  • Section80

    i remember when 2dopeboyz first put out kendrick lamar with those 2 first ever tracks sayin he was a cat from compton and a rising dude never knew he would get this far,
    listening to this album all day smoking, this dude is just starting.

  • section.80!

    wow. i was skeptical. but it blew me away. amazing.

  • Dorian

    Pirates stop being so lame.

  • Just Read

    why people are so quick to call an album a classic I swear Hip hop is not the same because yah dont know what makes a Great rapper and yah dont know what makes a Great album just because you a fan doest mean that everything your Favorite artist put out is good. I could criticize this whole album and pick out its flaws and what it lacks to be a classic. Kendrick got hard punchlines and lyrics but his words don't stick out and it not catchy ,boring ! He need to work on his delivery to draw attention to his lines.

  • dddddsssss

    wow the links disappear fast
    shake must be here with the delete button
    shake!!! WHAT UP hows ur friday nite u still use the word hella?!?

  • hater420

    been waiting so long to hate on this album

  • nito

    can someone tell me the reason why artist do this? that is releasing an album in one part of the world instead of just releasing it everywhere at the same time?

  • sinkMYduck

    man I just got this and so far, WOW! FINALLY a few weeks of good ass music, Big Seans, Currensy's and this one.... Man my ear buds are going ape shit in these beats right now....

    @just read: I do agree the term "CLASSIC ALBUM" has gotten thrown around so much that it doesn't have that sting that it use too. I just say so far it's a great album..

  • joeyJay

    @nito
    U have to remember that they're a full day ahead of us bruh. thats why they got it already

  • duh.

    @nito: time zones.

  • gasface

    its available here you big dummy's....GOOGLE is your friend....wink wink

  • foh

    this album is FUCKING TRASH. Go listen to illmatic or reasonable doubt you internet fags. this nigga is week. he belongs in the same category as oj da juice man and waka floka. FOH with this emo hip-hop

  • JWIII

    I bought it for $7.99 after I downloaded. Always preview before purchase. The i-tunes link worked just fine.

    On first listen, great album. Consistent atmosphere with just enough diversity in instrumentation that it doesn't get boring. Lamar can flow, arguably with the best of them, and spit. He's brutally honest and isn't apologetic or resentful. He's one of the modern day griots.

  • LAsVeryOwn

    Kendrick sums it up best: "see a lot of yall dont understand kendrick lamar because you wonder how i could talk about money, hoes, clothes, God, & history all in the same sentence. you know what all them things have in common? Only half the truth, IF YOU TELL IT." haha

  • shane

    kendrick can have my money every time he drops anything. Support good music. BUY IT. TDE is some of the best in the bizness

  • gasface

    .....AND AND AND....I just stumbled across some "leaked" photos of Amber Rose naked and shit

  • Killuminati

    LMAO @ FOH. This guy! ignorant & not vigilant thats what you are. You'll be crying when government fucks you in the ass and then Kendrick Lamar will be saying "I Told You Nigga"

  • TonyStarks

    album is Incredible...

  • Thunder Pride

    Saigon's The Greatest Story Never Told completely destroys Section.80 This is a quality album but fuck outta here with that classic shit. Kendrick could just make fart noises on a track and you guys would say, "hes trying to make a point that farting in public is rude. I think it is a really dope concept." I like Kendrick but you guys are acting like he is the next Michael Jordan when he is more like Penny Hardaway. Overly Dedicated was way over hyped. Im not hating on Kendrick (him, KRIT & Cole are my favorites in the New School) but you "dopeboyz" need to clear your throat before you completely choke on Kendrick's dick.

  • Benji

    People please support this man. He's on his grind and giving incredible music for only $7.99?? BUY SECTION.80!!

  • JWIII

    Let's all just rejoice in the beautiful music that's been coming to light. From Saigon GSTNT to Reks R.E.K.S to Elzhi Elhmatic to Lamar's Section.80 to many more... For me, I respect the honesty each and talent these artists are displaying.

  • mighty

    Nowadays if albums aren't fucking "CLASSIC" they get nothing but hate....fuck that shit...I'm not claiming this to be a classic at all but whatever happened to just listening to albums and or mixtapes for what they are...which is some damn music....shit your fuckers get the shit for free so quit fucking whining about it and shut the fuck up and just appreciate each release for what it is "CLASSIC" or not!!!!!!!!!

  • QB

    To the cats that are like, “OD was better” I think it’s too early to say man.. One thing about all of Black Hippy (cept Jay Rock, but he’s aight), is that their albums get better with each listen. Schoolboy Q got me like that.. give it time. Either way, this is a f’kn great album!

    Section 80 is about us, the children of the 80s and how we're so much more than we've ever been lead to believe. Support Lamar, cop his music. Act.

  • tabosko

    ab souls outro.......PRICELESS!

  • http://aqmag.net ANFSTUDIO_LAX

    Section80 production is miles beyond the Overly Dedicated project. Subject matter is highly evolved from OD as well. Kendrick is touching on subjects that most emcees in his age bracket are to scared to approach. I like that the cover ties in so nicely with the overall arch of the LP: Society's up & downs....the things that make us strong and the things that make us weak which just makes us human and fallible but capable of greatness.

    Def top of the list in regards to independent music releases of 2011 thus far.

  • JWIII

    It's beautiful, godly inspiration music. It's raw, brutal, and honest. I hope the other recordings from this project will be released.

  • Pugz

    hard to say which is better, each album has a slightly different style...i like the Kendrick Lamar EP more than OD or this, but dont get it confused, most of what kendrick puts out is fire, along with this, and im digging the jazzy feel to it....as far as people hatin, do what you gotta do and go listen to what you think is good, just keep your bullshit out my headphones

    My thoughts exactly, its a really dope project but not on no next level shit. Well worth the $8 though

  • yeah

    I know this is kinda stupid, but is the album called "Section.80" or "#Section80". I see it written differently everywhere?

  • jtherapy

    I just finished listening to the album and IMO its above average, but definitely NOT a classic. I already heard the dopest track Hiiipower(poe mans dream is crazy as well)

  • MOFO

    What do u mean "out of respect for k. Dot"
    Honestly im tired off all thIs bullshit music were rappers are speaking threw
    There music but at the same time Are mocking fans
    AND THATS WHY im "ILLEGALLY DOWNLOADING THIS PROJECT"
    .... His latest ustream say it all.
    .... SHIT IS NOT COOL NO MORE

  • http://www.twitter.com/jacken_88 jacken_88

    Ok, just got done listening to thee entire album...

    Favorite songs (outside of hiiipower and ronald reagan era):

    Fuck Yo Ethicnity
    No Make Up
    Poe Man's Dream
    Keisha's song
    Rigamortis (kendrick went inn!)
    Ab-Soul's Outro (ab-soul went inn!)
    Kush & Corinthians

    only track i skip is members only (the weakest song imo)
    and even tho i get the structure of the entire album from start to finish, he could of done a little more with the chapter interludes too. Thats about it for my criticism on the album.

    Imo the subject matter is on-par w/ o.d. and like i said i think the production was better on this shit than o.d.

    Overrall, i really love this album.

    Please, out of respect for Kendrick Lamar, don’t put album links in the c-section.”

  • question

    So I have a question is this considered a mixtape? Like OD from Kendrick?

    I dont understand the difference between an album and a mixtape can someone help me

  • http://facebook Mr3-18

    i just heard the entire album it's fucking what I wanted from Hip Hop.

  • http://facebook Mr3-18

    I got It at about 6:00pm had to smoke for this one most defenitely

  • DouglasFresh

    Mixtapes and albums are pretty much just names at this point, traditionally a mixtape was a rapper throwing verses over other people's production, but now it's basically a misnomer for free albums. O.D. was a "mixtape" that Kendrick gave away for free, but also offered as a paid download on itunes if you wanted to support, whereas this is a straight up album, you gotta buy it (or cop it illegally... if you're a dick.)

    Also, just listened to the Fuck Your Ethnicity, gave me chills. Calling a preemptive album of the year.

    @question a digital album.

  • derek

    the album is good, really good. and calling it a classic it's not that big of an exaggeration, if at all. give it a couple listens.

  • derek

    i think some of yall are spoiled by the quality of OD. So since this isn't light years over O.D your not impressed. remembe O.D itself was amazing it self.

  • Pugz

    @boywonda naw because i didn't say he is in their company now. i said when its all said and done, just wait. I'm making a bold prediction. you should respect that, and realize im not being ignorant saying he's the greatest yet or even soon.

  • marty mcfly

    I will say that its good to see how many people are excited by a album these days cause that feeling was leaving the game but im really surprised to see that people still have an appreciation for jazz and its influences on hip hop. Im an 80s baby for real meaning I was out riding my big wheel and running around my neighborhood in the 80s. So ill give it up tp Kendrick for bridging the gap between oldschool and newschool. Even though my opinion is still the same about section 80 as a project ( as stated in the last section about Kendrick ) its still good to see people appreciate dope hip hop other then just the gimmicks and the radio shit. DOPE

    Stop bringing up the word classic. Will you REALLY be bumping this in ten years? Is this an Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, MMLP, Ready to Die.. etc.? No. So don't throw around the word classic.

  • http://thievesintheknight.blogspot.com/ bucknasty

    People throw the word classic around too much. This is easily one of the best releases of the year, the best thing Kendrick's ever done. But no, it's no Reasonable Doubt or Illmatic.

  • NYC/BROOKLYN

    thank god I made the decision on using my money to buy a 40 instead of buying this album. I give the brother Kendrick alot of credit for the effort and dropping the project independently. looks like he has alot of family and friends calling the album a classic on the c-section. that's kool, I guess, but I'm from that era where joints had to age before it can be called a classic.

  • leutrim rexhaj

    This album is a great debut but it isnt a classic, i give it 4/5 stars. consistent production consistent lyrics good concepts good guest features, but very little that is AMAZING, i feel like from black hippy he is the most consistently good but absoul and schoolboy q are capable of singularly better songs, jay rock is just the weakest member. ab soul has songs like moscato, still a regular niogga and hell yeah, schoolboy q has songs like figg get da money, kamikaze and ibetigotsumweed

  • thatrealshit

    im not gonna call this a classic yet, but this shit def has the potential to become one. as a concept album this shit is pretty incredible. never seen an album where the entire theme is life's ills and this project paints that picture almost perfectly. this really is a dope piece of hip hop and it'll probly get better with age as most lyrical shit like this does. respect to kendrick, this really reminds me of an old blackstar joint or ATCQ, classic feel

  • Ab-Souls Outro

    5 mic or XXL rating

    Kendrick Lamar this young man just drop a classic

    Some of these clowns commenting and comparing cd's (Artist will remain nameless) to kendrick's section 80

    Are just pussy ass niggas

  • Too Many Humans

    Damn I mean we got dudes on here arguing over whether this is a classic or not. 1) Can we make some kind of 10 year rule before anybody is allowed to use that word? and 2) The fact that this is even a conversation right now should pretty much tell u everything u need to know. Lets just give credit where credit is due and call it amazing.

  • marty mcfly

    I just wanna say something real fast cause im on one right now but its honestly some real shit. The song Reagan Era hits me the hardest because I remember being young like around 7 or 8 years old and watching TV and seeing Reagan give a speech about the war on drugs and then I look over and see my cousin breakin down a kilo on my grandmas kitchen table. I say all that to say that that song really hits home for me cause what hes speaking on has a direct impact on my life. So I dont think this is classic but I think if he stays on this same page he mite have a chance on dropping some classic music in the future. Just sayin

  • LAsVeryOwn

    @Too Many Humans: Word!!!

  • thatrealshit

    "i'm not on the outside lookin in, i'm not on the inside lookin out. i'm in the dead fuckin center lookin around!" if that outro doesnt make this album a classic in itself idk wat a classic album is. one more for ya mind... "i'm not the next pop star, i'm not the next socially aware rapper, i am a human fucking being over dope ass instrumentation. kendrick lamar." thats real fuckin shit, my nigga kendrick

    kinda felt a little let down with this release :\ after hiiipower i was expecting some bangers! but the album kinda took off really slowly. still about 4 good tracks tho

  • Chris

    Lol my first ITune's buy was Ghostface Iron man cuz I had no computer but needed too hear it. But I love this album, it's different. People getting tight cuz fans calling it classic, it doesn't matter opinion is one's own. People ranting is silly, just enjoy music, it shows hip hop far from dead.

  • SUPERSLIM64

    in due time, this will be a classic. Theres nothing wrong with this album..

  • risen357

    *plugs in ipod*

  • Trueff

    Fuckin love this album. I'm confused though, kendrick says he dont smoke weed. yet every other song he talkin about smokin weed? kinda sellin out to the marijuana culture if he doesnt smoke, cause that shit would just be fake. and if he does smoke, just come clean about it! nobody gives a fuck!!

    Do not get me wrong; I like Kendrick! Why does every comment for every new album always have stans calling an album classic? I'm starting to think some of these people don't know what a classic is... You can like some shit without declaring it as a classic! People are acting like Bieber fans!

  • LAsVeryOwn

    its 730am cst and the album is #6 on itunes. not JUST the Hip Hop/Rap Section...did O.D. get that much downloads?

  • Billy

    hi mom< *dead*

    Why does every comment for every new album always have stans calling an album classic? < y every1 so ANTSY about fans callin it a classic?? THE general consensus is its an amazing album so lets b happy we got another great hiphop album we can all enjoy. even illmatic wasnt called a classic when it came out...so lets celebrate it not hate on it!

  • a.d.h.d,

    "8 doobies 2 the face fuck dot" ahh fuck ths shit is flames

  • Billy

  • hiiipower

  • Sdot

    How they going to use Neako Flossin beat?

  • NobodyImportant

    this shit is one word. Powerful. Classic album. I loved it from top to bottom.

  • Crash

    Why didn't yall say that same "outta respect" shit for big sean's album,the favoritism with this nigga is amazing to me

  • pack

    @Sdot

    It's not the same beat, its just that everybody's sampling that Wood Kid shit now. Kendrick's version is the best so far tho.

  • NEW YORK NY

    POST THAT LINK FAM WE BOOTLEG EVERYTHING IN NEW FRUCK THAT 7.99 THATS CHINESE FOOD AND A BREW !

  • Where the Haters At

    What up doe? Kendrick the future

  • Sdot

    @pack yeah i do agree Kendrick's is the best but Neako also had a solid track with that sample probably his strongest track on Loudpack. Thanks for educating me on the beat though

  • efalk

    album of the year

  • trueplaya

    This and Lil B album made my day. Both of the albums is FIRE. Real talk. Kendrick delivered. All of the tracks are good to me. And now that u listen to the album as a whole, that Tammy's Song fits and it's not even that wack. The album is so dope. My nigga Kendrick know how to make piff. Schoolboy Q jacked T.I. and Ye flow from that Welcome To The World trac on Spiteful Chant tho lol. But still shits fire. Section 80 hoe!

  • Bobby Ray

    #Random
    man lowkey these cats eating w/the itunes releases.. i mean 8 bucks a pop is pretty damn good considering if the cheapskates dont download it.. what's funny is how ppl r the biggest fans of a new school rapper, and soon as they put their newest project up for sale on itunes, the "fans" complain.. "man why is it not free?" i mean, do u expect these guys to just want to sit around and give u free album/tape after free/album tape? i mean it's not free for them to make the shit so why do u think u deserve it for free?

    oh yea.. the album is fiyah tho! aye!

  • markaveli

    CLASSIC !!!

  • efalk

    @torrent911 so if its the album of the century why dont u support the artist and buy it for $8 u cheap fuck

  • trayday

  • TOrrent911

    ummm cuz the WHOLE world doesnt have credit cards and itunes...i mean can u think for ur self its so cool to keep sayin that , leaks are done mostly by themselves cuz not everyone has itunes , and music is art, meant to be shard

    Support Artists You enjoy By Buying Their Product!

    Everyone loves to complain how theres so much garbage out there, but then yall mothefuckers find some shit you actually really like and for some reason your simpleton minds dont let you realize your defeating your own interests and enjoyment.

    SUPPORT ARTISTS YOU LIKE OR ALL YOU WILL GET IS INDUSTRY BACKED BULLSHIT.

  • JIMMYJAM

    EITHER THAT OR THE ARTISTS YOU LIKE NOW, WILL TURN INTO WHAT YOU HATE BECAUSE ITS THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP MAKING MUSIC AND BE ABLE TO EAT!

  • jhicksbo

    Man I love the new album. Real nice listen. But I think someone earlier said it, the word CLASSIC gets used way too much. Enjoy the album, but let it age...we'll know if it is truly a CLASSIC album if people are still bumping it, bringing it up or being used as inspiration/blueprint for another artist's album.

    I mean Michael Jackson's Off The Wall & Thriller didn't get 5 stars from most "reviewers" til they looked at it in retrospect. So enjoy the album but damn ease up off the word "CLASSIC"

  • thatrealshit

    @JustaFanofMusic
    The dudes #5 overall on itunes and #2 on the hip hop charts, i think he just realized he doesnt have to go commercial...whos hatin? u sound like a jealous bitch cuz kendrick just dropped a better album than sean, grow up

  • Chipz

    all I know is Kendrick's buzz has officially over taken J cole's....this kid is hands down the biggest thing on the underground...Bigger than Blu and Cole...We'll see what is what once NO YORK drops/Cole's debut, but for now, Kendrick got the crown....

  • thatrealshit

    WOW, Lamar KEEP tellin the world to stop being so fucking idiotic about some celebrity gossip or false mainstream media and educate yourself and do something about it when the government is tryin to eliminate us (reduce population). LISTEN TO THE LYRICS & NOT THE BEAT.

  • CAKE

    Damn, this shit is tight. The production is smoother than ever. His past two projects were amazing and I think this trumps both of them.

    Lyrics are deeper, beats are nicer, the features are dope..this album is phenomenal!!! Definitely an album of the year candidate along with KRIT and eLZhi in my opinion.

  • TDE winning

    i hope this shows kendrick that he doesn't have to go "commercial" in order to sell record. #4 on all of itunes!

  • JustAFanOfMusic

    @thatrealshit: No, I have both Big Sean and Kendrick in my iPod... you just come off as one of the usual Kdot dick-riders, you guys are getting worse than the J.Cole ones.

    Everyone goes commercial... EVERYONE. Name one rapper that hasn't gone commercial and I'll bet that nigga isn't selling big numbers. That's how the world works.

    No, it wasn't a shot... listen to it again, good sir.

    Great album, yes it is classic if you compare it to his peers albums that have been released in the last year or 2. Album is a great listen and the beats are hella smooth. Lamar and Dom are the best in the west right now. Props to both of them. Keep doing your thing.

  • Ying

    k i don't care if its kendrick lamar or kanye west or anybody. why the fuck would i buy music when i can get it for free. fuck "supporting the artist" bullsht, they make enough money

  • efalk

    @richard hernandez - u just mad cuz u got some shitty as blog that no one checks out. ur also a jew motherfucker for not having $8 to spend on dope music

  • efalk

    @ying its $8 u cheap motherfucker. if u dont have $8 to spend u might as well fill up ur bathtub nd drop in a toaster

  • ShuxNchuck

    This is a very very good Album. Rigamortis put Tears in my eyes...this makes me proud to be a Hip Hop Head. Play this to any Stuck Up Rap haters...its gona go over their head.

  • Pauly Dee

    @Ying

    I would understand if you're poor and you don't have the money to support them, but to say that tells me that you're just cheap. Music is their profession, so they shouldn't they get paid? That's like you working at your job but your boss doesn't give you the money because he feels your "too successful".

  • JustAFanOfMusic

    @efolk: You crying ain't gonna make a nigga buy shit, br0...

    If you were smart, you'd know there's a set number of buyers & pirates before a product ever hits e-shelves. If someone has it in their minds that they will purchase the album, then they will buy it even if there is a free download dangling right in front of them. Pirates will always be cheap and save their money for better things that they can't get for free... that's just their thought process.

    Morals... it all comes down to morals.

  • marty mcfly

    @Ying you support a artist because if you dont nobody will no they exist. Everybody knows who Ross and Drake is but not too many people know who Kendrick is. Without the numbers hes gonna stay underground and stay under that glass ceiling under peoples radar. Most of the rappers people praise on sites like this , nobody in the streets have ever heard of cause they dont follow hip hop unless it comes on the radio or on TV.

  • Train

    Hopefully they make the physical copies available again, I'd definitely cop one.

    @Billy I dont even call it going commercial , I call it being a good artist. Why should a artists make a whole album hardcore? Thats like trying to talk to a girl all hard while trying to get her number. Thats like cooking a meal with all meat and no other sides. People never said BIG sold out cause he made Big Poppa and One More Chance. Its called being a dope artist cause a album with nothing but one kind of music on it is wack.

  • bones

    @ efalk hell yeah!

  • JustAFanOfMusic

    @marty mcfly: And I agree... but all these 'real' hip-hop heads will claim a d00d sold out the minute they make something for casual fans. These morons will ride a nigga's dick to the grave when he's underground, but as soon as that same nigga's made it... they write 'em off. The hilarity in it all is that they are the people that helped that nigga make it there.

    The shit is truly an never-ending process... just switch artists, rinse & repeat. You guys are a predictable mess. Watch Cole World drop in September and it has commercial hits. Idiots STH and cling to the next underground star for salvation. Shit is hilarious.

  • efalk

    @ richard hernandez please rewrite ur comment in english and then ill read it

  • marty mcfly

    @ JustAFanOfMusic COSIGN , this is how I look at it. When a artists has earned his stripes in the underground and then he makes a song that goes mainstream , I look at it as a victory. I dont look at it as a sold out thing because if the song that goes mainstream is actually good then theres nothing to be mad about. When Dilated Peoples had Just To Get By featuring Kanye it blew up but they didnt just leave behind their original sound.

  • marty mcfly

    Correction- When Dilated Peoples made THIS WAY...

  • JustAFanOfMusic

    @DG: It's not about being able to afford the shit. It's a matter of principles. Take you and I for instance, you went all the way out of your way to help support Kendrick, even with the pirates parading links for a free download... even now, you stick around to stop people from getting the album illegally.

    Now myself, I didn't purchase the album... nor do I plan to. I downloaded it for free just like I do to bigger figure heads. It's not a matter of money, I know I have the money to buy his album... it's just that I don't want to buy it and instead save that money for better things; like gas or just keeping in the bank and let it accumulate more wealth.

    Like I said earlier... it's about morals & principles. And I applaud you for helping Kendrick, sir... but not everyone will follow your fine example.

  • gpt20

    wayyyyy better than od

  • MAGA D

    good look on the link Richard lmao. yo. not everybody here has credit cards, some people like myself prefer to spend cash vs using fuckin credit and debit cards. know what I'm not broke but have a bad credit score because my parents bought shit with a card via my name for years & went bankrupt off it. so that's why I don't use a card... it'd be expensive than a bitch to get a card now...
    so sorry k dot ill buy yo album when it hits stores... You middle class suburbia ass niggas need ta keep the "you s
    don't have eight dollars!? you failure" talk to yourselves. k dot good look with the music though.

  • marty mcfly

    If you didnt buy the album then what you can do is just go put somebody up on Kendricks music that never heard of him before. Then you did your part as a real fan of his.

  • JustAFanOfMusic

    @marty mcfly: Of course, I always try to put underground talent on people's radar. I make sure to play my part some how... whenever I go out, I bump commercially unknown talent. I'd like to think my cousin & I played a bit part in popularizing Lil Boosie down here back in 03-04.

    No matter where I go... I try to make sure I get people asking me, "Who's the nice guy you bumpin'?" Shit like that helps make me feel like less of a douche... lol

Kendrick goes in harder then i've ever herd and the production's 100% , even the sketchy ones ie Chapter 10 etc. EVerything goes together well. This IS a classic. Absolutely amazing, and im a harsh critic. HIIIPOWER over all the retards on this site

    #Section.80.

  • Dilli

    Lol i get this album.

    it seems like he's talking about life in the 80's or something. from different perspectives. tammy, keisha, how the lived their lives in the 80's. and then "Ronald Regan Era is from the perspectives of the grown ups looking at how the kids are growing up. saying that this generation will be tougher than the last. he's also saying, how he thinks of life. he can't be what others are because he can't put himself in their shoes. all he knows how to do is live his own life, asnd find out his own answers. thats why he takes life by the moment seen by the lyrics "I'm in the dead fucking center looking around"

    any way, I can go on forever. basically what i want to say is stfu and listen to the album. don't place it into a category it's not just because of mass opinion assholes.

    we put up songs as THEY send them to us. then we put a link to BUY his ALBUM as it's not a FREE project. how hard is that to understand?

  • HoesOnMyDickCuzILookLikeKenMasters

    Kendrick's flow has always sounded so familiar to me but I could never place my finger on it...I think I got it now. Go back and listen to that old Big L and Jay-Z radio freestyle. K-Dot's flow is really similar to Jay's flow on that joint. IMO anyway....side note: 'Poe Man's Dream' is def part of the Soundtrack to my life. Call me a stan if that's ur thing. I could give two fucks.

  • RSX

    Some great beats, definite bangers like Spiteful Chant and No MakeUp..

    My main issue is that it's very BLACK POWER, afrocentric, (HiiiPower, Ronald Reagan Era) and as a white guy, some of the songs don't resonate with me, and I would disagree with those that are talking about how this is a better album than Finally Famous, Underground > Mainstream, etc. The main thing that mainstream artists have on an artist like Kendrick, is that their music is resonant with people from all walks of life. Success and Fame are topics that everyone can relate to. The poor aspire to it, the rich are living it.

    That said, I'll be trying to pull a Hol'Up on my next cross-country flight..

  • Maga D

    @m.e. : It wouldn't, but why would I get a plastic card from the bank when I could get my money from the bank. I just don't see the point to the shit. I'll get mine without any cards. I just threw it in there because I was talking about cards in general.

  • izzzzzz

    alright.... first off ive seen kendrick twice, in brooklyn and boston.. by far the best live show ive ever seen and i just saw j. cole, weezy and eminem at bonnaroo, no rapper is more intense, goes harder and makes a deeper connection with everyone in the audience than kendrick. hes the best.

    as for section 80.. this is an absolute masterpiece, if it was an instrumental album it would be a masterpiece, the TDE production team is on point from start to finish, i love the KING sample on chapter 6, the spiteful chant is the most bangin song ive heard since look out for detox, the rigamortus beat is absolutely perfect for kendrick to just tear the guts out of. the beats are incredible, and i havent even touched on the real reason this album absolutely NEEEDS to be heard by every fan of hip hop in the world. KENDRICK LAMARS RAPPING. for real, this man is the best rapper i have ever heard in my life, alive or dead... if you disagree, you're entitled to your opinion but i have never heard anyone with the total package like kendrick. he has the largest diversity of flows, subject matter and rhyme patterns out of anyone rapping right now by far, he goes from keishas song, one of the realest songs ive ever heard, on some straight up 2pac shit to rigamortus. keishas song brought a tear to my eye the first time i heard it, real talk, he captures the emotion of the story hes trying to tell perfectly and explains it more in depth than i could ever dream of. 'so she hit the back seat, rosa parks never a factor when she makin ends meet' the bars on this cd are more meaningful and can be interpreted in so many different ways. and then you hear rigamortus, a technical clinic of rapping ability where he GOES THE FUCK IIIINNNNNNNNNNNN from start to finish. Just those two songs show you how versatile he is and those are only 2 motherfuckin songs!!!! album of the year, maybe album of the eternity thus far, LONG LIVE KING KENDRICK. thank you for this wonderful music!!!!!

  • HiiiP

    word to izzzzzz, keishas song is the truth.
    That one song will get ppl hooked into his music.
    If the had a music video for that shit it woild be a game over.

    SECTION 80 IS AT #5 on ITUNES TOP ALBUMS. #2 on ITUNES HIP HOP/RAP ALBUMS! LETS GET TO NUMBER 1!

  • SUPERSLIM64

    Returnof4eva and Section.80>>>>>>>>>>

    projects of the year. Glad to see cats really putting work into their music lately.

    and I'm sorry if you're white and can't relate to the "black power" themes or whatever (boo-hoo) lol..but LOL at the person who said Finally Famous is a better album..right, so fame and success relates to everyone? My life isn't about fame and money and materials, so no, FInally Famous is trash to me. Apparently thats all Big Sean has to offer.

  • izzzzzz

    and cosign superslim64... smh @ RSX.. success and fame are probably the two topics that THE SMALLEST amount of people can relate to, it is idiotic to think that that all poor people aspire to be famous, everyone just wants a good life and happiness, section 80 is about the struggle to achieve those things and the obstacles that get in the way. thats music real people can relate to, not finally famous.. fuck outta here

  • blaah

    @mdz

    It was #1 hip-hop album and #3 overall on iTunes yesterday sir..

  • RSX

    "Good Life and Happiness" are success, you simpleminded fucks. No, Section.80 is about the struggle of black people, and I can't put my monetary support behind an artist that marginalizes people, which is why I bootlegged this album. Finally Famous is a start to finish album, the only songs on S80 that can compare to Don't Tell Me You Love Me (probably the realest song released so far in 2011) is No MakeUp.

    2 songs from Seandon's catalog (Desire Want & Need; Million Dollars) dead anything by KDot. Section.80 is cool for the type of people that harp upon the plight caused by institutional racism and the government. The types that aren't going to anything with their lives, because they hide behind albums like this, and try to organize protests and riots instead of beating the system from the inside, actually getting a college education and providing for a family, achieving a "Good Life and Happiness" like you said. H.RapBrown ass niggas smh.....

  • Th3rd ear

    @izzz 2 words...Lupe Fiasco...hes the most versatile MC and is lyrically better than Kendrick..he can do the same thing Kendrick did on Rigamortis except every line will be a metaphor/quadruple entendre..Kendrick can match his MC skills but not his lyrical skills..the 3 best MCs when it comes to lyrical + MC (technical) skills combo are Lupe, Kendrick, and Jay Electronica...and you seriously need to pick up a copy of Illmatic too b4 u say this is the greatest album ever lol

  • RSX

    ^^and Lupe appeals to a much broader range of people. He's probably at the top of the list of MCs that have balanced underground and mainstream appeal. Kick, Push is a hip-hop classic.

  • Th3rd ear

    @RSX Kendrick is a better overall artist and MC..Kendrick can do everything Sean does (with his simple rhyme schemes and punchlines about his dick smh) Sean cant do everything Kendrick can do

  • izzzzzz

    best hip hop album ever might have been a bit of an exaggeration, im just hyped for my man kendrick, you cant blame me for getting a lil too excited... illmatic is definitely better, so is college dropout, the black album and a handful of other classics, i'll admit that, this shit is definitely the album of the year so far though

    @RSX... 1. you cant say niggas, 2. desire want and need and million dollars are good tracks, sean is dope, finally famous is dope, but when it comes to RAPPING, sean is nowhere near the same league as kendrick, listen to monster freestyle, listen to look out for detox.. you dont have to support him, i will, but im not gonna give my money to a dude who talks about his dick on every single song. and i find it real funny that your making this into a black/white arguement when the very first song is fuck your ethnicity, it doesnt matter what color you are when your listening to music you dumb fuck.

    and i'll agree that lupe at his BEST is untouchable, but lasers is an absolute abomination that makes me want to projectile vomit when i think about it

  • RSX

    Yea, the first song is Fuck Your Ethnicity, making the last 15 tracks hypocritical...

    Why are we even arguing this when Gilbere Forte and Emilio Rojas could rap circles around anyone mentioned in this thread?

  • bwood

    @RSX i think what kendrick is trying to do is get you to understand what goes on even if you can't relate..not every person is gonna relate to the music but u can still understand where hes coming from.. big sean is one of my favorites because i think hes fun to listen to..i like finally famous but its not really something that makes me think section.80..FFV3 was better to me but u could tell big sean was going even more mainstrem for FF..

    and everybody talking about lupe..i agree..but i could never really get into lasers like i got into to food & liquor and the cool..its good dont get me wrong it was just different from what i was expecting..i just like how section.80 is the a little different but doesnt go too far from what we are used to hearing from kendrick

  • Empire

    Just stop talking to @RSX, the ignorance is getting overwhelming. Anybody that's willing to rank Finally Famous over Section.80 is obviously functionally retarded, and that's coming from a white dude. That kid clearly didn't understand the album anyway, so let him go listen to trash.

  • http://theerawmeat.blogspot.com ERAW

    All this talk about buying the album is irrelevant, especially when the majority of the album sales go to the record company and rappers admittedly get the majority of their money from shows. Personally Id rather DL the album, like it, and spend $20-$50 when the artist comes to my city and see a live show

    BTW the way the album is AMAZING and is on constant rotation. Big K.R.I.T. still gets my vote for album of the year but this comes in a very close second.

  • RSX

    "Anybody that’s willing to rank Finally Famous over Section.80 is obviously functionally retarded"
    Or obviously someone with a differing opinion on what makes a song or an album good...jeez it's not like I'm trying to argue Kreayshawn over Kendrick...

    Top 5 Albums/Tapes this year so far (no order):
    Smmertime Sunshne Nghtfall - Gilbere Forte x Sean Rose
    KRIT - R4EVA
    Emilio Rojas - Life Without Shame (Untagged version)
    Gerald Walker - On Your Side
    Weeknd - House of Balloons

    KDot touches none of those...

  • http://theerawmeat.blogspot.com ERAW

    AND LMAO @ dude comparing FF to Section.80. Im a Big Sean fan and FF is fun to listen to but hes doing nothing but talking about fucking hoes and how much money he has. S80 is talking about the ills of society, something that most can relate to. Everybody knows a chick from way back that is now participating in Hoeish activities (Keishas song) Poor people in general can relate to the fact that they system is built to keep the poor, poor and make the rich richer (HiiIPower and Poor Mans Dream). EVERYBODY knows a chick thats insecure about her looks even though she has absolutely no reason to (No Make-up). So thats why Fuck You Ethnicity was NOT contradictory, because its not about race at all. Its about the poor and downtrodden conquering their own demons and rising up and doing something about being oppressed.

    If you missed that then you need your ears examined.

  • @RSX

    ^the only 2 on your list that even come close are R4 and House of Balloons. That Smmertime shit? That was a joke, right?

  • RSX

    uhh...Raw, Money Deux, All For You, pretty much every track except maybe the Outro were better than anything on Section80. Gilbere Forte could rap circles around KDot

  • kool

    so why isnt sex with society on here

  • Rafae Sheikh

    @kool Didn't make the cut
