I will not make the mistake on skipping out on a Kendrick concert this time around. My biggest regret is still not going to Kunta groove sessions

PRIDE the underrated song on this project.

King Kendrick delivered though

My favorite track at the moment. The Anna Wise vocals are too good

Loyalty is the underrated one for me, seems like it's the one people dislike the most so far. I can't get enough of that beat (which sounds like a sample from the intro of 24K Magic to me).

LOYALTY LOYALTY LOYALTY

LOYALTY has me asking all sorts of existential questions

this is a new level of production and insight into the human genome my friends, we have crossed dimensions

really?! that's the 2nd song I had to go back to and listen after i finished the whole album. the beat, that hook, i can't stop screaming it baby:

loyalty Loyalty LOYALTY

PRIDE is so fucking smooth. It kind of rolls like Redbone in a way.

Agreed. A melodic masterpiece.

PRIDE has got to be one of the frontrunners for me right now.

Came to this subreddit to find this comment. Nobody else is talking about how fucking good this song is.

I'll have an opinion on this album after I look at all of the comments on r/hhh

You're gonna have to wait. Mods have been locking big [FRESH] releases. Really stupid.

118 points · 1 year ago

They're so fucking stupid. I made a hype post for the album and instead of removing and or giving me a warning they deleted the post banned me from posting for 10 days and didn't answer any messages....

Definitely a stupid reaction but the hype tag is meant for up and coming artists instead.

Didn't do an actual hype tag, the post was like "Whos hyped for Kendricks new album?"

What the fuuu

So I anagrammed the letters on the white side of the wall and you can make "2 Blue" "And on third day he rose again" "Deuteron" with aelt left over. Which is all probably coincidence but is still kinda funny.

EDIT If there is one I think part 2's gonna be called YO.

"aelt" = "late" potentially?

So the official version of FEAR has a skit at the top of it

Is that the only change from the leak?

It's a little different. It's got a phone call at the beginning and then a break at the end after Kendrick cuts out. Then there's a little chorus thing on "god damn" this and that and then another phone call. It's really good. Also there's no "I've been hungry my whole life" dude at the end.

Feels like a Drake song or am I the only one? It's really moody and he says "keep the family close" which was a track off views...doesn't even seem like a shot just interesting if not coincidental

27 points · 1 year ago

I think the keep the family close reference is more of a Drake diss than anything, and the almost lethargic/depressed sounding vocals when he's delivering that line kind of contribute to it for me. It's like he can copy his style and elevate it, but the actual execution of it is so easy it's boring to him.

Funny how if Drake has a song like another rapper, he's a culture vulture. But if Kendrick does it... "Must be a diss" or "just a coincidence".

That origin story though, goddamn.

I was smiling so hard at the start of that. He was talking bout that blind lady and I was just waiting for the beat to go in, I could tell some shit was about to happen.

He came through with another classic, pretty sure I was Big Quinting the whole way through

I was big quinting during DNA and then when the second part hit I went ultra Quint

Or PRIDE. I sincerely hope it does

it's amazing how Kendrick continues to move hip hop in such a fresh and new direction. His lyrics, delivery, the features, the production, everything about DAMN. is so different from anything he or anyone else has done before and it is clearly an amazing piece of work. It's great to see someone really explore their creativity and be so successful while doing it

Oh we can talk in this thread? No way!

r/hiphopheads ran by some cucks

Edit: Also, I can't select a favorite but LOVE. was fantastic and Zacari's feature was superb WE EATIN

Right? Why do I need 24 hours after the official drop to talk about the album. I'd already heard it twice before it got onto iTunes

They say they lock threads for all "big" album releases, but the thing is they haven't done it in the past for some big name artists. Hell, just last week they didn't lock the thread for AABA.

They're consistently inconsistent with most, if not all, of their rules. The logic behind this move is seriously lacking. Thank god we have this sub or else I would not know what to do with myself. I enjoy reading people's initial reactions to albums. Sure you're going to have shit posts, but you also get some quality posts sprinkled in.

Seriously, what a bunch of pretentious douches. Had me reading Kanye To The prior to finding this subreddit.

Fam, I think GOD has a higher chance than NATION.

There's a full stop after DAMN, so it must be the end of the word. If you think that is the beginning script of an N or A, then look at the N and A already shown in the current album artwork. For those asking why A, DAMN + NATION = DAMNNATION, not DAMNATION, and since DAMN is already in this artwork, the other album could only have ATION - but that doesn't work.

So onto the reasons why I think it's going to be GOD. To the guys that said the M looks like devil horns and the O could be the halo, I'm totally with you. The O in GOD is located more in the middle of the word than in NATION, and has a higher chance of success at actually working in the artwork. DAMN is close enough to the left edge of the artwork for GODDAMN to work. If it were to be GOD, the order in which the albums were released in would form DAMN GOD. This could be Kung Fu Kenny venting his emotions on his life on this Earth. As a word, it would form GODDAMN, which is actually a word with two consecutive letters, unlike DAMNNATION.

But fam I don't know.

EDIT: Also, the outro of FEAR repeats GODDAMN 5 times, so pretty likely.

Draw the parallels between Kendrick and Jesus in this album. The video for humble shows him at a table similar to the last supper. He says in DNA he came by immaculate conception. The album has a lot of religious references and lots of layers. Now notice today is Good Friday with the album titled damn featuring his death. Two days later should be the resurrection.
