    I remember you was conflicted, misusing your influence. Sometimes i did the same....

    I haven't listened to hip-hop seriously since the 1990s, but this guy may draw me back.

    i cant get over the fact that one of the most popular and revered albums of the year is socially aware lyrically, it includes spoken word over free jazz, a live version including an argument with the crowd and one of the most strange and profound closing tracks in years. must be so boring to be one of those "duuuh good music is dead " kids

    the lyrics and overall tone of the last 5 songs including the epic outro flow like a marvel, this album deserves all the praise

    Critics want to mention that they miss when Hip Hop was rapping, motherfucker, if you did then Killer Mike'd be platinum.

    To Pimp a Butterfly is really fantastic but is it wrong that I like GKMC better?

    Sorry, but few albums in hip hop history can touch TPAB. Just be glad you got to watch it happen in front of your eyes and cherish it. This is something special hip hop fans will remember, like old heads debating on 90s classics today, we'll talk about TPAB 10-20 years from now.
