lol another close minded vision on what every artist from the west should sound. shit is sad.

it still amazes me that people still think in 2012 that music from a certain area should sound like this or that.

the content is a westcoast as it gets, just cause it's not gangsta doesn't mean it ain't westcoast. kendrick speaks about what he goes through, he ain't gonna try to conform to g-funk and gangsta lyrics because it's what made the west famous in the early 90's, jesus.


as far as what the OP described as "west coast sound", i agree, he went over the top with the stereotypes......at the same time, kendrick's album IS lacking a regional sound. not because it lacks "G-Funk gangsta shit", but moreso because the sound itself, outside of the content, does not capture the feeling of the west coast. i also didnt hear much east coast influence in it, either, although, kendrick does have some east coastish type cuts in his catalogue ala "hiiipower"

So do Pharcyde, Hiero, Dilated, Jurassic and Freestyle Fellowship capture the sound of your West Coast? People need to stop stereotyping the West to one sound, its been diverse forthe longest time

Some of y'all must be half illiterate or something.

I said in the topic thread that Kendrick's album is a "good album by a good rapper."

So I'm not "hating" on Kendrick, as many of you keep saying.

I just diagnosed his style: it ain't West Coast. It's East Coast.

Doesn't mean he's bad. Just means he don't got the game and the personality and the style of a West Coast rapper.

please define what is a west coast artist

never heard of MobNigga06, nor does it matter 2 what i have to say so just read.





A "westcoast artist" is a fallacy perpechuated by few on the internet, the die-hard stuck in tha past fans and the media that get paid to support them (regardless of the person who's actually posting the Article).


"Good Kid, m.A.A.d City" is as "West Coast" as it gets, same with "Follow Me Home".  Why, aside from the beats it's mainly just the content.  "Swimming Pools (Drank)" doesn't sound "Atlanta".... what is "Atlanta"?  And before u answer that question in your head, where does "Atlanta" get it's sound from? 


There's nothing about Kendrick that says "East Coast" aka "New York", absolutely nothing.  I question anybody who will say that's judgement, and not just judgement but their musical Knowledge and Experience period. 


I mean, becuz if Kendrick is "east coast" then so is Big K.R.I.T. and I think we all know that's not tha case

Just bumped Kendrick's album....

This is a good album from a good rapper, but this is NOT a West Coast album....

Kendrick Lamar is a monotone, cerebral, high-content, intellectual rapper..EAST COAST shit. This nigga should be rappin with motherfuckin Dead Prez or Nas one of them niggas.

West Coast rap is that ignorant, G-funk shit, gangsta shit: it's energetic, it's fun, it's about smoking weed, fuckin bitches, getting high, riding round, feelin good, etc. That ain't Kendrick's album.

Nigga sound more like he's from Brooklyn than Compton.




You are fucking retarded, why bring this little shit up? God u cry baby little shit, die slow

lol Big KRIT sounds like he could be Pimp C's nephew. not only that, he raps about how it's good to be southern with a heavy drawl ("we make it cool to be southern"), and he raps about gripping on woodgrain, like Trae or UGK, there's no possibility to think he's from the east unless you think some of the South is actually the East lol.

A Westcoast artist is someone who lived the majority of their life in the west, made his bones in the west (started recording and got discovered). Simple as that, Even if a new york Label signs them. If you're really gonna talk about Kendrick Lamar being east coast for talking political and socially conscious stuff, Then I guess N.W.A and more specifically Ice Cube are East Coast because while Public Enemy was talking about Black Power N.W.A and Cube was talking about the violence within the inner cities of America.

Just because you spit complex doesn't mean u can't come from the west.

No



thing is tho, there's not too much about this album that's not typical west coast/california music.



see, G Funk never died, it was the copycat "Chronic 2001" sound that did.
