Kendrick Lamar‘s Damn album is hot. Hot, hot—fish grease hot. The talk of the town hot. Mainstream hot. It’s so hot it’s cold, and the buzz surrounding it isn’t letting up anytime soon. Every outlet and media personality worth mentioning has chimed in with their opinion about the LP.
Recently, The Guardian’s Kitty Empire listed Damn as her album of the week calling it another dial shifting release.
This is more of what Kitty had to say: “Damn trolls the mainstream hard, in part via a handful of Mike Will Made-It productions,” she said. “Anything pop rappers do, Lamar can do, Lamar seems to be saying, he can do better. And, as a track called Element has it, ‘make it look sexy.”
Most recently, Compton rapper, Problem, and Kendrick’s longtime collaborator Terrace Martin shared their opinions on Beats 1 Radio’s The Pharmacy show.
Dubbed as Kendrick’s secret weapon, Terrace is also the rapper’s longtime producer and saxman. And Problem and Terrace has been spending plenty of time in the studio since Kendrick retweeted the following Twitter update from Problem’s timeline.
It’s encouraging to know that the top MC from our side (Compton), arguably in the game is still pushing the limits…it makes you want to add another sense of integrity to your work ethic. – Problem
That retweet had the whole Twitterverse talking. Is TDE working on new material already? Maybe, maybe not, stay tuned.
