EDITORS’ NOTES

One of his generation's premier practitioners of the art of the rap album, Kendrick Lamar uses interstitial dialogue, 12-minute song suites, and jazzy instrumental tangents to create a rich collage of sounds with a sense of narrative. But it's his talent as an MC, the sheer range of flows and voices and topics he wields in tightly written verses, that makes him a star.
