Comments

Ben Koren TV says:

Mate, Institutionalised is about people being brainwashed to commit crime and only changing when they consciously stop themselves and ‘wash their ass’.

briannashow says:

Obama himself said How Much a Dollar Cost was the best song of that entire year.

Diamond Hurd says:

it was so weird being at a kdot concert amongst white people yelling the lyrics “i dont want you monkey mouth mf sitting in my thrown again!”

Fraterang 2 says:

i watch this every couple months just to reassure me that being subscribed to anthony is a good choice

Brandon says:

I always watch this review and it always restarts my excitement for this album. Its just so perfect album and will always be my favorite album by kendrick. It also created my love for funk and jazz.

Anuj Mayapuri says:

First word in the video *DAMN*

Chip Robeson says:

Legit watched this as soon as it’s over… Would you look at the time it’s 4am I’m going to bed

TheHunter4065 says:

I still think this album is a genuine contender for the greatest rap album of all time

Shawn Defiore says:

Section 8: 8/10
GKMC: 9/10
TPAB: 10/10
DAMN: 7/10

:/ you couldn’t have broke the rules and gave DAMN an 11/10 but it’s okay we forgive you

Graeme Lane says:

When I first listened to this album I did have a really hard time listening to it, especially as an inexperienced novice in terms of listening to hip hop. I had only listened to a few GKMC songs which were easy to listen to, but as I realized the story that was being told my mind almost exploded. Its still the only album I have ever bought a physical copy of.

Cheeto Oteehc says:

I rate this review a TPAB/TPAB

GRAYSON HARDING says:

Why is TPAB a ‘better’ album than GKMC? Melon rated TPAB at 10/10 and GKMC at 9/10

Benj Ikeda says:

Two years later, I finally own this album on cd. Bless this album

Jack.exe says:

reverbthony reverbtano here.

No Name says:

I literally can’t pick a favorite song on here

c p says:

Banbambo does it again

Rational Black Man says:

Perfect

Versace Diaper says:

Oliver 420 says:

4:49 007 paper thrower

Alex Swedock says:

Michael Gira and Kendrick Lamar are going to team up and make Soundtracks For The Street Blind and Anthony’s going to full blast.

EpicZeke76 says:

Wtf King Kunta is the worst song

Sad Johnny says:

when you see the 22 minute run time

Post Malone says:

tarp influence

Moritz Vogt says:

Not one word about how much a dollar cost. not single one.

Lloyd Nix says:

Light to medium 0.

Maxwell McComb says:

Meat Spankin says:

Kendrick dick riding faggot

Nate watson says:

No mention of how much a dollar cost :(

Guy Willoughby says:

there is 2 syllables in poem

SPOGGETT says:

the only video i get off to every time

Andres Amariles says:

I put this album top 4 bcuz is not for everyone even if u are a hip-hop fan. But that doesn’t means that TPAB is not a phenomenal album.

the toad ! says:

Review action beats new album

Samuel Crowe says:

11:23 politics is ogres.

Josh Mills says:

King Kunta deserves a better explanation, King Kunta isn’t just some character Kendrick made. The song is based on a story called Roots which follows a guy named Kunta Kinte who was sold into slavery from Africa and shipped to America. I reccomend checking it out, there’s a mini series from 2016 if you want a nice, newer, polished retelling of the story

SuperLuigi22 says:

I don’t think any album has ever made me feel the way that this did. The deep message along with the AWESOME basslines and jazz elements makes me feel so great. I would give it an 11/10, but that’s over the limit, so 10/10 is perfect. Kendrick Lamar got me into hip hop and it is still my favorite hip hop album, possibly album in general.

Tyler Durden says:

Wait, you gave Corey Feldman a blow job and you let Kid Cudi buttfuck your melon but you only gave Kendrick a 10? Da fuck Fantano?!

Milan van Eijk says:

I most certainly do not always agree with you. And just like many others especially your views on DAMN. But! I gotta say. You do your research! And you def know your shit. So for that. KUDOS.

PS: Can you do a review on 6LACK – FREE 6LACK? I am really curious about your thoughts.

Charlie Horse says:

Hey good review but I don’t think you needed to call Kendrick the n word every 20 seconds …

Collin Reeves says:

I believe hood politics is Kendrick comparing his life in the hood to his life in the rap industry and saying how silly it is compared to the life he’s went through

Hilal Chehab says:

Most album Ive listened to in my entire life, and people still say it has no replay value smh

Micah Goodnight says:

Sometimes you review music that is so obscure that people without access to Metacritic would have difficulty finding it.  do you use Metacritic to decide what to review?
