Surprise! Kendrick's New Album Dropped Today

Well, if this isn't the best Monday morning of the year, I don't know what is.

Last night, Kendrick Lamar - the (hands down) best rapper of my generation - dropped his highly anticipated new album, To Pimp A Butterfly. The follow-up to 2012's incredibly acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d city, is available on Spotify and iTunes a week prior to its publicized release date - therefore throwing music media into an excited frenzy when we woke up this morning.

Amid the bustle of my Monday morning routine, I've only made it through one listen, but I can tell you this: this album is history. Well, everything K-dot does is usually history-making - but, To Pimp A Butterfly's soul, grit, emotion and power is unparalleled. Parts of it are not easy, parts of it are smooth like glass - but all of it, every single beat, rhyme, theatric and quirk, is genius.

Do yourself a favour and buy the album now. Support real artists, support hip-hop history.
