Finally, it's here, Kendrick "To Pimp A Butterfly" was released on the 16th this month. And while nothing around the distribution around the new Kendrick LP is change, Aftermath Entertainment and Top Dawg Entertainment being the lebles behind the project, a lot has changed in Kendrick Lamar's style. He has never been trendy, following phats and trying to give the listeners what they expected when it come to lyrics, however, with "To Pimp a Butterfly" Kendrick is also going in his own direction when it comes to sound.
Strong Jazz, Funk, Old School and G-Funk influenced, with his new album Kendrick made the choice to create something more timeless than trends dominating the charts. With featurings from Snoop Dogg to songs with legents like George Clinton, Bilal, Ronald Isley the album is really diverse.
All of this makes this album definitely one of the best hip-hop albums I've listen to, if not for the last decade at least for the last 5 years.
2015 is just starting, but it will not be exaggeration to say that there is a big chance that this might be the Album of the Year.
