So, since @The Flash has spoken so highly of it, I not only tried out Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, but I actually listened to it about five times by now, so as to give it a proper chance. And - surprise, surprise - I really like it. I could live without stuff like For Free? (Interlude) myself, but in general it was a very satisfying experience that has only grown upon me during the repeated listens. I don't really even mind that he's so heavy with his subjects. However - and I might have already said this - just as with Outkast, I have a hard time accepting this as "hip hop". That is, both this album and the Antlanta duo are not something I would instantly recommend to a hip hop fan and I am often in the mood for these even if I'm not in the mood for hip hop in general (which, honestly, I'm not that often). I don't know what I want to say with this, but thanks for the recommendation!
