DAMN album by the American hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar is now available in iTunes.
The Californian rapper talks about his relationship with the family and the glory that has fallen upon him. And it got tons of praise from Metacritic users.
“A very good hip-hop album and Kendra's best album in terms of lyrics. It is very different from the previous two.”
“With this album Kendrick changed his sound and offered something new compared to his previous recordings. Excellent from start to finish, you need to listen a couple more times to get into the lyrics.”
“Kendrick is back and good, as always. This time without jazz and funk. Although I really liked the style of the previous album, I like such changes.”
Jude Brewer, a columnist for Cultured Vultures, notes the artist's subtle perception of the surrounding reality and calls not to judge the album on the first audition:
Just like with the good kid, M.A.A.D City, To Pimp a Butterfly and Section.80, you need a second audition to understand what Kendrick went through over the past year. Even the third and subsequent for those who had not heard him before or simply did not understand. First, listen to the world around yourself and recall that he simply interprets it. Remember 2016? Heck. [DAMN.] Kendrick Lamar also remembers.
