Kendrick Lamar
GOOD KID, m.A.A.d CITY

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City was the major label debut from soon-to-be-pretty-big rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was an introduction in more ways than one as it was a concept LP about Lamar's upbringing in the 'hood. Lyrically complex with sub-plots and red herrings galore it featured a more subtle production that has often been seen in hip-hop with brooding instrumentals and deep atmospherics leading to both underground and commercial accolades.    

Kendrick Lamar
DAMN. (Collector's Edition)

Hailed by many as the greatest hip-hop album of 2017 by an artist Q magazine once called “The greatest rapper of his generation”. The Collector's Edition of Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN.' switches up the tracklist, flipping it on its head, to be heard as the artist originally envisaged. There aren't any new tracks on this edition, just a different running order and alternate artwork. "Just remember, what happens on Earth stays on Earth / We gon' put it in reverse"

Kendrick Lamar
DAMN.

The biggest of big deals in 2017: a new full-length album from Kendrick Lamar himself. Damn features fairly large guests like Rihanna and, um, U2, but Kendrick doesn’t need any big-name support to tell a narrative and craft wonderful beats. This soon-to-be-album-of-the-year record is released by Polydor.

Kendrick Lamar
untitled unmastered.

Kendrick Lamar throws out a surprise companion set to his much-loved To Pimp A Butterfly album from last year. untitled unmastered is a set of 8 outtakes from that record’s sessions, many of them carrying an especially jazzy vibe. Not everything sounds fully finished, but that’s the fascination: we get to hear Lamar in the midst of his creative process. Minimally-packaged CD release on Interscope.

Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly

I'm not sure about pimping a butterfly but Kendrick Lamar certainly knows the smooth. Sampling and influenced by the '70s greats of Parliament, Clinton (George not me) and Marvin Gaye, he twists black anger into new and danceable shapes. Challenging at times but a remarkable follow up to 2012's 'Good Kid, M.A.A.d City' and a key album in Compton's strong hip hop legacy.
