DA MAN - - 360+ Columns - DAmn. Ken­drick La­mar

Ken­drick La­mar shows his ver­sa­til­ity in his lat­est al­bum “DAMN.”

“Damn” sums it up just right. Ken­drick La­mar has—some­how— bril­liantly cre­ated an­other al­bum that is as rhyth­mi­cally, aes­thet­i­cally and lyri­cally ex­quis­ite as his pre­vi­ous al­bums. Now, “DAMN.” is still packed with the singer’s anx­i­eties, fear and dif­fi­cul­ties. But in this al­bum, the tracks don’t nec­es­sar­ily fol­low a central theme. Like its lead sin­gle “HUM­BLE” that calls on other hip-hop artists to be, well, hum­ble, or “DNA.” where La­mar adopts mul­ti­ple view­points in ex­plor­ing his her­itage and cul­ture. It looks like La­mar has ditched the norms of mak­ing an al­bum and just freely rapped. And there’s noth­ing wrong with that. As a mat­ter of fact, it just fur­ther shows his di­ver­sity, cre­ativ­ity and, most of all, it shows what Ken­drick La­mar is all about.
