I'm a big fan of Talib Kweli, a HUGE fan of Kendrick Lamar (hell, we all are: wait til you see Ra'z Al Ghoul's Bible/Hip hop post), and I don't know much about Curren$y. As a result, I expected this track to be fire. I first heard the audio version about a month ago and didn't like it. I really didn't like it. Like, really. I was very disappointed. In all fairness, I only listened to it two or three times. Normally I'll spend six or more listens before I truly judge a track. I couldn't do it this time.
Enter video. Video got me. Song still isn't top ten of the month, but the visual presentation makes it something to keep at. I actually really liked the video, surprising even myself. Still not too fond of the song, though. And yes, Kendrick Lamar kills. Check it out.
