ok I decided to listen to this anyways and as an albu it's actually pretty good. I'm at Swimming Pools now, and the track really does sound better in the album.

Who does his beats? The one beat that stood out to me (The Art of Peer Pressure) turned out to just be a rip-off of some Danish rapper.

There's a lot of producers for this one, there's a list of them in the track listing.

GKMC is aimed at a different market than Section 8.0
It's Kendrick's attempt at cracking the mainstream, and if you take it for what it is, it's actually quite good.

The beats are good, the lyrics catchy and I'd put it up against the likes of Rick Ross and Drake, and it'd blow them apart.

Dying of thirst is terrific.

My point exactly. How hard is it to destroy two of the most over hyped, unoriginal acts in Hip Hop right now?

not very. But we must appreciate that those acts are designed for the mainstream.
For people who buy into fake gangster Rick Ross and actor with a record label trying to play the part, Drake.
These people are not looking for thought provoking lyricism, carefully constructed beats.
Substance, flow or even musical talent.
They like the hype, the idea of the aforementioned artists.
Most Rick Ross/Drake fans are younger teens trying to connect with the larger in life personas and getting swept up in the waves of euphoria surrounding them as 'artists'

If Kendrick wishes to take that path, power to him. I support him.
As average as he was, Lupe Fiasco once spoke about dumbing down his product to appeal to the larger demographic.
That is the process that Kendrick is in. That is why GKMC is not Section 8.1
If he chooses this path, there won't be a Section 8.1

However, as a hip-hop release aimed at the mainstream, it's still really good.

Default He's OK nothing special

I havent been a hip hop fan in a while, and if i do listen to hip hop its usually the older generation(biggie, bone thugs, nas), jazzy or something like curren$y, kid cudi, kanye west, asap rocky. I think kendrick lamar has the makings of a good artist but im just not a fan of his voice. There is only one song I want to hear on a regular basis and its "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst". The other song I like is Poetic Justice but thats basically because of the Janet Jackson Sample, I hate Drake is on it, not a fan of him. Section.80 was way more authentic than the new album.

I think it's odd that you'd want him to take the path that much lamer artists have taken, but I can understand hoping he'll find a larger audience being at least having a little more depth and talent than the other rapper.

PS I don't see Kendrick being that much better than Lupe. Fiasco was a solid rapper, he just had a lot more pop orientation than is considered OK now. Kendrick is surely less poppy, but I wouldn't say his rap skills far surpass Fiasco is they do at all.

Am only 4 tracks in and am not really enjoying it tbh.

Does it seem a bit gimmicky to anyone else the effects they have added to his vocals?
