Once again Kendrick Lamar has had another outstanding year. Another Grammy nominated album with ‘Damn’ , a successful world tour and a host of other accolades and awards to wrap up his 2017. He’s even starting off his 2018 with a half time performance at the NCAA National Championship football game as well as producing the sound track for the most anticipated movie of 2018, Black Panther.
Though Kendrick’s career in hip hop will already go down in history, it seems not everybody in hip hop agrees that he will go down in history as a top lyricist. Lupe Fiasco had this to say “I’ll put it to you like this. K. Dot is not a top tier lyricist to me and my standards when it comes to punchlines and bars. His overall lyrics are good, his stories phenomenal, but punchline entendre lyrically I don’t see it”. What do yall think?
