So Kendrick Lamar released a new album last night. I took sometime to reflect on each song, their lyrics and his motive. As I listen to the powerful instruments and charming lyrics, I feel like I’m missing something. The album reminds me of Bilal when he first came out; refreshing and expressive. Although Kendrick is giving me good vibes I feel like there is an unfinished sentence. The 14 song song album, could use a couple more songs and it could use a little lightening up. I understand we need to take life seriously, but at some point we must enjoy it, embrace it and change it. I believe his music is an anthem of empathy for black men, which is definitely over due. But when I go for music, I need more than just a plea for help and understanding.
