Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

High. Or just want to listen to someone keeping Hip-Hop/Rap alive.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

I actually really don’t like this cover. Why couldn’t we get something like To Pimp A Butterfly? Or even a screenshot from the HUMBLE. Music Video?

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

I don’t know if it’s the awful cover art, or just the fact that I don’t really think it’d transfer to a record that well, but I have no intention on buying this on vinyl. I’ll just rock it in my car instead.

Final Thoughts:

I’ll admit it, I’m not the biggest Kendrick fan, it’s not because I don’t think he’s talented or anything like that, I guess he just hasn’t grown on me as an artist yet. But DAMN. was a really solid step in the right direction of making him one of my favourites. There are some damn impressive songs on this record, I’m super stoked to have it on my ipod.
