Summary Three years after the release of Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, Kendrick Lamar releases his highly anticipated third album. Among the tracks is the new single The Blacker the Berry.
"Grade of A. ...Lamar operates in the same boldly visionary idiom as the Purple One, expanding the boundaries of the hip-hop empire and daring other aspirants to the throne - yes even Kanye, even Jay - to play catch-up."--Entertainment Weekly.
"4 1/2 out of 5...a masterpiece of fiery outrage, deep jazz and ruthless self-critique."--Rolling Stone.
"4 out of album that is cinematic in scope and weighty in its ideas."--USA Today.
"Butterfly could set him up for the throne. Watch out Kanye."--People.
