This thread fell back so I thought I would try to kick some life back into it.

It's a wild, but very fun album.

More from Danny Brown. Absolutely love this song, it is insanely catchy (and simply insane). Absolutely hilarious/disturbing music video directed by....Jonah Hill??? Yup

In addition to Jonah Hill directing, the Dad in that video is played by none other than film director Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk, Elephant).

Sticking with the Danny Brown theme, I love this new track by him and Your Old Droog.

Dope track. I'm a big fan of YOD, both in terms of how he raps and the type of beats he picks. Danny was great too.

Haven't listened to it yet, but early consensus for new Kendrick is pretty predictable, a clear step down (or more) from GKMC and TPAB, but that is to be expected. I expect it'll probably be slightly worse than Section 80.

It's different from those albums that for sure. He's doing some pretty good Drake impersonations on here.

I think it's pretty good. I like it better than TPAB, but I didn't seem to love TPAB like everyone else did.

The concept of TPAB is brilliant but musically it's not for everyone. This is the most accessible project he's put out since GKMC.

The video is pretty amazing though. It seem like the production level and filming quality has skyrocketed lately in hip hop.

On a different topic:

The rap scene seems to be producing a a lot of really cool stuff lately. Artists who a few years ago would have been considered "underground" are able to self promote easier now. In the long run, the loss of the underground scene may be a negative, but right now IMO, it is starting a revolution in rap, not unlike the grunge movement in rock in the 1990s.

I like the new Kendrick album so far. I've only been able to give it one listen all the way through but I enjoyed it. To me it's better than TPAB just because I've never been a fan of when rappers switch from rapping to singing. TPAB just didn't have enough rapping for me.
I really like the production style of DAMN as well. More sampled/interpolated beats and mid-tempo stuff. Hard drums too so it sounds great in the car.
Is it just me or does this album remind anyone of Outkast's Aquemeni album in terms of how it's arranged? Lots of tracks with beat switches in the middle of the track and Kendrick changing his flow all over the place. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.

I'm not sure how many are following the rise of Merkules on the Vancouver scene right now, but the guy is blowing up on Youtube and rightfully so. Dropping a new album today and everything sounds amazing.





He does a bunch of excellent remixes on Youtube too.





He's touring starting next week, will be in Calgary on May 26th.
