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.
Big's music has aged very well, like fine wine.
A lot of people from that same era dropped good albums that didn't age well.
To compare Kendrick to Big you'd have to wait 20 years to see how GKMC ages.
