    Holy cringe, s--- album. Especially for a guy that works on albums for like 6 years. No one wants to hear about his family problems.

    Die Hard is the best track on the album, such a great song.

    Maybe, but I really love the sound, especially from the chorus.

    Once the Yankees fully choke and collapse in September (as they always do) I may have a surprise mixtape coming out. Do you really play this album out loud? Listening to Kendrick’s very simple problems that aren’t threatening, just basic life issues. In a week no one will talk about this project. Just like all his albums except good kid mad city, that’s 10 years old worm. Kendrick hasn’t made a classic or upper tier album in 10 f---ing years. He’s one of those people extremely outdated in todays society.

    Even 69’s recent song got more views, attention, number one trending for days but Kendrick can’t. Imagine losing the rap game to a rat. If Kendrick can’t do the numbers a rat can, he’s finished. This is even worse than Harlow’s project tbh.

    This site really made me lose hope in people's critical thinking skills and their sense of quality.

    I know some of it is trolling but it's still concerning lmao

    N95 and Father Time are my favorites after a couple of listens

    I still can't get through Disc 2 after the first listen on release day and I've tried

    I prefer d--- and GKMC honestly, let's just not fall into the whole "Either complete trash or undeniable classic" bs, why can't an album just be ok?

    I think I prefer disc 2 cause of the last few songs, and disc 1 has die hard and purple hearts and those songs haven't really clicked with me.

    It's growing on me fast. As an album, I much prefer It over TPAB or d---, even though only N95 and Rich Spirit can compete with the heights of those two. Not a masterpiece but a very good album. I hope he will release another one soon not to overthink things. Now that he is no longer a savior, I mean, he doesn't need to make "perfect albums" for 5 years, right?

    It's a good album, feels like he kinda dialed back the music though to make it more centered towards the themes and messages. Not like stripped back, but less musically creative. Wanted him to kinda go in a new bag, like new sounds and stuff, but this is more like a blend of some of the previous things he did. Definitely see the Pablo comparisons.

    Why do artists say they have x amount of unreleased material. But never release the material. Like I don’t get the point of making that much music for people not to hear it . Kendrick took a 5 year hiatus but has claimed to have thousands of unreleased songs . He could of been releasing projects the entire time lol
