin police i never said i do shit. for all u kno i can be a wall st worker. u dont kno me bruh. i never did a crime in my life nigga lol.

          • BgDikWhyteMan

            lmao Wallstreet worker my ass, maybe a Wallstreet Janitor, and I knew you weren’t about that life fuck nigga, go listen to Migos so you can fantasize about a street life you know nothing about.

          • YungShootaDaGod

            come to newark u coward n say that shit but oh u wont beacuse u a whiteboy pussy n stay on the computer u computer ass nigga. niggas kno me i show my face n even told niggas where i stay at so if they got a real problem they can get dealt with . gay ass whiteboys thinkin this online shit a joke til they get bodied.

          • BgDikWhyteMan

            lol come to shit hole Newark just to prove you are a pussy ass nigga, Nah, but if you come to Baltimore and waste your gas, I’ll show you what this street life is really about, Migos wouldn’t even come to my area, niggas heard there was goons plotting and they went straight to their hotel after their show, didn’t even pop into the club they were scheduled to visit, niggas scared, and you will learn they were right to be scared if you get off Mom’s couch and pay me a visit.

          • Gritty Smitty

            Man your just some wussy black dude getting 2 much sun all the damn time. Straight ass nigger, go fuck some pussy

          • DumbassNigga

            kill yourself please.

          • BgDikWhyteMan

            lol and your name has Shoota in it, FOH suburban ass nigga

          • Sam Toliver

            A wall st. broker knows how to spell right

          • LIke Whoa Bro

            nah just trying to save you from yourself yo

        • Rick

          You’re not a for real person, right? All this shit is written by pretentious black kids.

    • BgDikWhyteMan

      I agree the album is Wack, but J Cole’s new shit was a fucking classic
      You clearly like fuck boy faggot rappers like Young Thug and Migos bitch nigga.

      • Vee Tha Ja Rula

        I like J Cole and Migos…does that make me a fuck boy?

        • BgDikWhyteMan

          half a fuck boy, yes

          • Vee Tha Ja Rula

            Damn, I’ll take the L

      • YungShootaDaGod

        smh nigga u a white so u dont even get where niggas like migos coming from. migos real af n make fuckin bagners not some lame ass bullshit that be puttin niggas to sleep like j cole real tlk. young thug a fagget tho so i dont fuck with that nigga. like i said that j cole shit for whites.

        • BgDikWhyteMan

          lol I’m white so i don’t know about the struggle ? Fuck you are beyond stupid dumb nigga.

    • BmoreTrue

      This album is not for white people at all nigga…listen to it again, and pay attention to his words not the production

    • Randy Carter

      you obviously ain’t no “stock broker” (nigga said “WALL st WORKER”) this Album is for niggas just like you… all u see is your world u just another nigga break that chain homie

      • YungShootaDaGod

        my chain costed $4800 nigga n fuck a white man chains i aint nobody slave. u never see me work for no white. i make my own way in this damn world n make more money then the white boss. fuck niggas like u wanna to see black niggas be slaves to these whites n work they white jobs n dress n act like whites. fuck that bullshit my nigga. i stay real af to my death n aint gonna change for no body n act like some fuckin white.

        • Randy Carter

          see what i mean i say break da chain and only response u came with was how much your chain is… Shoota is a dumb nigga who thinks whips and chains makes him a better man the same shit u spent on a chain could have bought some lil nigga some shoes on his feet… Who u pay for your chain NIGGA… i call ppl like you bought niggas your mind is stuck in its ways your content with what you are feed

    • Can’t wait for 30 years when niggas like you don’t exist anymore RIP you close minded simple muthafucka

  • Vee Tha Ja Rula

    I thought this was a great piece of work. An amazing project overall…just not reall “enjoyable”. No doubt this project has more substance than GKMC, but GKMC still has hella replay value in the car.

  • Light Dat Blunt

    Niggas gonna stay in the gutter if they wanna hear shoot the club up, get money, fuck bitches all the time, being dumb aint cool. Modern Hip Hop is separating the Opened Minded people From the Closed Minded people thanks to people like Kendrick & J. Cole.

    • Christian Fox

      I dont think it’s that. I think it’s different ways to portray a message other than slowing things down and putting jazz in the background. The first time i listen to an album im trying to see how aesthetically pleasing it is. Replayability is based on how often you can continue listening to the song after you know the words and analyze them and i can see myself listening to this for a long period of time like Section.80 or Friday Night Lights.

    • TheREalMVP

      you can still make real statements while having a dope beat and an overall catchy song: why he gotta have the entire album be jazz shit. Maad City was so great cause it went hard at times (maad city, backstreet freestyle) and chill at others (bitch dont kill my vibe) u cant have an entire album be good if its all fucking mellow jazz

      • Double-Axe Digital Recordings

        100

  • Light Dat Blunt

    Album is not even bad. Niggas so worried about money & they don’t even know where money came from & please don’t say the Bank.

    • CLOVER•

      Word , that whole money shit is a scam the only thing with real value is gold

      • nima houshmandi

        Why is gold valuable? It has almost no use outside of jewellery. It is simply a common story we have all agreed to but logically there is no reason for its value.

        • Blaze Dragonblade

          Gold doesn’t rust, plus when you think about it there isn’t much of gold in the world.

        • CLOVER•

          Thats what I’m saying about the paper currency – gold is used for everything -do some home work

          • nima houshmandi

            I agree with you about the paper currency.. However, I am taking it a step further with Gold. I have done my homework and gold wasn’t used for aerospace or electronic items thousands of years ago was it… So why was it worth so much? It’s an illusion, just the same with the value for LV, Gucci, Jordans, etc. If only society as a whole could see through the bullshit

          • CLOVER•

            Bro i thinks its valuable because of its rarity to find it out there-i mean i understand what you are saying nima and i dont want to contadict it bro but it wires down to us ,our greed.personally chief i think the world is set up in a way where its like a domino effect.

  • Tony319

    I feel like this album is going over a lot of niggas heads, sure it’s nothing to ride to but it’s definitely a game changer and something that needed to be made. And what the fuck kind of review is this? I knew it was bullshit as soon as she called the blacker the berry a weak point. The only real complaint is that the album is so deep and complex that it requires multiple listenings to fully understand the concepts? Gtfoh.

    • BmoreTrue

      Agreed this is a shit review and this will definitely go over the simple minded type that listen to an album once and call it wack..I love this album

    • Flavio Lima

      Nothing to ride to? I can ride to “Momma” all day nigga. It is a really good and chilled album with a great message to society.

    • B Freetunechi Smith

      Exactly, although I will definitely be riding to ‘Alright’ all this weekend.. But that’s exactly what I said he completely shook up the game with this

    • AlexBlanks

      Because it’s hip hop. not spoken-word-pretentious-message-Hop. Give him poet props, dont give him emcee props because those skills and abilities are not in his repertoire.

      Artist? Sure. Ill emcee? GTFO!

  • Raymond Stillabostoncelticsfan

    Kendrick cold shit if you listing to the album its a lot of hidden messages that simple minded people won’t get its more to rap then that street shit

  • mack

    This album suck real bad its only a couple songs thats really good. Dont get me wrong kendrick is lyical but this album is the worse one yet. Cole album is better big sean album is better

  • sosarozay300

    a lot of people wont like this because its not the type of stuff you bump riding in the hood, this is that real shit

    • YungShootaDaGod

      nigga that shit real to whites n fuckin lame niggas. no real niggas is fuckin with this gay ass bullshit real tlk.

      • Rick

        Go to any gangster rap show, half the crowd is white dudes. Black kids buy pop rap in overwhelming numbers.

  • imafreshnigga

    Let’s be honest. This is not what we was expectin. Yea he sayin some real shit. But if I wanted a jazz cd I’ll go cop Jill scott. 2 stars for the effort

    • BmoreTrue

      Give it more than one listen…he deserves more than 2 stars

  • Frank White

    I mean…I’m not gonna lie yea he was sayin some real shit I guess..it kinda got boring tho..People always like..”Oh u not smart enough to get it”…not realizing that there are levels to this rap shit and some rappers rap one dimensionally…kool deep lyrics, but some beats sound like the producer was like “Man fuck my job”..like it’s more to rap than just lyrics…that’s why cassidy don’t put no more albums out…

  • BmoreTrue

    Imo any time you hear some different shit that you weren’t expecting you should always give it multiple listens, your brain is automatically going to tell you something is wack if it’s not what you were expecting, re listen to the album knowing what to expect so you can focus on what he’s saying. This album is too complex to skim through it once and give it a fair review.

    • Frank White

      u might be right man…I think ima give it another chance

    • B Freetunechi Smith

      Yep and KDot is all about cohesion and the story. There is no way you can get the whole story from one listen

  • Dark_Vibe97

    The album is that start of the black revolution we’ve been waiting for. Its part two of hip-hop’s golden age and only the real artists will survive. True fans would see this album isn’t geared toward whites, its about elevating blacks to an even higher level and broadening what we can talk about and how we can sound. If you want repetitive dumb shit to turn up too thats why we have Drake.

  • Randy Carter

    THE conversation with pac was powerful see i a few years ago The Game was 2pac reincarnated it might just be kendric

  • DaQuanX

    This finna be fire

    • YungShootaDaGod

      na

      • DaQuanX

        Idk bruh

  • LIke Whoa Bro

    If I wanted to feel something deep, I’d read a book or take a college course… I’m not blasting beats to hear that. Although I guess some people wouldn’t hear things like this if it wasn’t put to music– which is sad.

  • xxthoughtxx

    its an ode back to Jungle brothers, De la Soul, Tribe called Quest, Xclan and Public Enemy , its pretty good, nothing different from early 90s hiphop, this new generation needs this though,

  • BlackSquare

    After multiple listens, here it goes. This album is ass meat. It sucks that artist can’t seem to follow the formula that brought them genuine praise. Not Big Sean ass meat but ass meat. Krit delivered, Cole delivered so I’m good.

  • nima houshmandi

    Lyrically and the message of the album are on point but it’s difficult for me to enjoy it sonically.

  • anonymous

    This album fucking sucks.

  • anonymous

    You call this a most anticipated hip hop album of 2015? Do yourselves a favor, and pay the 99¢ for the Drake album

  • John Frias

    G.K.M.C. All day over this album. Maybe one or two good songs on TPAB. he tried to hard with this one. Good kid was him just actually rapping and no one in his ear. Kinda sad cause he has way more talent then these Mickey mouse rappers.
