    Absolutely love this song, and Section.80 as a whole! It's embarrassing to admit, but like a lot of white people, Kendrick was teen me's gateway into seeing hip hop as more than the "guns/money/drugs/women" stereotype it's so commonly painted as.

    While we're at it, I thought this article did a good job at covering Kendrick's meteoric rise over the past decade. Good read if you're curious to learn more about his history.

    I've always had a ton of respect for Kendrick. He's always had a refreshingly mature perspective in his music, on top of the musical talent. To Pimp a Butterfly is still probably one of my all time favorite albums because of its depth, but that's probably also because it was the first Kenny album I heard.

    I find it interesting that he seems to avoid the spotlight in a lot of ways. For instance, nearly any song he's featured one will have a solid but short verse, so that he doesn't steal anyone's moment.
