Kendrick the only nigga that can catch Nas. Album is mad emoji flames.
Blasphemy. Kendrick is the King of this era music wise but Nas is GOAT so let's not get carried away. He and Cole carrying the torch.
That said, this album is really dope and smooth musically. The beats and cohesion really standout. Whereas TPAB was comparable to Nas Nigger Album in its theme and vibe. This is similar to Gods Son album. Like Nas, his earlier work is tough to match. GKMC is his illmatic vibe wise but I still take Section 80 as the joint I feel the most. This album is nice nonetheless. 8.5 - 9 out of 10 on first few listen. I hear the Kanye, Quik and Andre 3k and even Lil Weezy/Future type influence on this album.
Hope it's GKMC part 2 or Section 80 part 2.
To me, this is the most dope thing about hiphop. We hear the songs and her the stories and rumors second hand. But when a nigga get older and in a good space and u get it delivered from their perspective like this. Its like hearing emmit smith describe his shoulder cracking in the super bowl vs Denver. Good shit, even prodigy's book as grandiose as he makes himself was a good read.
Prodigy is a legend though, Jim Jones on the other hand...
