Kendrick Lamar's most recent record's most "shareable content."
Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly seems to be the new standard bearer for provocative Hip Hop music and its titillating subtext. Found in the underbelly of the Compton bred MC’s verses and choruses are messages varying from infuriating to inspirational - from seductive to scornful.
TPAB tracks of dissimilar sound all share one commonality. Lamar’s word wizardry has an ability to worm his messages way into the psyche of the listener, and in turn, creating catchy lines that can get stuck in your head all day.
What better way to exercise these lyrical demons that haunt us by re-appropriating them… into Facebook statuses (or twitter, or even Instagram, depending on your social platform of choice).
Here are lyrics from To Pimp a Butterfly that make the perfect social media posts.
