Havent listened to it yet, but in my humble opinion the current rap standings are 1. Kendrick, 2. Chance, 3. Nobody is close and 4. Everybody else.
What kendrick has been able to do is nothing short of amazing. He is somehow both fire on the mic, and he can articulate deeper thoughts poetically. I still havent liked anything as much as Maad City, but the heart part 4 was close. I will have to give this a listen later.
The speculation is a second album on easter? That would be interesting and could potentially throw alot of kendrick classics into the mix.
