Damn – Kendrick Lamar
Damn – Kendrick Lamar

In the two years since the since "To pimp a butterfly", we've hung on Kendrick Lamar's every word--whether he's destroying rivals on a cameo, performing the Black lives matter anthem on top of a police car at the BET awards, or hanging out with Obama. So when Damn opens with a seemingly innocuous line--"So i was taking a work the other day..."--we're all ears. The gunshot that abruptly ends the track is a signal: DAMN is a grab-you-by-the-throat declaration that's as blunt as, complex, and unflinching as the name suggests. DAMN is visceral, spare and straight to the point, whether he is boasting about "royalty inside my DNA" on the trunk-rattling "DNA" or lamenting an anonymous, violent death on the soul infused "Fear".No topic is too big to tackle, and the songs are as bold as their all-caps names: "PRIDE", "LOYALTY", "LOVE", "LUST", "GOD". When he repeats the closing line to close the album, that spirit work has become a profound journey--further proof that no one commands the conversation like Kendrick Lamar.
