Did kendrick=booty shitpost so hard everyone left?
Not a Hip Hop/Rap fan, but, I recently listened to Kendrick's Mad World or whatever it's called.
Not bad, not bad at all. Anybody got any recs? I don't dig that Tyler the Creator or moe Drake shit.
Listen to that.
If you liked whatever Kendrick you heard, listen to Good Kid M.A.A.D. City. It's his second album and one of the best of the last decade. Super accessible, too.
Is there anything specifically you want to hear? I can rec as much shit as you can take.
Sure, didn't mean to overwhelm you. Check out some of his frequent collaborators;
Ab-Soul - Control System
Jay Rock - 90059
ScHoolboy Q - Oxymoron
You might also want to check out some classic work by artists that inspired Kendrick;
Tupac - Me Against the World or the 7 Day Theory
Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle
Dr. Dre - The Chronic
If you like Kendrick's style, you might also enjoy Masta Ace, I'd recommend checking out Disposable Arts. Also check out Mos Def's Black on Both Sides.
Pic related is a general intro to hip hop if you find yourself becoming more interested in the genre.
Just as an aside, if you see someone on there who's popular, don't think less of them for it. Everyone on the chart is a talented musician who've put together some really fantastic work that's worth checking out.
