I couldn't get into it.

Way to many people (white people) told me how jazzy it was. "It's just sooooo jazzy!, you like jazz! Your going to looooove it!" repeat that 20 times and I was ready to give it a try. I'm over autobiographical hip-hop as it is and didn't give two shits about Kendrick as despite being told that I was a fool because he was the greatest ever about a million times.

Some of the "jazzyness" was decent, a lot of it sounded like garage band samples, or what it would sound like if a scene from a cop drama took place in a jazz club.

As far as jazzy hip hop goes Kendrick isn't as jazzy as the sweat on Madlib's ball sack.

As far as social commentary I don't feel qualified to give an opinion. I only gave the album one hard listen before going back to Gill Scott, Kurtis Blow, The Furious Five and The Last Poets.
