Its refreshing to hear a man talk about a woman who’s doing her thing and it's not just because she got a car, she got a house and all that other ish. Also good to hear him acknowledge that when a woman who’s about her business wants a dude, it’s pretty much a big deal. Humility is not exactly a rapper’s forte, but Kendrick’s managed to do it without sounding like a total wimp. The second song is on some spoken word styles but the beat that Kendrick is rap-talking over is perfection for it. As Kendrick’s tells it, he’s just a kid from Compton who wants to rap but he’s got a lot of soul. We hear ya, keep ‘em coming. -Judnick Mayard (via Nahright)
