5.0 out of 5 stars A Breath of fresh Air in Hip Hop!! July 6, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Listen to it and then buy it. It's good. It's a shame no one knows about Marcus Garvey and the Black Star Line. Before there was Martin and Malcolm there was Marcus. This kid obviously took the time and read books. What kids do you know now do that. Don't sell you soul. Search and look within your self and be you and no one else. This is real music. Not that rap crap on the radio. It's good believe me.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best young rappers of this generation July 20, 2011
By Ralph

I came across Kendrick last year when I downloaded one of his mixtapes on I was really impressed with his presence and control over the various beats. While his peers are making cookie cutter lil wayne knock-offs Kendrick goes deeper in his lyrics, while still connecting to the streets. On Section 80 you'll hear various examples such as Tammy's Song, where he raps about an abused girl and personal favorite "Blow My High", a tribute to Aaliyah & Pimp C. I highly recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond His Years March 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Kendrick Lamar is one of the very few new rappers out there that knows how to tell compelling stories. He is only 24, but this is a real man that has something to say about the world and not just the same juvenile struggles that mainstream rappers from the Young Money camp or Maybach Music try to do. Kendrick Lamar tells stories of struggles from his view, from women's point of view and real issues that not a lot of rappers out there would even attempt to address nowadays. Yes, issues such as abortion, bad relationships, violence, drugs have been touched before, however Kendrick Lamar does it in such a clever fasion that it is undeniable that this young MC understands the world in a much broader sense than your college scholar's . At first listen, I will admit Kendrick Lamar is not the easiest person to listen to at times, his voice and personality takes some warming up to if you haven't listened to his music before, but once you do, it is just smooth sailing from there on because this young man is the best thing to come out of Compton since The Game's "The Documentary" album.

This album is a concept album that revolves around two main characters Tammy and Keisha, and the whole album is a narrative about the lives of these two very different people whom ultimately end up in destruction with no viable solution. Section.80 tells multiple stories from both male and female perspectives of the crack generation during the 80s and how those kids in America in poverty were living. The production on the album is incredible to say the least, every track is DIFFERENT which is what I love about the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop Album of the Year Thus Far September 20, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The title says it all. I heard about this guy, downloaded Section.80 and was so impressed that I bought it. If you listen to the album from beginning to end, you kind of see the picture that he is trying to portray.

Very lyrical, very deep and very, very talented.

In very heavy rotation for me!

5 stars all the way.

I love what K. Dot is doing he has his own style and he reminds me of old school rap. I'd rather listen to him than all of these corny mainstream rappers that are on the radio this day in time #RealHipHop4Ever

At first I REALLY did not like Kendrick Lamar. I listened to ADHD and Rigamortus, and I did not like either song, so I just blew him off when people told me to listen to him. Well, that was probably one of the stupidest things I have ever done. Because I finished and bought the album a few days ago, and it is probably one of my favorites now. ADHD and Rigamortus were probably my least favorite songs from the album, but as a whole the album is great and I was amazed after I listened to the whole thing.

The thing that makes this album so great is because it is one of those albums that is what hip hop is all about. Nowadays you see rappers rapping about stuff like cars, women, drugs, and that's literally ALL they talk about. Rap music has become so stale recently, but it's albums like this that are keeping it alive. I love this album because it sends positive messages to people as opposed to talking about the stupid stuff I mentioned earlier. Kendrick is one of those unique artists that is able to talk to the people and send a message about society in his raps.

In this album most of the songs are fantastic lyrically and Kendrick always has a great flow. There are a few songs that I didn't like such as The Spiteful Chant and Rigamortus, but outside of a few the album is great as a whole. There are songs like F*** Your Ethnicity where he talks about racism, Keisha's song where he talks about awful career choices made by a woman, Hiiipower where he encourages the public to join a movement, ADHD where he talks about problems with drug abuse in today's society, etc. Almost every song on this album sends a message to people about society and that's what I feel is most important in rap: sending a message and telling a story.
