You heard that "Money Trees" off Good Kid, M.A.A.D City? That's a tight track from him. It was the first one I heard when I downloaded his album. "Money Trees" and "The Recipe" with Dr. Dre are two nice ones to check out

Kendrick's got a verse on the new Dido album that's just dropped. Hyped to hear it.
I don't care what others say, I love both of those artists.

I've got an Amazon voucher, so I'm gonna buy Good Kid, M.A.A.D City now. I've not listened to it but I'll report back once I've listened through.

Where was the original review thread? I remember some people saying the concept was poor and it's an average album.

Two tracks in now, starting to regret this.

You guys have got to be kidding me, I have no idea how you can hate it. The concept's solid, it's a cautionary tale of peer pressure, environment and the consequences of being something you're not.
The production's some of the best on any record in recent times, Kendrick's rapping is tight and his stories provoke imagery and emotions in me at least.

At first I wasn't overly struck, I felt it was too long and the cutaway's were stupid but after a few listens, it grew on me like no other album. Everything serves a purpose, everything contributes towards the overall product. The more I hear it, the more I love it. It's an album I can play, sit back and get put into Kendrick's shoes. I'm taken from wherever I happen to be and plopped right there in the middle of what's going on in his life. It's a powerful piece that can do that. I feel he's the best storyteller in rap since a young Nas was dropping Illmatic and It Was Written. In my eyes, it is the masterpiece some are touting it as. A special, special album.

I just think it's ironic that when Kendrick was getting mainstream attention and seeing commercial success, this forum turned against him. There's no way people are hating on this album because it's devoid of quality, it isn't. It was by far the greatest album released last year and possibly one of the all time great hip-hop albums.

I don't hate it. I hate several tracks and I get annoyed at how highly it is regarded when I consider it to be just about average/below average.

I don't hate it, I'm still undecided. I bought the album, no hate here.

At first listen I think it's quite nice in places, beats are nice. When I listened to previews I thought it'd be crap cos there were some Trap tracks on here but I like the beats. He can spit too (I have never heard any of his stuff before this.)

That was what I thought too, but it's not a cringe as something like The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. They seem to fit alright.

You really think that?

I ignored the rest of the post to avoid the long winded argument which would consist of a tl;dr reply from Manky, and a ts;?? reply from myself.
