To Pimp A Butterfly
The album, To Pimp A Butterfly shows that Kendrick Lamar is not an overrated artist in the least. To Pimp A Butterfly speaks to the struggle that he’s experienced. Kendrick is certainly not a sell out nor has he gotten on his knees to grow to the level of “consciousness” that he shows on this album. This man is truly, one in a trillion. As an artist, it appears that he’s managed to get through the industry without selling out and without falling into the temptations of greed, lust, and selfishness.
What Makes To Pimp A Butterfly Different?
With superb instrumentation and phenomenal guest vocals, To Pimp A Butterfly is a definite “MUST HAVE” for any true hip hop head. The fact that Bilal guests on multiple songs is terrific. Some say that the key to the instrumentation here is Thundercat, a more than gifted Bassist that plays a 6 string. Thundercat is a musician with the undeniable ability to capture “the funk” that Kendrick’s sharp lyricism gives us what we expect with masterful sound quality one expects from Aftermath Records.
This is an album that speaks volumes for the real MC’s. Cop the To Pimp A Butterfly on vinyl, today. And at the same time buy a copy of DAMN on vinyl, as well.
