Fans Describe Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Damn.’ Album in Three Words
Yes, the hip-hop higher ups have blessed listeners with yet another fire album from Kendrick Lamar. The Compton MC dropped his third studio album, DAMN., today (April 14) and has pretty much set the internet ablaze with the new material.
Much like Kenny's 2015 album, To Pimp a Butterfly, the new music sets the stage for the West Coast spitter to take a political stand against the violence and hypocrisy going on in America, especially in his own backyard of Compton.
There's an ominous, militant feel to the selected beats thanks to production from the likes of Alchemist, Cardo, DJ Dahi, 9th Wonder, Mike WiLL Made-It, The Internet's Steve Lacy and James Blake. No other TDE member is credited as a feature, but Cornrow Kenny managed to secure collaborations with pop princess Rihanna, rockers U2 and the soulful Zacari. Though the album was promoted with the lead single "HUMBLE", which dropped late last month, "Loyalty" featuring Rihanna and "Love" featuring Zacari both have follow-up single written all over them.
DAMN. was actually leaked last night before it's official Apple release, which means fans on Twitter have been talking about it for nearly 24 hours straight. In the internet age of hot takes and rapid-fire reviews of albums, XXL asked fans on Twitter if they could boil down their opinions of DAMN. into a three-word description.
Check out what K. Dot's fans (and some haters) have to say about DAMN. in three words or less below.
