    Couldn't have been more wrong about Kendrick Lamar. Maybe I'm just no good at looking past beats I don't like. New album is amazing.

    Kendrick may be overrated and I may be super late, but he definitely deserves his recognition.

    The problem with modern hip-hop is really the fans. They typically don't have adequate info to make accurate judgments upon the artist at hand, listening to only the radio singles and claiming an artist to be the best.

    Once you explore music, you will have a better understanding of how things work.
    Kendrick not only have a myriad of unique flows, but his lyricism and ability to abstractly tell a story or make a point may be unrivaled when in comparison with his peers.

    In being overrated, I see it as the fans who stumble upon him when usually listening to lesser talented artists and straight boosting the guy lol.
    I mean, if I listen to Waka Flocka religiously, of course ill stumble across Kendrick and think he's god lol. He's vastly better.


    Overall, I don't believe in overrated mess as an actual status, but rather a perspective.
    Depending on who you listen to common, some artists will seemingly be held as better or worse by the general public than what value you hold them to.

    What about "sleep is the cousin of death"? Is that not a reference to Nas' NY state of mind?

    The piano hits are from 0:25, 0:31, and 0:54 and the guitar chops are located at 0:28, 0:33, 0:47, 0:55, and 0:19. Absolutely brilliant chopping. The way they pieced together all these different hits and made it sound so fluid and natural is pretty genius.

    Habits & Contradictions by Schoolboy Q, if you haven't listened yet it will change your mind. Sacrilegious, Raymond 1969, There He Go, Oxy Music, Hands on the Wheel. All great tracks.

    I don't see any problems with all the hype around these "new wave" artists, i mean the game changed, and people are more open minded about hip hop, that's why people like Kendrick and Rocky are overrated ! But personally i don't mind about they are overrated, i like their music and to me that's the only thing important.
    And i think Kendrick Lamar, Rocky and Danny Brown are really talented tho.

    اظحر said 2 years ago:

    Yea to be fair Danny Brown is unique, I just don't think he's any good

    I can see that you could call some of them derivative, especially ASAP Rocky. Don't think Danny Brown fits.

    No, just my opinion. Vanilla ice was an exaggeration but in order for me to be hating I would have to care slightly n I really dont! I honestly think that without the Dre affiliation he'd just b another rapper.
    I've only heard bits of the rappers I mentioned but enough for me to know I'm not feeling em, KL like I said I think is ok n better than the others named but compared to the hype?? Nah man. N add Danny Brown to that list!

  • JAY Gumb$
    JAY Gumb$ said 2 years ago:

    Same thing I was saying. Kendrick is new but not one of your "new wave rappers".

    You said it though. He's not wack. But you'd rather listen to Vanilla Ice just because Kendrick gets TOO much love? Not saying you're wrong about him being overrated but isn't that the exact definition of "playa hating"?

    I don't know how you could throw Kendrick in with those other emcees, he doesn't really sound anything like them

    Nah man you're not alone.

    Some of his songs are cool and all but to me he's not that great.

  • اظحر
    اظحر said 2 years ago:

    I the only one who thinks he is seriously overrated? Not wack but overrated like f***. Wiz Khalifa, Asap Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar etc etc all the 'new wave rappers' as I call em, might as well be carbon copies of each other, rather listen to Vanilla Ice
