No Kendrick? Wack.

Tbh I'd be surprised if he can ever make something a fraction as good as Control System. Kendrick is probably the second best artist on the TDE roster (maybe third), but the gap between him and Soul is pretty massive.

GKMC (good) > Section.80 (good) > Damn. (pretty good) > TPAB (literal garbage, not a single tolerable song on this project)

Not even sure if Kendrick would make the Top 30 of the decade with exclusively hip hop releases.

Kids these days have no respect for the great artistry of good hip hop.

Another thing you might want to do Sandy is check out the albums on Wikipedia after you've listened to them. About two thirds of the way down the page for the album, they'll have the "professional ratings" chart. You'll see the hypocrisy that has haunted Rolling Stone magazine for years. They'll like the album now, but when it was released, there's a possibility it was panned by them.

Thanks! I would enjoy seeing the discrepancy!
