What is this about some people saying Kendrick ain't got his own sound ? Go check all TDE albums, they all have this distinctive sound, that is also present through out GKMC. Especially Schoolboy Q and Ab Souls projects. Jay Rock was the one that was heavily westcoast influenced and even now he's creating this TDE sound with recent tracks like YOLA and his verse on Money Trees. They feed off each other. Follow Me Home was dope but it had some generic westcoast bangers that sounded outdated, watch his next album shit on it.

Snoop, Cube, none of them cats is coming through that building next week. This is a changing of the guard.

Except Kendrick still needs to blow up though,
I don't know many non-hiphop fans who know who Kendrick Lamar is yet...

I know the buzz is big in hip-hop circles, but if that doesn't cross over to where most people know who he is,
then it will have just been a sort of flash in the pan thing...

that's what's fresh, NOT recycling the same contemporary generic sound of the day.

Word, that's my biggest problem with Kendrick, if I heard him on the radio, he just blends into all
the other stuff that's out now, just with flows that are little more complex.

Dope album. Been on the repeat. No tracks skipped.

I love "Now or Never". I am surprised nobody mentioned it. One of the best feel good track i have ever heard.
"There's one more thing I'd really like for you to do, never leave me alone..."

"Collect Calls" hasn't been leaked yet since that's on the itunes version. Retail has leaked, not itunes.

Very good album, for a debut .

Production Tde in House .. OK
Just Blaze "Compton" track .. OK
Scoop Deville beats .. OK
Mc Eiht .. OK
DJ Dahi .. OK

Now, the Pharrell track, Drake feature ? WTF Drake is Complete rubbish.

I think Kendrick is deluded with this thing Dr Dre / Aftermath, is included in all albums released recently.
His image is wearing, their sound is losing focus, style.
You see him in Self Made vol2, in Drake's album, Tech 9nine album, Asap Rocky album, dj drama, dj khaled album.

He is closing with everyone in the music industry, and this is not good.
Mostly, the artists are not the West Coast.

After a time, with experience, after three albums, he might conclude partnerships

40 ..in the beI did not see the young Ice Cube, DJ Quik, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Too Short, Eginning of their careers, collaborating with everyone from the music industry.
Everyone created their own sound. his own legacy, before venturing into musical collabos.


But..in the end of a day, for Chill..his album is good ..

However, for me is not an album of West Coast rap
man shut the fuck up. you make no sense what so ever! dj quik dropped his first album in 1991. are you really trying to compare what dj quik did in 1991 to what kendrick is doing in 2012  ;D ;D dubbcnn got some of the dumbest forum members. use your damn common sense bro. first off labels back then wasn't giving rappers the budget they're giving them now. back then you didn't even need a hot single or radio play for these major labels to drop your album. the internet wasn't even popping yet. name one rapper in this era that dropped on a major label that didn't have at least 1 big feature or a big name producer ? times have changed. back then people weren't working with that many people outside their crew. certain west coast niggas wasn't even fucking with each other. i can't believe this dumb dumb just said I did not see the young Ice Cube, DJ Quik, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Too Short, E40 ..in the beginning of their careers, collaborating with everyone from the music industry. ;D :D bro that was 21 years ago. kendrick is 25 years old  :D do you honestly think it takes the same formula to put together a successful debut album in 2012. sorry but i have to call it how i see it. YOU SIR ARE A DUMB ASS!!!

Great, now that this is out of the way maybe Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole can drop their joint mixtape or album now.

It's good to see The Game getting props on Black Boy Fly. This album is 100% West Coast, everything he raps about is Compton centric. TDE are molding there own sound as a soundbed for the West.Coast, its a changing of the guard.G Funk has been outdated for a long time, same with the 2001 sound. The track m.A.A.d City is dopest West Coast banger I've heard.in a long time but I wouldn't want an album full of that.

And lol at Nik thinking if he had a million dollar he could make an album as good as this. You couldn't even fuck with his music when he was independent. Talent makes good music, not money, and if you don't realise it, K Dot is 100x the artist you will ever be, in every sense of the word.

It was just your opinion about the album, did it really warrant its own thread?

it was also a separate discussion on regional sounds with its own article...and more importantly, it generated more traffic and discussion. that is how a message board works. if u have one thread on the biggest west coast release in years, how can u expect the board to thrive? this is a message board for different discussion to take place, not a dubcnn news site for perfect maintenance. this is not how dubcc was founded. back when shit like "man vs machine" dropped, u had countless threads about 1 album, along with an official discussion one. but take it from me, all the threads touching different topics is what kept the board with a strong flow of traffic....thats how message boards like wcc thrive. shit gets way too stale with this much restriction and lack of individual topics. bad business.

lol some1 gettin a lil extra mad because my opinion on the album aint the same as theirs. i never denied the album was sick. u got comprehension issues, my man? u didnt address anything i said about the album, ur just actin like a butthurt lil fanboy. don't get the facts twisted, L.A.M.B shit goes.. but that has absolutely nothin to do with kendrick lackin' regional sound. which is fine, if thats not what ur lookin for. but u cant tell me the first 2 minutes of "m.a.a.d city" doesn't sound exactly like a kanye song.

I shouldn't respond to this thread considering the review is from my website lol, but anyway...

I personally think TDE has created a new west sound, I always felt like the entire doesn't have west sound argument is weak. For example, me and my camp we rap and you can tell we are westcoast cats as soon as we start talking but we have never rapped over your stereotypical westcoast beats. I think Kendricks album sounds very westcoast, its just not the sound that most people are accustomed to. What makes Kendricks album so great is that he is coming from a non affilate perspective, he is basically a cat that didn't get put on a crip or blood hood but was still in the streets and still functioned with crips and bloods. Which I think is the story for a lot of cats out here in the west, you have a lot of non crips and bloods thats still in these streets that still get down and are not on some square shit. The content is west and nobody can say anything about that. I love the album and have been bumping it since i downloaded it and I might actually go buy it. This album is very westcoast, the west sound argument is very subjective...

good points, but dont u see how the sound is largely similar to a lot of the radio stuff nowadays?...elements borrowed from drake, wayne, kanye. the content is west, but thats where it ends. i dont hear anything west coast about his actual sound, outside of the occasional touches by dre (the 2nd half of the song "m.a.a.d city" was DEFINITELY produced by Dre, for instance, and thats the only song i'd say has a true west coast influence). what, aside from the content, gives u a west coast vibe about the sound of the album?

Maybe not to you.. But some people want their west coast music to capture the feeling of their region. Pac's overall sound was west coast (very bay influenced), and Scrarface always had the Texas flow, don't think u can compare Kendricks lack of identity to them. As for labeling an album classic, like I said, u usually know if an album has classic potential the moment you hear it. For instance, everyone knew "2001" was classic the day it dropped. Now, there are exceptions, but i gotta say this album is not.
I guess we'll just agree to disagree on that. Pac to me always had a considerably East Coast energy to him. Pac had a more aggressive edge than you usually got from most West Coast rappers. He was versatile enough to adapt to what was going on in California but even Digital Underground who were the group who put him on in the game, there is a West Coast style there that Pac can certainly mesh with but that's not the aura that he gives off. He's more brash like Naughty By Nature who again have funky enough beats of their own that they rhyme on a distinctly East Coast vibe. Even if you want to compare the artists he fucked with in his circle with hardcore styles. He sounds way more like Stretch from Bomb Squad or one of the Jersey-bred Outlawz members than someone like Spice-1 or Big Syke. He's universal enough to fit in because he's a strong artist but his 1994 era stuff is not regionalized at all to me. And while we're at it, would you really consider Eminem's "Marshall Mathers LP" or "The Eminem Show" to have a strong Detriot or Mid-West vibe to them?

huh? big syke and pac always had a similar style to me. also, ray luv. he's another rapper who i always thought had a similar style to pac. then there are the west coast rappers influenced by pac...roscoe was one of 'em. that list could go on forever, though.  and eminem undeniably has a mid-west sound. that whole shock-value/serial killer rap is a staple of detroit. u ever listen to esham? that was a bad example, my dude.

u dont hear the outkast influence? how bout the current top-40 hip-hop influence? i mean, dont get me wrong, he has partially developed a sound of his own, but he's still workin on developing his own SIGNATURE sound, if u feel where i'm comin from.
