I learned so much from this man. I was living in California when he died... and if you didn't, you have no clue how we felt, the whole state stopped.. I just remember I couldn't stop crying .... PAC was one of the strongest people I knew... he wasn't suppose to die ... while he was alive he gave me strength to LOVE me, and was one of the first people ever who made me forgive my mom, love her without judging her... that no matter what she was my Queen.... Tupac Amaru, you have no clue how much you touched US 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

My track by track ratings-
Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar released his highly anticipated 4th studio album in April last year. Expectations were high from this young rapper to deliver after a highly acclaimed album "To Pimp A Butterfly" and goddamn he delivered. The production throughout this project is insane. It's weird sounding, but makes sure you bob your head everytime. Mike Will Made It, Sounwave, DJ Dahi, 9th Wonder, The Alchemist etc provided a great set of weird, but yet we'll crafted beats. Kendrick's flow is on point throughout and so is his lyricism as he spits thought provoking bars on Lust, his fears, success, love, political condition in America, being proud of himself as a black citizen etc. In the guest features, both RiRi and U2 member Bono kill it. The beat changes on this project are insane.
Overall, it's an amazing album that surely adds alot to Kenny's stature as a legend in the making. It's my favorite rap album from last year and one of the best that came out in 2017. A must listen for all hardcore Hip Hop/Kendrick fiends. He might have gone pop a bit, but the man is still on point with his pen and his cadences.
