weekend music: wesley’s theory, kendrick lamar

kendrick lamar’s new album, to pimp a butterfly, was leaked last sunday, and it set the music industry ablaze.  markedly different from good kid, M.A.A.D. city, it’s the kind of art that makes you respect hip hop as a modern griot movement and not just twerk team anthems.  my favorite album review came from the atlantic where it was called “a dense, astonishing, cliché-busting confession about how [kendrick lamar’s] fear of failure intertwines with his race, community, ambition, and psychology.”
