It's about DAMN. time Kendrick Lamar's album dropped.
After putting the rap game in a chokehold with the freebie "The Heart Part 4" and the consequent show-stealer "Humble.," the Compton rapper has had fans thirsting for his fourth studio effort DAMN.
The Top Dawg signee is in tip-top form on the 14-track set. He gets on his conscious tip ("DNA.," "Yah.") and even unexpectedly gets his Romeo on ("Love"). Other highlights: U2 on the politically charged "XXX.," the LeBron James-approved "Element.," Rihanna on the intoxicating "Loyalty." and the vulnerable "Fear."
That's not a slight to the other entries on DAMN., though. This album is best enjoyed from front to back.
