    I'll be honest, my heart skipped a beat when I saw that in the track list, because I didn't know what type of shit kendrick would be on.

    Silly me

    Yeah agreed. Im not a fan of kodak black, not from the standpoint of hate, just that as Im older and not in tune with things, Im very selective in what I listen to. That being said, I love Kodak Blacks verse.

    I don’t really think I’ve ever listened to Kodak Black. I know who he is and it isn’t because I don’t like him, but just haven’t ever listened to his music but I loved his verses.

    His confidence is always on 10 but the vulnerability seems to hit that level too in this album, or at least that's what jumped out to me and maybe why you feel that way

    Man this album, this is why you don’t crank out 4 garbage albums a year……it takes time to make quality masterpieces like this !

    Greatly appreciate the message on Auntie Diaries. Dropping ~10 “faggots” though is going to be a thing, and honestly should be. Has to be a better way.

    I did. And it’s very good, both sound and message. It’s the using it 10 times in the song that just seems a bit ridiculous to me.

    I don’t think many straight people, especially straight rappers, would get the benefit of the doubt on that regardless of intent. Perhaps it’s fair that Kendrick does, but it’s worth talking about either way.

    Mistakenly I didn’t think you’d know any different
    See, I was taught words was nothing more than a sound
    If everything was pronounced without any intentions
    The very second you challenge the shit I was kicking
    Reminded me about a show I did out the city
    That time I brung a fan on stage to rap
    But disapproved the word that she couldn’t say with me
    You said “Kendrick, ain’t no room for contradiction
    To truly understand love, switch position
    ‘F—-t, f—-t, f—-t,’ we can say it together
    But only if you let a white girl say ‘N—a'”

    Again, I understand the message. I had a gay person in my life text me this morning and he talked about the song and how good it is, but also how jarring “faggot” is and has been to people like him and that he just didn’t need to hear it repeated like that in the song for the message to get across. It’s a word that causes people real pain and I’ve seen that same sentiment out in Twitter this afternoon.

    Sure, like I said, perhaps Kendrick very much deserves that benefit of the doubt. Totally possible.

    too much kodak for my tastes considering the album themes and some of the shit he’s been in trouble for but it’s a great record
