Critical Pedagogy from Nas to Kendrick Lamar [By @NegreauxProblem]

I'm trying to keep it alive and not compromise thefeeling we love
You trying to keep it deprived and only co-sign what radio does – Kendrick Lamar

Comparing the two may seem blasphemous to many but it has never been so appropriate until now. The narrative painted from Queen Bridge (Illmatic) to Compton is almost in sync with “good kid, m.A.A.d. city”. Illmatic is a classic and nobody can debate that, so don’t try, albeit, it is Hip-Hop’s artifact.
