iTunes Review

Section.80 introduced much of the world to Kendrick Lamar, an introverted Compton native with a unique voice and an unusual talent for rendering his world both in close-up and from a bird's-eye view. His technical mastery is immediately apparent: check his double-time flow over hyperactive horns on “Rigamortus”. Even more agile is Lamar’s racing mind, which leaps from empathetic love songs (“No Make-Up”) to ruminations on childhood in the crack era (“A.D.H.D.”), and even—over the melancholy jazz breaks of “Kush & Corinthians”—his own personal contradictions.

Kendrick's Hiiii Power in Full Power.

I've long since been a fan of Kendrick Lamar, I feel that his 2009 release, the Kendrick Lamar EP, was one of the best releases of the same year. He has an honesty on the mic that is enviable to other emcee's given his location (Compton) and social commentary about that and himself as he looks to discover and question the world.

On Section 80, Lamar displays his flows on Hiii Power throughout, flowing over more familiar production whilst extending his production to the likes of J. Cole and RZA. This helps to add to the quality of Section 80 as Kendrick Lamar begins to take his craft to the next level. From tracks like the Ronald Reagan Era where Kendrick boasts 'You ain't heard nothing like this since Daddy Kane'. Whilst far-fetched it's an example of the confidence shown by Kendrick as he continues to show off his penmanship on tracks like 'Keisha's Song', which is a hood tale of a woman's pain with a great hook from Ashtro Bot, which may have once seemed an unlikely collab.

I could discuss in detail about all tracks on this album, the only weaker tracks, in my opinion, being Rigamortus and Blow My High after the first four listens... but that's not to say that others don't like those tracks.

Overall, we all need to 'Hol' Up' and listen to Kendrick, he's the biggest thing coming out of the West (arguably) and the world is at his feet. Let's hope he continues, but at the minute, he's 3 from 3 under his Government name and this is an easy recommendation at £5.99. Do yourself a favour and cop it now!

Album given 5*****'s due to it being classed as 'great'. But it's more a 4/5 release in terms of real world ratings. It's not the next classic. Just a fantastic release.

Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated rapper Kendrick Lamar is one of the rare artists who has achieved critical and commercial success while earning the respect and support of those who inspired him. A native of Compton, California, Lamar originally rapped as K. Dot and released a series of mixtapes under that name. Youngest Head Nigga in Charge (2003), issued when he was only 16 years old, caught the attention of Top Dawg Entertainment and led to a long-term association that helped raise the rapper's...
