Everything The eStreets Are Saying About Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN.'
Kendrick Lamar SZN has returned. If you’re like myself and others, you probably didn’t get much sleep because you were waiting, anticipating iTunes to unleash DAMN. upon our earholes. Now that it is out, the eStreets are burning on fire with congratulations for the good kid from the m.A.A.d city on another well crafted, finely tuned project.
Without spoiling too much for those who have yet to listen, Kung-Fu Kenny takes us on a roller coaster ride, providing ups (“YAH.”), downs (“FEEL.”), sexy twists (“LUST.”) and an adrenaline-pumping ending (“GOD.”, “DUCKWORTH.”). As the TDE wunderkind shares this disdain of FOX News to commenting on the state of society in Trump’s America to sharing his joy for the Creator — his fourth studio album is filled to the brim with hot takes and meme-worthy quotables which should be populating your timeline right at this very moment.
As the good kid is showing that he wants to be a good man, DAMN. has already elicited quite the response from the online community. In keeping it 100 with Mr. Duckworth, some have said they loved this album, while others have an opposite opinion. We’ve compiled some of the best quips from Twitter to share with you all below, so enjoy. And if you haven’t peeped our First-Take Listen review of DAMN., don’t worry, we got you covered.
Kendrick Lamar really been pitching shutouts since Overly Dedicated.

Don’t tell me Kendrick’s album was trash if your playlist includes Passion Fruit and Controlla.

Kendrick Duckworth – FEAR.
At age 7 he fears his mother.
At age 17 he fears the police.
At age 27 he fears judgement.
