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.

Eminem
Music To Be Murdered By

One of hip-hop’s heavyweights, Eminem drops another surprise album, just like his clipped 2018 effort Kamikaze. Conceived of as a sort-of tribute to the great director Alfred Hitchcock, Music To Be Murdered By is a 20-track record, and came with a tweet from Marshall Mathers himself warning that there would “undoubtedly be quite a bit of controversy surrounding it”. No kidding, Em.

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 sounds like it's going to be a decent follow up.
