I am tired of hearing dudes on rap about weed, how they are underrated, selling kilo's, and whatever other generic topic you can think of. I don't care if it's kendrick or any other rapper hip hop just needs for music like this.

    the drama it brings...crazy.

    Kendrick Lamar on that lyrical shit, mayonaise colored benz, he's pushin' miracle whips.

    "everyday we fight the system..we been down for too long but that's alright. we were built to be strong 'cause it's our life."

  • Maga D

    And Cole can produce for people outside his self? haha. Good beat, he also produced on Fashawn's newest tape. Wonder if K.R.I.T. can produce for other people?

  • Oak

    @Maga D

    Cole also produced for XV.

    And yeah KRIT can produce for other cats. He produces a lot of Smoke DZA tracks and he did "Glass House" on Kush & OJ. Nuff said...

    On Topic: This track is better than I expected which is saying a lot because I think Kendrick is a really good lyricist and song writer. I was also surprised by the beat. Cole did his thing on this one and he is definitely improving his craft. Good to see music like this coming out. I'm happy to support stuff like this.

    Whover those people were who put a thumbs down are some supreme haters and wouldn't know good music if it slapped em in the face.

  • Maga D

    @Oak: Glass house is the same track from KRIT WUZ HERE, so it's a KRIT song that Wiz was featured on. But I heard that XV track too, pretty good. Me personally though, Gotta say Kendrick's on another level than these cats, Cole included.

  • jwiii

    Stop that nonsense talk! It's easy to replicate a style once it's laid out in front of you. It's hard to create one. Either way I just think they paying respect to the style by trying to replicate it themselves more than they are trying to put it off as they're own.

  • Maga D

    Marty: I'd say yes to that, not even close. Lucky KDOT doesn't make beats though.

  • Yeah

    Itunes link doesnt even work -__-

  • CZ

    LOL at the people saying he bit Kanye lines. If you don't understand why he is referencing specific lines then you shouldn't be commenting about the song. There is a clear intention if you listen to the song.

  • Oak

    @Maga D

    Man I been thinkin the same thing lately. Dude spazzes on his shit. But at the same time I think KRIT, Cole and Kendrick are all gonna have their own unique movements. 5 years from now at least one of these dudes will be on top.

  • Jonesy Stark

    Dope, dope, dope. Expect nathan less from Kendrick. Them TDE boys always come correct.

  • marty mcfly

    I think sometimes people should bite Kanyes style from his last album cause it would only push the culture forward creatively. Kanye makes up new styles like its nothing and he dont give a fuck anyway cause he knows his style has to many layers to be fully copied. Also Kendrick and J cole are obviously checking to see how much their fans want a project from them. They can only prove that to the machine behind them by numbers. @ Maga D , the student cant be greater then the teacher and it think its clear that his whole style on THIS SONG , from cadence to flow to even rhyme scheme is 100% Kanye west. Again though im not mad at that cause what Kendrick is saying still holds alot of weight if you understand what hes saying so its all good.

  • mvdec

    he referenced charolettes webb - fuck the world- i told yall, second golden age of hiphop is about to be here

  • http://alanpagedc.com spirit equality

    pretty dope stuff, i just can't wait for rappers to stop talking about whether or not rappers are in the illuminati. that topic was dead before jay and ye even brought it up. considering all the serious issues facing black people that aren't an alleged conspiracy, but can be found in any newspaper, we have way more pressing matters to discuss...

    and what's with the weird reference to demons taking him over? the funny thing about the illuminati denying rappers (ye, kendrick here) is they're always making some sort of reference to the devil or demons, which is what the illuminati allegedly is hooked into. jay with that out of left field line about "jesus can't save you" in a song about new york was pretty odd too. it's like he forgot what song he was doing and started kicking leftover lines from "lucifer".

  • mvdec

    and he screamed thug ilfe at the end - smh - him jay elect and jcole , thats all im sayin

  • jwiii

    Jay-z's line about RELGION in Empire State of Mind makes perfect sense. God/whatever religious belief you chose can't save you if you ain't ready to save yourself. He's talking about the corrupt churches in the community. Open your mind. Jay on some real shit and too many block it out because he discussed a topic too many won't address. Saigon also discussed it on GSNT. Y'all need to stop acting like hip-hop disappeared. From Saigon to Reks, it's always been around even with Nas & Jay

    do some of you know how many different times kendrick flips his flow,and cadences?...this dude has a myriad of songs where he's rapping different on all of them...making a big deal out of that shit with him is retarded..this dude murdered this song...he even made a dope hook that had variations in it...kendrick is a billion times the mc that kanye is...catch up on kendrick's catalouge..

  • marty mcfly

    @spirit equality , the illuminati aint about devil worshipping. They were just accused of worshipping the devil after the people who were believed to be a part of the group declared that they wanted religious independence. The illuminati was a fear tactic put in place to keep people afraid of anyone who claimed to be enlightened in the 1800s.

  • Sylver21

    @bob jus cuz he says "uhh" at the beginning of the verses in "junkies" doesnt mean that's kanye. its the way he's doin it here, like a pucntuation at the end of each bar. and sounds like ye here too. I'm referring specifically to ye on "hell of a life". he ends certain lines like that and thats what this reminded me of....but i agree with @queens point that K lamar has a plethora of flows and rhyme schemes. it makes it that much more difficult to pinpoint his influences.

    but once again, this song is sick. why not pony up the dollar and support a dope artist?

  • NYC/BROOKLYN

    another faggot beat by A. Hole. this kenEAT-A-DICK Lamar Odom nigga with some carjacking rhyme flow. nigga trying too hard to sound like Pusha T and Kanye West. what the fuck is a "hyroglips"? nigga needs to go back to get that G.E.D. education. this nigga is all over the place with his wack rhymes. nigga throwing in that thuglife stamp at the end of the track thinking that supposed to solidify him as a rapper. funny shit is this nigga's album will probably drop first than A. Hole's shit. speaking on A. Hole, that nigga needs to stop making these BS faggot beats. A. Hole YOU DONE FAILED ALREADY!!!!

    It's more than the So Appalled influences. This entire song is purposely borrowing from Kanye's MBDTF sessions. Listen to this beat then go listen to Chain Heavy. You'll hear the similarities in the music.

  • woww

    you all are retarted. first off, Q-Tip produced Chain Heavy so Cole isn't bitin Kanye at all, nor is he bitin Q-Tip because they don't even sound that similar.

    2nd of all, kendrick isn't biting anything from kanye besides the so appalled line. kendrick RIPPED this beat to shreds. Cole production is getting amazing between this and "Smallville". Can't wait to see the gems he saved for his album and the mixtape with Kendrick.

    stop inventing reasons to hate on cole and kendrick, they're simply on a different level than all these other lames.

    So yeah, Kendrick included those type flows and lyrics for a reason. People don't actually listen to the song anymore, do they? And it's weird how people go from being on the fence about Kendrick and then a song produced by J. Cole comes out and now they like dude. His first two albums were fire too..

    and yeah kendrick IS lyrically better than kanye for the simple fact that he flipped this style of rapping better than kanye (trying to flip pusha t's style) and can flip many other styles of rhyming that kanye simply cant do. Anyone whos listened to all of lamar's shit knows that.

    same question with jay z dude was rapping about "aint no nigga" with a 17 year old foxy brown talkin about crack deals talkin about killin and talkin about hoes...in 96..
    hes always had not to positive a message..so y was he cool then? but not now? how did he change to something more negative in ur opinion??

  • LupeFaco

    why does the comments get worse as u scroll down ??????

  • marty mcfly

    First off I wanna know what can the illuminati offer to a a successful rapper? Why do you have to make up a false reason why Jay z is so successful? Maybe it was hard work that got these artists where they are. 2nd people need to stop with this Kendrick is better the Kanye West because thats crazy. It aint just a few lines that Kendrick is delivering like Kanye , its every single word of the song is Kanyes flow from top to bottom. I know Kendrick has more then one style but on this one just keep it real. And if all this illuminati shit was true , there is no way a rapper could be involved because that would actually be a threat to a organization that wants to rule the world. If there are world leaders and bankers and devil worshippers that move in silence then I dont see them having rappers with huge fanbases being able to be apart of that. That would be a conflict of interest.

    That negativity isn't sponsored by a group.

    It's called urban culture.

    I'm majoring to become an urban planner and my 1 dream would be to find a way to repair "broken" communities.
    But when urban communities idolize Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, and stuff of that nature it's clear they don't want change.

  • http://bbc.co.uk p.gooden

    ^what? they don't want change???

    no, red, you're not willing to fight to get them out of their negativity.

    weak excuse. you're the one that's hopeless, not them.

  • marty mcfly

    @ BillyClint , These rappers come from the street and they are telling the truth about society and the truth is that the streets are negative. Jay Z talks about his life just like Mos Def and their lives and if that comes across negative then its just the truth. The world is not happy land and its not full of positiveity , anyone acting like it is is lying to themselves. How can anyone say Jay Z is being negative? Do you listen to music or do you just skim through it?

  • marty mcfly

    Jay z hides jewels in the music that we have all learned from. If your a fan of hip hop , even if you dont like Jay z there is no way you havent learned something from Jay Z.

  • Saturday Is Record Store Day

    @red Thats some cool shit man. Unfortunately, it seems like the easiest, or at least the most obvious, way to salvage a broken community is to separate the people that want to improve themselves from those that perpetually live at the status quo. As it stands now, we do this via the Judicial System, in black-and-white fashion, with almost no goal of rehabilitation. Hopefully youre the one that teaches communities to help themselves, instead of just trying to hack out the cancer.

    ...ps, just ignore @p.gooden, the naivety and ignorance is obvious

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com BillyClint

    red< i dont mean a group as in literally...

    martymcfly< jay even said it himself.."truthfully i wanna rhyme like common sense..but i did 5mill i aint been rhymin like common since". he addresses it on moment of clarity but says he does it for a greater good "so how can i help the poor if im one of them". its obvious the majority of stuff is negative dude.

  • red

    Trust me I haven't given up. I'm only a student so I can't do much but I do my part. I organize community centers, I turn brownfields into community gardens, and I do all sorts of volunteer work.

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com BillyClint

    Saturday Is Record Store Day < p.gooden has a point tho...its not only rap listeners fault, its poor education , housing, benefits, the jail industrial complex system (which is run for profit) disproportionate stopping of blacks by police, prejudice,
    despite that gucci n em make it worse for some youngsters by changing their minds if the trap rappers dissaperaed tomorrow there wud still b a hell of a lot of work to do.

  • red

    Oh yea there's no question about it. Trap music isn't the root of the problem but I do think it's one of the problems.

    I've racked my brain over this problem for about a year now, but I've hardly made any progress in finding a silver bullet for repairing bad neighborhoods. And even if I did find something I don't know where I'd find the funding to implement it.

    With all their flaunting of material wealth you'd think the Gucci's would do something meaningful to help their city, but I don't think they even want to see it change.

  • Saturday Is Record Store Day

    Oh, no, thats not what I meant at all, and if I misinterpreted @p.gooden's comment, then my sincere apologies.

    I interpreted his comment as saying that everybody was ready or able to improve, and that their success was simply a matter of @red's will to change them. I found this to be intensely immature and naive. Naive, because there ARE people, and many of them, that are simply unwilling to put forth any effort towards bettering themselves or their surroundings. And immature because its not @red's responsibility to improve anybody in the first place, that job lies with the members of the community. I mean thank God for people like @red, but they certainly cant be blamed for the faults of others.

    But no, youll never catch me claiming that rap is the root of all evil, and I didnt mean to come off that way.

  • red

    And thanks @Saturday Is Record Store Day

  • marty mcfly

    @BillyClint , Jay has to make that choice to gain position cause at the end of the day , the culture is gonna need money to make a big difference. Jay Z builds water pumps all over africa so the people there can have fresh water. Its in his nature to be a hustler and to be number one , he cant fight that he wants to be on top. I think the majority of his stuff is positive but he just comes from negative streets. @ red , what people in the streets need is SELF LOVE and not just because you have money or some material shit. Everyone has something special about them but until they find what it is , their gonna act destructive. Once they find what their gift is and what makes them happy they are forced to think different. They have to be shown examples of successful people who make positive changes in different areas of life and business. They only reason people look up to rappers is cause they dont understand themselves. My cousin told me he wants to rhyme like 2pac , I said why would you do that cause what if you were destined to rhyme greater then 2pac... Those kids need knowledge of who they are and who they can be.

    @Marty McFly

    I feel you 100% on that. Role models and recognition of self worth are exactly what grade school students need. Still, I help organize workshops, talent shows, after school programs for grade school students and a lot of the times turnout sucks...

  • marty mcfly

    Also red you have to find the chosen ones out of the group. What I mean is , out of every classroom or group of kids or family you have to find the ONE or ONES. The people who are natural leaders and are good people by nature because those people have an effect on the others around them. Once you find some gifted kids who are smart and have influence on the popular kids and rest of the community. Give them the chance to put together some events and chances are the kids who follow them will show up. You mite only find one special kid out of the group but that kid has more influence then teachers do. Its like walking through Queens looking for someone with the intellect of Nas. It mite take a while but once for find the kids you have direction use them to influence the others by giving them tasks that force them to use their gifts and think outside the box. If by doing so you also find a way to show them how to raise money as a group and individually , that always helps.

    Lets go ahead and say that there IS and Illuminati, and they really do want my soul. What difference does that make to me, or you, or anybody anyway? I mean what exactly are u gonna do about it?

    Cuz it seems to me that making youtube videos and freaking out on 2Dopeboyz really wouldnt make any difference at all against Satan's armys. Do u have another plan?

  • AMP

    Truth please stop my stomach hurts I haven't laughed like this since the first time I saw The Other Guys (which was probably produced by the Illuminati and played in the Illuminati ran AMC theaters playing in the Illuminati controlled city of Buffalo, the largest city in Illuminati controlled Erie County, a northwestern county of Illuminati New York, part of the Illuminati controlled East Coast of Illuminati United States of America).

    The videos prove you're not a troll (unless you are the most compelling troll of all time) which is simply amazing to me. You must have had a reallllly fucked up life to end up like this.

  • Truthfully

    So then the next logical question would be: Why spend so much time stressing about it? Why worry so much about "informing" people, if it makes no difference anyway?

  • http://www.yaboyrampz.deviantart.com/ rmpwolf

    Who gives a FUCK whose in the Illuminati and who isn't?! I don't understand how it effects anybody. I could fully post up "666 MURDER JESUS FUCK GOD" all over the net and it would not make one iota of a difference between me and my relationship with God so I don't see how if another person does shit it effects you in the slightest. You conspiracy theorists need to do something more valuable with your time than chase ghosts and mysteries like follow your dreams and aspirations. And further more even if the Illuminati and all these people are doing corrupt shit what are YOU doing to make the world a better place and counteract it? Fucking Scooby Doo mystery machine ass niggas.

    Aight I'm done lol.

    @Truthfully Thank fuck there's someone other than me who sees how illogical all that shit is. Whether you know whose in the Illuminati or not makes no difference to anyone's life period. Niggas still have bills to pay, seeds to feed and work to be done.

  • marty mcfly

    @ The Truth , all that shit is propaganda !!! I could take any artist or picture or sign or any subject matter and say it has something to do wit illuminati. I could take parts of any movie or parts of any language and say its illuminati. The message people put in the music or in their pictures are what is called Artistic expression. If I draw a picture of me flying on a dragon that doesnt mean that dragons are real or that I worship the devil , it just means I have a good imagination and thats all I wanted to convey. People will of course take something like that image out of context and passed its original intent. If artists like Outkast make albums like ATliens that is called being artistic and all forms of art can be historically taken back hundreds of years and then linked to religion. You cant take over the world by making secret handshakes and signs and flashing them in the media cause that plan would take a million years to even make a small effect and all this talk about the devil and his worshippers... Stop cause truthfully if the devil or any of his people knocked on my door I would beat the shit outta them end of story. Its called ART and all artistic expression can be linked to something evil cause people are always looking for something evil to say.

  • spider mcnulty

    artistic expression = lame excuse. my point goes to the truth. keep on with this debate. i got my popcorn ready.rofl

  • Truthfully

    Actually, more than anything, u seem to be hurting yourself. I mean, its pretty obvious that u have no life to speak of (youve been on the same webpage literally all day long)- has it ever occurred to you that maybe thats because youre much too worried about this silly little theory? Why dont u try actually enjoying this world before it ends?

    And other than that, u seem to be doing your peers a disservice. My grandfather recently died of a stroke that he knew was coming for 2 years. One of the last conversations that I had with him, he told me he would have been much happier if the doctors had never told him, because he was dreading his death instead of living for those last 2 years.

    So really, no matter which way u look at it, u seem to be wasting an awful lot of time and energy. But then again, I clearly just dont get it anyway.

  • http://www.biblegateway.com/ redface pete

    You all need to shut it. Truth is the maaaaaaaaaaaan.Who you know posting facts?= when it comes to the illuminati debate? and the dude has videos. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT???!

    I'm not saying he's a prophet. But if you ACTUALLY WATCH his videos and READ his comments, the brother is on point.

    And Truthfully, you've been on here the whole day too. C'mon, son. You troll more than a homeless man under a bridge. And stop acting all enlightened. You sound ignorant!!!

    Hmm... slighly under a half hour = all day, apparently. If youd like, I can link to some great pages that teach basic math to children.

  • iK3yM

    I feel Kendrick when he says, "I'll be off the slave ships... Building pyramids, making my own hieroglyphs." He talking about not being a slave to his culture. Its about about knowledge of self (hieroglyphs) and building yourself (pyramids.)

  • marty mcfly

    Get up off them slaveships , build your own pyramids , write your own hieroglyphs just call this shit high power. - Kendrick is using artistic expression that anybody can take out of context and turn something thats meant to be spiritual and artistically beautiful into something evil. Stop saying rappers are working with evil forces to hurt the world. Cause the the people in hip hop come from poverty not from rich families who have controlled wealth for centuries like the Rothchilds. Hip Hops original intent was to be a force of change for the better and to be the voice of people with nothing. Not be the voice of rich people with evil plans of world domination. Stop watching science fiction movies and go out into the real world.

  • VOTP

    Kendrick Lamar is the real shit! Goddamn this is Hip Hop!

  • strangeperson

    @TheTruth if these rappers are in the illuminati how are they doing the devils work cole inspires some kids to go to college and kendrick is allways on some enlightenment stuff but I just wanna know what they are possibly doing to corrupt the minds of people everywhere

  • Franklin

    Once upon a time, everybody in the world believed in the Illuminati, but then they created a brainwashing drug that made everybody dumber so that they would forget. But now, people have gotten so dumb that theyve actually started misinterpreting stupid, meaningless crap in music videos, and theyre starting to believe in the Illuminati again. Cut it out fools, youre gonna get us brainwashed again.

    @ marty mcfly

    You said, "Kendrick is using artistic expression that anybody can take out of context and turn something thats meant to be spiritual and artistically beautiful into something evil." I completely agree with that statement and I think that is what is great about this song. It can be taken anyway. It challenges people to think and maybe change their attitude on some subjects. I think that is what a true artist/song is supposed to do.

  • marty mcfly

    ^^^Exactly , I know when Jay Elec comes out all these conspiracy theorists are gonna go to work with all their evil propaganda but its cool cause there are people who will defend this hip hop shit at all cost.

    @ marty mclfy

    Yeah, I feel you. I remember when Jay Elec dropped "The Announcement" and people started talking crap about how he's w/ the illuminati cause he's signed w/ Roc nation. But, I see what he's really trying to do for hiphop. Him, Kendrick, and others. Now that I think about it, I would absolutely love to see a Kendrick Lamar and Jay Elec collabo! That would be pure epicness...

  • Braniak

    I've watched some videos....Man makes you wanna scratch your head.

  • REALLY!

    @ The Truth

    You say "kendrick is in the Illuminati" yet he disses the Illuminati in this very song. And then you say "Tupac and Martin Luther King was in the Illuminati" when its a known fact that Pac is against the Illuminati and MLK is a Christian. What a joke. Also I used to watch your vids until you got to Lupe Fiasco and thats when I saw that you are truly miss informed.
    There was little stuff in your other vids that brought up red flags but they was small enough for me to ignore them. But now I know that you don't know what you are talking about.

  • iK3yM

    ^^^ Are you talking about Jay Electronica?

  • IZM

    Im not worried about the Illuminati at all anymore, and all thanks to "The Truth". Really tho, think about it- it cant be much of a conspiracy if EVERYBODY is in it.

  • ThedayIfellinLovewithHipHop

    Its too bad that the subject has went from the great music to the basics of illuminati. I don't care about the illuminati (though you should really type in illuminati in backwards .com) Its too much to stress over when things not right in our world today. Any who, Kendrick mf'n Lamar and J. that nigga Cole just delivered something epic. Kendrick may have sample a line or a flow but his lyrics reach somewhere hip hop hasn't been in a low time. His lyrics is motivation. inspiration. Don't think to hard and allow a common flow or sampled line or even a illumanti theroy distract you from good music. Hip hop got a future. Embrace it. Don't hold it back.

    Anybody with a domain name can do the illuminati backwards trick. (Typing in illuminati backwards with .com at the end brings you to a government website). The person that owns domain name just wrote in the code to redirect it to nsa.gov.

    Kendrick did not do bad on this beat. But this beat is more tailored for Game or Joe Budden.

    It's actually pretty amusing about what the Truth said...but I still believe the Illuminati is real. I mean, just look at the signs and the things these artists DO! Stop being a sheep for the illuminati and the government.

    Loved this song dope as hell. Funny how people think they know these artist and know there devil worshippers. Why people can't have God given talent? Man Congrats Kendrick you've come a long way blodd sweat and tears. TO all the people saying he's part of the illuminati fuck off.
