I agree with Slo about Chief. And Kendrick.

and most things. I'm his dawg...

But seriously, just to reiterate, Kendrick has gotten caught up a little in the mainstream, and hes a ladies man so theres no shortage of slow jams, but theres no question about his talent as a rapper and performer. Killer.

Dont have time to write a serious review, but a 13 by Chief is a joke so I had to attempt to rectify. You should stop blindly reviewing based on the songs you've overheard at the bar/on the radio. I know you havent gone through the Media section and given it a good listen, because if you had you would have heard an incredible lyricist with impeccable flow, who also puts out mainstream music to appease the masses (and make money). How about before you dole out 13's and ask for song recos, you do your own research and at least listen to the music two tabs over.

I'm not a fan yet... I can be converted though. Like what's the big deal about this guy. I feel like I hear him all the time and every time I do, my ears start bleeding. Are they any songs that I am missing.

Recommend me some songs

Chief Beef: I am not impressed yet
