iTunes Review

This is the mixtape where the Compton wordsmith’s talents began to bloom. The speed and hairpin turns of Kendrick's flow were already in place, along with early appearances of his penchant for manipulated and pitched-down vocals on “P&P 1.5.” But Lamar also wore his influences on his sleeve more plainly at 23, and it’s a kick to hear him channel Lil Wayne on “Michael Jordan” and JAY Z on “Average Joe.”

We have another hip hop diamond on our hands.

His rhyming skills are very unique and versatile. He has intelligent lyrics combined with an edgy, emotional flow. So much passion, excitement, pain and truth to his words. My favorite rappers are people like Lupe Fiasco, MF DOOM, Blu, Nas, Andre 3000, Little Brother, Jay Electronica, Curren$y and Kanye. So when I listen to such a diverse blend of rappers it's hard for me to find a new mc that stands out. Someone who brings truth. Well that someone is Kendrick Lamar. He's dope, he's rare, he's legendary. Thank you Hip-Hop for blessing us with another true emcee. Now you can go to sleep, just don't sleep on Kendrick Lamar. Support this emcee, buy this album.
