The cover is an alluring shade of pea green but again without an actual image. Lamar firmly understands how cadence, repetition and rhythm can create a sonically stunning, attention-grabbing concoction. This collection delivers a rich tapestry of ideas within a very short time. Lamar knows this and his rhymes are filled with an extremely politically-minded fury as he approaches each track with the flexibility and the fearlessness of an unapologetic slam poet. Fundamentally, this record is free. The album is currently available on iTunes and on Spotify and Tidal. Even if this set of unused Butterfly demos and outtakes is partly a strategic move to prove Lamar can compete at surprise-release whack-a-mole, it has far more to offer than most gatherings of as the Who put it odds and sods.

Lamar knows this and his rhymes are filled with an extremely politically-minded fury as he approaches each track with the flexibility and the fearlessness of an unapologetic slam poet.
Listening to this, you wonder if this is a collection of tightly put-together words that were purposely written beforehand or possibly a free-styling master at work. No doubt Lamar was untitped spurred by all the fuss Kanye West kicked up during Grammys week with the hypnotically shaggy and piecemeal process of putting out his album The Life of Pablo. There are repeated mentions of self-respect throughout in a world where people put their endless trust in institutions of government and religion only to be let down by false promises.
Being that this album comes without credits, information unmasfered who is behind what tracks is slowly trickling in across the Internet. You can find new stories here. Kendrick Lamar continues to effortlessly merge visceral concepts that too often get swept under the rug with often sublime atmospheres.
Again, this is a highly potent, controversial collection that both earns its parental warning sticker and rocks the boat. Untitled is a format he uses for all the tracks which are only numbered and datedand in record production, mastering is a process of smoothing out final sound balances and tones, which is a pricey part of an official album unmastdred.

That being said, Lamar is expressing his sense of plight and in a world where Macklemore and Eminem get more press than most other rappers, the notions of inequality are pretty impossible to deny. This collection delivers a rich tapestry of ideas within a very short time. The name of the project is at once a disavowal of polish and a political double-entendre.
Given the drift of the current presidential primaries, end-times visions seem all too on-point. By not overworking the moments, he makes them more lasting. Great hip-hop breaks boundaries and will no doubt make some people uncomfortable. Lamar firmly understands how cadence, repetition and rhythm can create a sonically stunning, attention-grabbing concoction.
Production-wise, this record is just as sharp as it is lyrically. His goal is equality and how we can learn a lot from each other without exploiting each other for selfish gain. He is one of the few voices capable of sounding all the contradictions of being awake to our messed-up but mess-aware times, without getting snared in the social-media snapchat where Kanye West excels.
When we look unmadtered onhis reflections will stand as authoritative examples of protest records that symbolize the turmoil of our time.
Intelligence and learning to think independently are cherished notions here. In the studio, Lamar prefers texture courtesy of his untitlde and his excellent cast of soul-jazz collaborators, including bassist Thundercat, vocalist Anna Wise, and saxophonists Terrace Martin and Kamasi Washington to high drama.
Or so the yarn is spun. Combined with the OscarsSoWhite controversies, Lamar is just speaking to an obvious bigger problem that needs to be solved. That might be wise: The cover is an alluring shade of pea green but again without an actual image. Its no-frills title kntitled almost meant to have a diminishing effect.
Lamar is cerebral in his approach. Again, it is as thought-provoking as it is venomous. It continues to show Kendrick Lamar as one of the most gifted unmastrred important figures in recent history to grab the mic. Even if this set of unused Butterfly demos and outtakes is partly a strategic move to prove Lamar can compete at surprise-release whack-a-mole, it has far more to offer than most gatherings of as the Who put it odds and sods.
Hip-hop, I guess, has a new child-prodigy uunmastered its hands. This minimalist approach actually keeps things mysterious and of all the artists working in hip-hop today, Lamar is among a small group of MCs who are harkening back to a pre-hip-hop era.
