Kendrick Lamar is one of the most widely admired performers in popular music today. His last collection, To Pimp A Butterfly, was named album of the year by many publications including Billboard and Rolling Stone. His new album, titled DAMN., debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart, and was the best-selling debut of the year thus far. Rock critic Ken Tucker says DAMN. extends Lamar’s range and the power of his storytelling.

“In a recent interview, Lamar said that while his previous album, To Pimp A Butterfly, was about changing the world, the implied message of DAMN. is, “I can’t change the world unless I change myself.” Listening to Kendrick Lamar tussle with his ideas about how to effect that change in himself can make you think about your own life, and perhaps the things we can change.”

Sam estava em casa, os olhos fixos no computador quando levou lentamente a mão aos cabelos castanhos e balançou a mesma lentamente. Ela não havia tomado os remédios, não tinha tido tempo e não queria sair da frente do monitor, a menina ouviu um barulho atrás de si e virou vendo Kendrick - Ken… que surpresa, não sabia que você viria. - diz sorrindo para ele, antes de mais uma vez levar as mãos a cabeça - Ken… por favor, abra a gaveta da minha cômoda, tem meus remédios lá. Pode me dá-los? - pediu se encolhendo na cadeira, tentando ignorar as vozes que começava a ouvir.

Ken Tucker reviews Kendrick Lamar’s new album To Pimp A Butterfly:

“To Pimp A Butterfly is an album to spend time with, to revel in its imaginatively combined array of influences. Kendrick Lamar works here with a number of notable musicians, including the jazz pianist Robert Glasper, and producers, most crucially Thundercat. Lamar conveys the pleasures and difficulties of his life and many other lives, creating in the process a rich world of roiling emotions and sharp-witted ideas.”

PHOENIX, AZ - Ken Kendrick, owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks as well as the coveted T206 Honus Wagner baseball card, which he bought at auction in 2007 for $2.8 million, realized that that card he had purchased was really just a small piece of paper and subsequently trashed it.  Witnesses say he was in a meeting discussing next years team when all of a sudden he stopped, got up, left the room for ten minutes, came back and continued the discussion.  When a colleague at the meeting asked him where he had went he admitted he had the revelation and trashed the card.
