The Up-Turn

I don’t approve of everything Kendrick Lamar does (for example, rapping over a Jet Age of Tomorrow song and giving absolutely no credit to them), but I can’t deny that he has some amazing technical skill as a rapper.  Lamar first caught my eye with “Look Out For Detox” in which he tears Childish Gambino’s “You Know Me” instrumental to microscopic pieces.  If there were one song on Lamar’s recent album Section.80 that I would say best showcases this skill it would be “Rigamortis”.  Lamar raps his ass off to the point that the pitch of his voice has even risen by the end of the song due to a lack of breathing.  I’m still not the biggest Kendrick Lamar fan, but this is definitely impressive.
