rapper. lyricist. artist. poet. intellectual.
Yes, he is all of these things. Mostly known for the former. Largely unknown for the latter. Kendrick is simply intelligent. And every ounce of that intelligence pours into his lyrics. His songs don’t at all feel like songs but poems. So passionate, so purposeful. Each word deliberate, and each phrase deeper than the next. Lamar is a craftsman, a careful one. All his words are perfectly placed, he is an artist and his art is crafted raw and genuine sealed with brilliance. If I made a list of all the minds I would explore, he would be top five. Pick up his latest album DAMN., if you haven’t, you won’t regret it.
