#Section80 drops July 2nd.

    Kendrick is pretty damn overrated in a lot of respects, truthfully, overall, but to me, this is one of the tracks that made me think at first that he might be the next best thing. So yeah, the first three tracks in particular (this one is track #2) off of Section 80 were to me some of his better work on that album. I can see the flaws in his rhyming, and his technique, and song structures, on some of the other tracks, but.... I still like this one. And a few others. I'd probably only recommend a few choice cuts though from the album instead of the whole thing. Not that... not that really any of his tracks are necessary, so to speak... but... this one... is a good one. Tracks 1-3. Yeah. I think... those might be my main recommendations.... To anybody interested.... It starts to get a little on-and-off on the iffiness every once in a while from there...........

  • A break down of lyrics

    Here's a breakdown of his lyrics and meanings behind them Verse 1 I wrote this record while 30 thousand feet in the air Stewardess complimenting me on my nappy hair (meaning: Kendrick implies that his lifestyle includes lots of early morning flights with the 30 thousand feet line and the complimenting nappy hair line) If I can fuck her in front of all of these passengers (meaning: laboratory occupied) They’ll probably think I’m a terrorist (meaning: a beanie > turbin) Eat my asparagus (meaning: they serve asparagus on the plane; hes moving up in the world), then I’m asking her Thoughts of a young nigga Fast money and freedom A crash dummy for diamonds, I know you dyin’ to meet ‘em (meaning: Kendrick flirting with the girl, talking about life and flossin. He knows she wants to chill, because shes wants some diamonds) I’ll prob’ly die in a minute Just bury me with 20 bitches (meaning: less than 72 virgins, a muslim terriost reference?)20 million, and a Comptown fitted Verse 2 Back in this bitch in the back of that bitch With my back against the wall And your bitch on the edge of my dick Jump off (meaning:when he says “back in this bitch” he means hes having sex again with the same girl and hes having sex with her doggy style. in the next line he changes positions and hes on a wall with her being on the tip of his dick then he pushes her off) I call a bitch a bitch A ho a ho, a woman a woman (meaning: he calls it like he sees it) I never did nothing but break The ground on top of the asphalt (meaning: conceited about how powerful his skills are) Tire mark gave you evidence that I’m easily peddling with the speed of a lightning bolt As a kid I killed two adults, I’m too advanced I lived my 20's at two years old, the wiser man Truth be told, I’m like 87 (meaning: When he burns out you know he doesnt give a shit about the speed limits or stunting fines. Killing adults as a kid makes him ahead in the game. He was dealing with life problems as a child, he will tell you whats up. He acts like an old geezer / meaning 2: he was born in 87 plus, also this is reference to 22 two’s by Jay-Z) Wicked as 80 reverends in a pool Of fire with devils holding hands From the distance, don’t know Which one is a Christian.. damn Who can I trust in 2012? There’s no one Not even myself, a Gemini screaming for help, somebody (meaning: Not only does he act mature for his age, hes as wicked as throwing christains and devils in a pool of fire. From down the block you wouldnt be able to tell the difference between the christian and devil. Now that its 2012 you cant even trust yourself. people need to stay focused. He feels because of all the crazy wickedness he screams for help hopeing someone will hear. Its as tho nobody is around) Verse 3 24/7 nigga, workin’ his ass for it, she poppin’ that ass for it (meaning: he works all day long to have what he has, money, respect, ect. and the girl is showing off her ass for his money which in sense is how she works) The King of Diamonds wit’ diamonds I never do ask for They checkin’ my passport, I’m too accustomed with Customs She call in the task force, I killed it, somebody cuff ‘im They want me to fast-forward the game, and why you complain When you niggas is past poor, you’ll never hop in my lane When you pushin’ a RAV4, you wreckin’ my Jaguar (meaning: hes superior like jaguar > Rav4) You play like a bad sport, her feet on the dashboard Well thats what i gather from listening to this record 3 times over. Cant wait for section 80!

      u have no life

    • an add on

      Interesting breakdown. Heres what i caught from the record verse 1 If I can fuck her in front of all of these passengers They’ll probably think I’m a terrorist (translation: He could be saying that he is gonna kill the pussy if he fucks he. Which would make him a terrorist for killing on the plane) They checking my passport, I’m too accustomed with Customs (When you’re getting paid, you travel the world ofen. Customs are the people who piss you off by checking all of your luggage when you enter another country) She call in the task force, I killed it, somebody cuff em (They called for back-up because Kendrick killed the beat? *shrugs) Seems like a chilled record, but it does have some meanings in it when u break it down

  • abe

    it might be just me but kendrick and j cole remind me a lot of each other. similar flow, subject matter. not a bad thing both dudes are tight.

  • Kendrick Fan

    I love Lamar's music but this is shit. What happened to rapper's actually giving a fuck about their songs? It's okay though I'm sure Section 80 will be much much better.

      no effort at all? c'mon son he aint spitting all these lines for nothing, the shit just went over your head *shrugs*

      But thats where u & jack are wrong, its not just random bars, u just failed to get the metaphors & double entedres behind alot of the rhymes. LISTEN to the rhymes from start to finish and try to pick em up.

    • jack

      @kendrick fan that's why I think the song sucks too. Still idiots are defending it for some reason.

    • KendrickFan

      He raps randomass bars about being on an airplane and wanting to fuck the stewardess, it's like he just went into the studio and spent five minutes writing this. There's no fucking effort at all. "Eat my asparagus"? Really? There's maybe 4 good bars in the whole song. The beat is chill though, but a good beat doesn't always make a good song.

      how the fuck is this shit?? u cant just say that and not have a back-up.

  • swift

    Hol' Up this is hot

  • aniggnigg

    damn kenrick is rilly impressive as of late.

    Smoooooth Beat, Came like Andre 3000...Good Job dude.

  • shane

    thought i read bishop lamont at first so i was so confused why his voice sounded like that. Yo does any one else think it should b illegal to have sick verses and a hot old school beat like this and for the chorus b like "hol up hol up...hol up hol up" most annoying shit i cant understand how a rapper listens to that after words and thinks job well done. Good song tho.

  • Sean Dorsey

    this dude . . . . Maaaaaaan!

  • ApplePie1996

    Kendrick Lamar is THE SHIT!

  • Josue Silva

    Love these new artists in the game, kendrick, gibbs, krit, xv, ect...

  • DJ Panik

    this dude's songs are incredible...haven't heard one joint from him that disappointed me or that I was quick to stop after 7 seconds.

    shit is bangin' . 8 more days hii power #section80

  • Yeah

    The boy good. 3000ft in the air isnt very high tho. I give it a 5 star just cuz he being true to himself. Beat is boring tho. Lyrics on point tho. BEWARE OF THE NAS TRAP KENDRICK! Conscious rappers + boring beats = NO PAPER.

    • Dale P. Oats

      Niggah, cut it out! This is true Hip Hop, not bullshit talking about nothing of relevance. Listen to the words and the word play! It ain't about paper all the time because most rappers aint gettin paper from album sales... they get it from touring. But you'd proly sell your soul for a dollar, huh?!

    • Keith Hayden

      He said 30,000ft

    • tony

      Most artists do it for the love of music not the money.
