To Pimp a Butterfly mirrored a moment of culture shift. After Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, Kendrick widened his gaze, seeking to capture the collective feeling of a generation exasperated by state violence, institutional racism and police brutality.

Underneath the tragedy and adversity, To Pimp a Butterfly is a celebration of the audacity to wake up each morning to try to be better, knowing it could all end in a second, for no reason at all.

The Compton MC’s second major-label album is a masterpiece of fiery outrage, deep jazz and ruthless self-critique.

To Pimp a Butterfly is an immaculate amalgamation of rap, jazz, funk, soul, and spoken word. It cannot be restricted by a single genre. It’s the latest evolution of Black Music, and it’s nothing short of genius.
