The dopest album, now on CD.
Unless you’ve actually been living under a rock, you know by now that Kendrick dropped To Pimp A Butterfly just a little earlier than expected. If you have been living under a rock, now would be a very good time to check out Spit Talking’s review of Kendrick’s mad dope album. So anyways, the album is now available on CD, and if you don’t feel like dropping $15 on some mp3s (even though the album’s straight up worth it, trust me), why not drop $14 on a CD?
This album is straight fire, and it’s probably one of the dopest albums you’ve heard in a while. If you haven’t heard it yet, well then it’s one of the dopest albums you’ve never heard. It earned Spit Talking’s first ever 5/5 (and we don’t plan on giving many more of those out), so you know it’s good. Shit’s innovative from the beginning to the end, but never makes a misstep. It jumps between a lot of genres, and most of the time pulls more from Jazz than it does from Hip Hop. In the review, I say that To Pimp A Butterfly is Kendrick Lamar’s Bitches Brew, so you gotta at very least check out the sound.
So Kendrick’s album is getting mostly great reviews (aside from the vocal minority on twitter calling it garbo) and is selling damn well. It was number 1 on the iTunes charts before it had even dropped, but it didn’t quite hit platinum in like 3 days, as some folks on twitter thought it might. It also didn’t match If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’s half a million mark either, so Drake beat Kendrick there. I personally think this is ridiculous, and I think only some of it had to do with Drake dropping his album out of nowhere. Kendrick’s was kind of an expected surprise, and people knew it was coming and had already heard some of the tracks, so I guess those folks that are scared of change didn’t wanna go for Kendrick’s album.
So yeah, buy the CD.
Anyways, if you don’t have the mp3s yet or you do have the mp3s but you want that shit for the car or to give out as gifts, cop the To Pimp A Butterfly CD. It’s only 14 bucks on Amazon, which is actually a dollar less than it is on iTunes and you get to show off your taste with the album artwork in your house. Support Kendrick and dope hip hop.
