Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly” Review

Sitting and listening to  Joe Budden podcast, he talks  about Kendrick Lamar’s latest project “To Pimp A Butterfly”. Joe  inspired me to write my review and share my thoughts. In my honest opinion this inspirational album is not  just a regular album you put in your car and turn up.

Not too offend anybody with my fucked up thoughts, I was not a fan of this album first listen. I was so caught up in the beats, I blocked out dope lyrical content. ONce you get past the his jazzy, hip hop/funk vibe, you begin to understand this album’s true purpose. After listening to the album, 5-15 times, the art grew on me. I begin to see his vision and the knowledge Kendrick is trying to show his fans.

In my eyes this album is the perfect vibe out music. This album would help you keep a just over minimum wage job and prevent you from quitting. Would stop you from giving your supervisor that “Fuck You Bob, I can’t work Saturday night” speech. Kendrick is using his talents to enlighten others, unlike most tracks these days. These five tracks below were my stand out records from this project.

  1. Blacker The Berry
  2. Mortal Man
    3.These Walls
  3. Institutionalized but just the first 103 seconds lol
    5.You Ain’t Gotta Lie

I give this a 4 star.What are your thoughts? Let’s talk below

Rapper Lil Wayne Writing A Book, Mentions Drake Slept With His Girl

Hide you girlfriends, Hide your wives cause Drake is on the loose. The Canadian rapper has a reputation for snatching up other people significant others, this time Wayne fell victim. Allegedly the YMCB rapper is writing a book and mentioned the incident.

TMZ spill the tea;
Wayne claims while he was serving time at Rikers Island for gun possession, Drake visited him and glibly confessed, saying, “Yeah, it’s true. Don’t f*** with her like that cause I did f*** her.”

Wayne writes, “This is the type of s*** that a man never wants to find out when he’s locked up. Or, maybe so, cause only God knows what I would have done if I wasn’t locked up right now.”

Wayne admits in the proposal he and his GF argued a lot, and that may be why Drake said, “Don’t f*** with her like that.” As for the timeline, Wayne says the woman told him she had sex with Drake the day before they met.
Wayne goes on, “I woke up feeling f***** up about the f***** up day that I had … finding out that she f***** Drake was the absolute worst thing I could’ve ever found out.”

And he says, “As a man, honestly, that s*** hurt … and not because it was Drake, it could have been any man. It would’ve hurt the same.”
Wayne then goes on and says he was so depressed he didn’t come out of his cell for days.

We’re told there’s intense interest among publishers. We’ll definitely read it.

Top 10 Highlights Of #Empire Season Finale

The season finale of Empire was twice as much the drama, the secrets, the lies, and more with two hours back to back. My predictions were on point Andre had a “Come to Jesus” moment, Alliances were created, fights were drama filled, murders, gift giving, confession and the list goes on and on.

Deadline reports the view numbers;

For the 10th week in a row since its January 7 debut, Fox’s Empire (6.4/20) hit a brand new viewership high of 16.5 million. That’s up 11% from the 14.90 million that the Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Ilene Chaiken, Francie Calfo and Brian Glazer EP’d series drew on March 11. Empire also had another new record among adults 18-49 with a 10% rise over last week’s 5.8/17, which was tied with the drama’s March 4 show for the previous all time high. The 8 – 10 PM finale was also up an amazing 68% jump over the 18-49 rating of its debut and rose 67% over the 9.90 million who tuned in for that first show of the 12-episode season.

Since the season finale was two hours long, check out my top 10 highlights below.

Drake Assaulted In Dubai Nightclub

Drake is living life in Dubai and running amok. While in a nightclub Drake was shoved in the back of his head.Drake felt some type of way, but before he could handle the situation security stepped in handled the guy.

TMZ reports;

Drake was manhandled at a club in Dubai, which triggered a melee that put the aggressor where he belongs … on the ground.

Drake and his crew were at Movida nightclub Saturday night, along with a huge crowd … Dubai does it big. Watch the video closely … you’ll see the guy grab the back of Drake’s head and shove it down.

Drake is clearly pissed off, and gives the guy a death stare. But security jumps in and gets the job done STAT.

BTW, Drake was in the country as a guest of the royal family. It’s unclear if members of the f.amily were on hand when Drake was assaulted

Karrueche Tran Kicked Iyanla Vanzant Out Of Her House

Video has surfaced that Karrueche Tran is the next on the couch with Iyanla Vanzant for  Iyanla: Fix My Life. Despite the promo, allegedly the actual interview didn’t go too smooth. Reportedly,  Iyanla and her crew were kicked  out of Karrueche’s home because they were asking too many questions regarding Chris Brown.

TMZ spills the tea;

We’re told Tran sat down at her house with Iyanla Vanzant for the interview. Tran says producers promised it would be “positive.”

Things went south when Tran was asked about her relationship with Brown. Vanzant asked if she slept with Chris from the get-go because he was a superstar. When she explained they didn’t sleep together until months after they met, she claims the interviewer didn’t believe her and kept pressing.

Vanzant also grilled Karrueche about her decision to date Chris in the wake of beating Rihanna. She responded that everyone deserved a second chance. The interviewer then challenged Karrueche, saying Chris had cheated on her but she still took him back.

At that point … Karrueche’s manager kicked Vanzant and the OWN crew out of her house.
