I was listening to Untitled Unmastered in preparation for this album to release last night but then I came across the fact that it had leaked in it's entirety at around 6pm last night lol. Immediately found a download link, albeit the download took FOREVER but meanwhile I was reading comments about the album on KTT forums and everyone was hyping it up and saying it was out of this world, one track in particular really caught everyone's attention (XXX) so I was excited as hell to listen to this thing start to finish.

Fast forward about forty minutes later and I'm listening to it, for some reason it's not thatin my face as I expected it to be but some tracks really stuck out.. DNA, Loyalty (my favorite atm), XXX and the outro Duckworth. Listened to the entire thing EXTENSIVELY last night multiple times and it's really growing on me.

That's one thing I feel like Kendrick has been doing on purpose with his last three projects (To Pimp A Butterfly, Untitled Unmastered and DAMN), he makes them harder to digest and quite multi-layered so everything doesn't click upon first listen and you have to go back and revisit the album multiple times in order to form a proper opinion of it. He even talked about this in interviews.

Section.80 and good kid, m.A.A.d city were quite easy to listen to and digestable upon first listen and very enjoyable from start to finish. Both have insane amounts of replay value too. I feel like Kendrick went totally left field when he released TPAB but not in a bad way.

It always surprises me how well Kendrick does. He doesn't make particularly catchy music a lot of the time, but it still catches everyone's attention. 

 

I'm only up to 'Loyalty' ft Rihanna, but so far I'm warming to it quicker on my first listen than I did was TPAB.

His words just really resonate with everyone in a relatable way. He says things we're all thinking but scared to say... only in a way better than other rappers do it. It hits you a certain way, that's where I feel his music excels.. The way it hits you and makes you feel.

I feel like this album is more easily digestible than TPAB but at the same time it's extremely lyrical and does have some slow moments.

98 on Metacritic so far :D http://www.metacriti.../kendrick-lamar

 

Even topped TPAB's score (so far) and that received so much rave upon release. Kendrick truly gets better with every release. Sheesh.

That's the right word, 'digestible'. 

 

I'm disappointed by the U2 feature. I was talking to someone who listened to the song just for the fact U2 were on it and he said it was terrible because they're barely there. He's not a hip hop fan in the slightest, but a huge fan of Bono and the gang. I do agree with him. Apart from the short chorus, Kendrick could have used anyone. I guess the song's subjectt matter matches what U2 talk about in their stuff, but otherwise I think it should have been sombody else if he wasn't going to give them more of a presence. 

 

The album as a whole feels like it changes direction around 'LOVE' ft Zacari (The most unKendrick like song I feel he's ever done, actually). It feels intentional for single purposes, maybe. Only had the one listen, but there's something different from that point on that I'll be able to better explain after a another session or 2.  

 

Great album. Feels like Kendrick Lamar whilst also producing a different vibe from his other albums. 4 projects in and he hasn't stepped wrong yet.

Wuf Ticket was a rap group that consisted of Mustafa Ahmed, James Mason, Earl McField and Karin Wolf.

In 1982, they released their debut single “Ya Mama” on Prelude Records. The song managed to peak at #21 on Billboard’s Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 14 weeks.

 



Their follow-up single “The Key” was released the year after. A completely different style compared to their first one. It was an energetic an motivational dance track loaded with more synthesizer and drum machine. The female's backing vocal is present while the male vocalist sings his lines. High and low male vocals and vocoder at the end are also present. It unfortunately didn’t make much impact on the charts but it's still a favorite among post disco and 80's funk enthusiasts.

 

Spoiler

 

After that, it seems as if Wuf Ticket faded into obscurity. Ahmed and Mason occasionally kept busy with music.

 

Mason produced that same year 'The Fat Boys' first rap single "Reality" that was released around September/October under their first band name The Disco 3.

 

 

Ahmed as a percussionist performed as a session musician and played congas for Mason's first and only solo LP "Rhythm Of Life" in 1977. Mason is a multi-instrumentalist that plays guitar, Piano, Electric Piano [Fender Rhodes], Synthesizer, and Guitar Synthesizer. His musical inspiration were The Crusaders, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Joseph Zawinul, Stevie Wonder, The Pointer Sisters and Stanley Clarke. He was also fortunate to be a band member of the American funk, soul and jazz composer and vibraphone player Roy Ayers.

Lil' B? Vince Staples? I'm good. That DNA video goes very well with the audio. This is the type of sh*t Jay-Z was trying to do with illumanti type sh*t, but that's weird. Kendrick is doing something very interesting and intriguing from his rap perspective. Which is something mainstream rap lacks and needs. Never was a fan of Kendrick but this sh*t is growing on me.
