    "Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is amazing! It's one of the best hip-hop albums ever. He tells stories through lyrics that ooze meaning and anger. While most of Kendrick's contemporaries brag about living the thug life, Kendrick exposes the harsh life of those who actually live in impoverished, criminally-inclined black communities. This is what REAL music is! "

    "The best Kendrick Lamar album and personally the best rap album ever made. To Pimp a Butterfly is like a fiery assault to the senses. Lyrically, it's his best to date. All the songs are politically charged, centering on the black community and what it's like to live in the ghettos. A true rap masterpiece and a modern classic!"

    "Mr. Lamar is the savior of hip-hop. At such a young age his discography is both prolific and outstanding. Untitled Unmastered continues his winning streak. This concept album is transcendent. This is what Kanye (trash) thinks he is doing. A+"

    "What a phenomenal album. Duckworth is my favorite. It's such a beautiful song. DNA is quite catchy. Of course, the radios have overplayed Humble but it's still a bop. Loyalty feat. Rihanna is awesome. Almost every song is a masterpiece!"

    "It's a shame not a lot of people heard about this album. It's more melodic and experimental and less hip-hop flavored. Is It Love feat. Angela Mccluskey is my favorite."

    "This mixtape is clearly heavily influenced by Jay Z and Lil Wayne. He's also a little cocky here and kinda generic sounding. Not his best but still good enough."
