Imagine if Kendrick died after TPAB?
Imagine if Kendrick died after TPAB?
This contributes nothing to my thread....
He was probably hoping for that
In Mortal Man he was talking to Tupac about becoming a leader and martyr for black people
I hate niqqers
I keep having this dream where Kendrick releases a new album. Its not NATION. and no, its not a follow-up to DAMN. Its a completely separate album, called DIVINE AUTHORITY, and is Kendrick's 6th and final album. It has 8 tracks, but none of them are shorter than 7 minutes. The tracks feature hard-hitting breakbeats, in fact the whole album is not even hip-hop but straight-up big beat that sounds similar to The Prodigy's The Fat of the Land, and the track "Diesel Power" in particular, except the album has tons of distortion and Kendrick's rapping is much more aggressive, making it more similar to Dalek and Techno Animal's track "Hell". And speaking of Dalek, he appears as a feature on the second track, the main single. Other features include Vatican Shadow, Dedekind Cut, Lil Uzi Vert, and the last track is an industrial jazzfunk cacophony composed by Kamasi Washington, and ends with a piano ballad featuring Frank Ocean that evolves into the beat from the beginning of the first track, making the ending a prelude to the first track of the album, thus making the whole album a circle of sorts, similar to J Dilla's Donuts. The lyrics have tons of calls for black superiority and digs against the alt-right, with lyrics like "Yo red pill is a lie/ constructed by the Zion's eye/ Yo idol slayed the innocent jews/ so true manipulators could rule them sacred views/ now you too fall prey to their sinister lies/ ay, I say hi to yall inner demise". The cover has Kendrick, naked and covered in tatoos and looking like a tribal shaman similar to the black guy in The Prodigy video for "Breathe", standing in front of a concrete wall with graffiti saying "DIVINE AUTHORITY".
I'll give you something pal
your garbage thread contributes nothing to the board
black gangster that got shot by other black gangsters
a martyr for black people
Top fucking kek
The album is met with a mixed reception, its panned by Pitchfork, and is a commercial failure. One week after the album's release Kendrick dies in a mysterious car crash. The album is proven so controversial that all of hip-hop completely disappears from the mainstream's view, and all the radios and televisions start playing post-grunge revival instead.
6 months after the album's release, Trump is assassinated and the United States fall into a new Civil War. The war culminates with a mass massacre directed against the South, and ends with the North reuniting the US as a Communist Socialist Federation, ruled by a pawn of the CPR. Kendrick is hailed as an artistic and poetic genius, similar to Mayakovski in the Soviet Union, and DIVINE AUTHORITY is hailed as his creative magnum opus.
Just thought I'd share.
You didn't really ask a question. You asked me to imagine Kendrick dying, so I did
You're not funny. I hope painful death comes your way.
You know what's funny? People have been talking about the message of this album, about it being "big words" with "no meaning", yet not a single one of you dense fuckers has even been able to grasp what it's really about.
Kendrick is dealing with different forces of racism and is looking for a way to cope.
His mother straight up tells him to stop acting like a victim, it'll never get him anywhere. Kendrick is taking a hit at black people, maybe even more direct at black people in social media, constantly playing the victim card. He has actually been attacked by a few black celebrities, including Azelia Banks, for that.
He is also implying that, additionally to systematic, structural racism, there is another form of racism in America. He goes one step farther and holds up a mirror for his black people:
If you behave like a gangbanger, if you live like a thug, if you talk like a moron and generally behave ignorant, then you are perpetuating racial stereotypes. A lot of black people, famous black people that the youngsters look up to, act like that. He's adressing the faults of the black community.
There is an essay by Frantz Fanon titled Black Skin, White Masks. Not like anyone here would have read that, but if you had maybe you would understand where Kendrick is coming from.
There is a mental image of 'the nigga from the projects' and instead of offering a counterimage, media, like BET for example, just fixate that image even more. Kendrick has gotten so much shit for saying exactly that, saying that black people are part of the reason why racism still exists today. It's a bold message, in the end this album is not about a religious epiphany or about a black uprising, it's about respecting each other and acting fucking sane. Those are even the last words, I have no idea how anyone could miss that.
dude you gotta go back, please
Copy pasta contribues nothing of value.
just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it's not genuine
you're trying really hard to fit in on Sup Forums
How about come up with something original instead?
gcmc is better
Frantz Fanon was one of the most based people to ever live. The wretched of the earth is really good
