Kendrick Lamar

“I remembered you was conflicted. Misusing your influence, sometimes I did the same.
Abusing my power full of resentment.Resentment that turned into a deep depression.
Found myself screamin’ in the hotel room. I didn’t wanna self destruct
The evils of Lucy was all around me. So I went runnin’ for answers
Until I came home.”

I’ll leave this to be the self explanatory article about Kendrick. He is one of those artists who understands his position and uses it in the most intelligent way to influence his listeners. He disguises his messages and you might listen to his albums for years and only then understand what one song or a line is about. Like the lines from  “For Sale?” or  “Lust” from his new album Damn..

Here is an interview with Zane Lowe that will make you understand why Kendrick is more than just an artist and more than just the greatest rapper.
