Really surprised there wasn't a thread already up about him, seriously one of the best rappers around right now. In my mind Section. 80 has been the best hip-hop album dropped this year, I can't even pick a track from it which I don't find dope. Dude's got flow, lyrical content worth something, and just passion for hip-hop.

Since YouTube videos are massive on the site now I'll just link to some:

HiiiPower
F**k Your Ethnicity
Keisha's Song (Her Pain)

Very surprised that he hasn't been blessed with a thread yet.

I first heard him on the leaked track with J. Cole - Temptation and began following him. Since then I haven't heard a ton (Jaffers, I'm copping Section 80 as soon as I can), but I was reminded of his immense potential with his guest verse on "City" off of Game's RED Album.

Dude is going places, one of the realest in the game atm.

He's already been given the title of the new king of the West Coast by Game, Snoop & Dr. Dre. Crazy talented rapper, can't wait for him to come out with more and more.

I feel horrible for not responding to this thread immediately. This dude is one of my favorite artists out right now. Section 80 is easily album of the year so far, and one of the best I've heard in a very long time.

But does anyone know a website or a store where I can get the physical copy? I've checked in at every local music store and no one seems to have it.

I think Section.80 might've only had a digital release. Not 100% sure, but I think so. Sorry man.

It made me sick, due to overlistening. Like I had to give it a month long break due to rocking it every morning.

That's an endorsment of some sort.

iTunes purchase incidently, was a princely £5.99 so I took the gamble at Judas' word. Worked out well.

I've been wondering the same thing. It's been exactly a year since Kendrick released the preview video for it and we've been stuck with that video with that annyoing ass girl going "heeeyyyy!!!" every five seconds in the background. -_-

I'm still waiting for Cole and Kendrick to announce more details about the album. A single, a confirmation, SOMETHING.

Man H.O.C is boss, this guy stays with that nice lyrical brilliance as Lost Cause put it.
Overly Dedicated has some great tracks.
H.O.C
Ronald Reagen Era

Can't wait for some of those tracks that Dre will be working on.

Hope you did and that it was dope.
Top Dawg signed to Interscope for distribution, Kendrick specifically, is on Aftermath.

Which is a *bleep*ing shame because Aftermath is a joke.

Kendrick can't become the next King Tee, Bishop Lamont, Joell Ortiz, Rakim, Raekwon, Last Emperor, Eve, Hittman, RBX etc: jesus what a failure rate.
