    This is a good point too
    I honestly didn't listen to enough newer music the last year to say if he truly deserved it or not

    I am glad it went to a different genre than jazz, simply for it showing them opening up to new genres

    We all know you made a big push for 69 to get the award this year

    tbh I find 69 amusing and the beat and his voice work well.

    trolling gangster rapper's is genius.

    think about it he has gangster's coast to coast chaffed.

    Little Tommy Terror is way better and more meaningful lyrics than Kendrick, ripped off.

    I find some of the shit he says in interviews and some of his Instagram shit I see on other channels funny as fuck but I just can't get into his music, I've listened to everything of his on YouTube and nothing hits for me
    He's better than the lil pump's out there, I'll give him that for sure

    Ya, that award means nothing now, and has not in awhile

    not his fault, he is doing his thing

    but I just listened to his top 10 songs and I am like wtf is so hot about it....hip hop/rap/whatever has lost its way if that is the spiritual wise shit

    Ya, I can see the resemblance but onyx is much better lyrically and didn't use the gawd awful auto tune I hear in some of 69 music

    Yep 35
    I like a bunch of new music, even some of them that use auto tune (sparingly lol)
    There was actually a lot of good rap sets at Coachella past weekend, some horrible ones too lol

    I feel Kendrick's style is a salute to the lyric heavy 90's gangstarr, Mos Def, tribe called quest with a modern twist....dude's talented and main stream can't hate him selling records.

    Theres a lot and hes still young af
    Like @Nemo?@Nemo? said (or alluded to) he shows you can still be lyrically conscious while playing the game a little and be ontop of the rap game

    I think there are better lyracist out there, but for everything he touches to go top fucking 10 and still be that lyrical, I won't hate on the dude at all

    If you like Jazz you should give To Pimp a Butterfly a listen. Kendrick is definitely the best of right now imo and a strong contender for the best ever. Still need about 2 more solid albums to get the coronation, but he's produced 3 consecutive flawless albums which is more than most can say.
