I like 3/4 of the album very much, but Section.80 was even better IMO. Kendrick is not a lyricist, but he is a storyteller and a pretty good songmaker. GKMD is a gem for the mainstream....
When I'll want Roc Marciano, I'll listen to Marc. Eminem? I'll listen to Slim. When I'll want a hardcore lyricist, I'll listen to Apathy (doing that right now)... who needs thought provoking lyrics all the time? Most of the time those 'deep rappers' are only bullshitting dipshits.
I can't take an artist who makes songs about swimming pools full of liquor seriously. This kid is supposed to introspective, or be the next Nas? He sounds like a self-absorbed asshole that pop fans would bump to feel good about themselves.
"What does it take to realize, Satan's alive, he whispers
And any chance he get, he can take niggas
He comes in all shapes and sizes, his best disguise is
When he stand beside us, but God is inside us, within me
You are your worst enemy, my mom's words echo in my head
And if I let go I'm dead
Each step that my daughter takes motivates my spirit
An out of body experience, so now I feel it
Looking at my blessings, the bullets, that missed me could of hit me
Them court cases could of put me in the penitentiary
I never hate, that's just wasted energy
The past is gone, the present's a gift, so what's the mystery?
The future, and time only reveals, what fear is
False expectations, appearing real
We only human, love thy neighbor, so I was told
And I will til permanently, my eyes are closed".

This Kid ain't a good storyteller. Please go Listen to Ali Vegas - Moon Out from his new mixtape Book OF Ali. The best storytellin I've heard since the early days of Nas. You cant be a great storyteller if your verses are boring, just an average one.
