Kendrick just goes. Geeze louize. Talent, talent, talent… can’t argue that.
DOPE. Funky, vocals, simplistically dope little song.
Very good read. And to me, he’s right. Kanye is the same. He’s just ranting or “expressing his views” on different things now. We related to him back in the day on his rants and raves but those same rants and raves are applicable to different things now that we just can’t relate to or don’t value or can’t value because we’re in a different place than him. But I also believe that there should be some level of accountability of growth. We know as adults to not pitch a fit or whine when we can’t get the latte we want at Starbucks or even higher levels of injustice— we learn that there are other, more affective, diplomatic, inclusive and for lack of a better word, “better” ways to get our points across and received. A lot of the things he’s speaking up one, are valid— he’s just lost credibility and interest because of his delivery. And as an artist, I would think he would know, that delivery is just as important, in any art form, as the art itself.
Oddisee always comes with it… and so do the samples… I first heard this instrumental on Consequence’s ‘Disperse’:
Which came from Rhythm’s ‘The World is a Place’:
Rockie Fresh used this same instrumental on his Maybach Music mixtape debut, ‘Electric Highway’… I like both. Dope sound.
Diggin’ this Nahko Bear, Black as the Night… soothing, uplifting and pretty real… refreshingly real.
