A lyrical mastermind Kendrick Lamar has surpassed all speculation that his new album will be conceptually beautiful, well spoken and remembered for the ages. The album “To Pimp A Butterfly” was released March 16th, 2015. This artist never at any point of his career has ever let any other vision besides his own transpire to his work and it is apparent here. Kendrick is the voice of the new generation and even uses iconic artist of the past to draw us as the new listeners of today in. Using a fictionalized dialog between him and Tupac, Kendrick lamar on track “Mortal Man” makes man social remarks on the world, and has us once again immortalizing the Californian native hip hop artist Tupac.
Kendrick Lamar’s new album is vastly different from the previous not solely telling the story of how he grew up on the streets but voicing his opinion of what he wants to see in the future. Our favorite thing about this artist? How he is able not afraid to hold onto his true values and still top charts. We rent the only ones to think this artist has changed the game with his album, Taylor Swift, Kayne West and Justin Timberlake have sent their praises towards his way via Twitter. This album emits positivity, strength and has uplifting qualities, we are big fans of this talented artist and glad he is back.
