    Kendrick Lamar has done fairly well doing loosely based concept albums. But would you want another concept album or just a bunch of dope a--- songs crammed onto a album that just bump.

    I feal like a concept can actually hurt the music. Example “cartoons and cereal” was left off of GKMC because it didn’t fit the concept. Just think of how many more songs of that level we will never hear because it didn’t fit the concept of an album.

    concept albums are best otherwise you might as well just drop singles

    He should do concepts only for albums and use ep like UU and Black Panther for solo songs,.

    UU is a concept album.


    People often confuse concept album with a storytelling album lmao

    As someone said the song did fit the concept and he actually really liked the song and thought it was like the best on there but it just didn't get cleared in time or at all, and every artist has some sort of concept, but to the point to where if you care about a concept you can examine and analyze and if you don't, you can still listen, sorta like analyzing movies, you can still watch em but there are concepts and stuff in there
