    Cannot wait. The expectations are unfairly high for him but I am beyond excited.

    I do believe that after he says “take the drums out” he starts smoking on your top 5

    I think he’s just breathing in and out 3 times

    This is like when people said he wouldn’t do a The Heart Part V because the heart only has 4 chambers

    Lol is it? It’s just an observation. Sounds like he could be smoking.

    idk I feel like this whole rap genius era of fans tends to look for meaning in every little thing like every rap verse needs to be annotated like it’s a chapter in House of Leaves

    I took at as him taking a couple of deep breaths before talking about the death of a friend. Sometimes with Kendrick we tend to get too academic with everything and the human element of his music gets lost

    I could be wrong, likely we won’t ever know

    Idk man I’ve seen the “4 chambers of the heart” response on Twitter about 100 times this morning in an effort to say “it’s not that deep”. Sometimes it is t that deep but with Kendrick, a lot of the times it is.

    I guess a rap genius nerd

    From what I’m gathering Marvin Gaye’s estate charges 6 figures to clear his samples. Kendrick got a sample cleared for a song that won’t even be on his album.

    The extra space through the thighs signifies the space Kendrick has carved out in the rap industry to pursue an album that is not comprised by the interests of others

    Count Me Out and Crown are my favorites right now. Disc 1 was enjoyable, on disc 2 now.

    * Fucking Silent Hill's intro
    ** lots of different sounds, it'll take me another listen to feel something

    Disc 2 is where it's at. Mirror ain't even rap that's mostly an R&B song and it's awesome. Gimme a Kendrick R&B album NOW!

    Man I kinda feel like if you guys like this you need to give the We Are Jon Batiste album a shot. "We Are" and "Boy Hood" are incredible. I know it's a different genre and on Colbert he comes off as a really awkward guy, but he's got some great songs on there.
