    lol, same bro, I got City Under the City and Ugly Heroes cds, probably heard them straight through once each.  Definitely liked it, but for whatever reason just haven't gotten to really give good listens to it.

    I don't know if you guys heard about this guy, but he is definitely one of the best flow rappers out there

    I'm talking about the first guy

    For an art form to be game changing, it needs a receiving audience. I completely agree with you that it is through albums that an artist's merit should be judged. I also agree that a good album is hard to find in mainstream hip-hop. However, I still stick by my stance that TPAB is game changing. Again, what does it take for an art form to do so? I'm sure there are some rappers that we both have no idea about that are absolutely amazing and out of this world. But without having their voices heard, how can the game actually be changed?
    For an artist to be massively recognized has its benefits, and Kendrick completely understands his role in such a game. To have an exposure like him and deliver similar quality albums as underground rap are only beneficial for the game, and will introduce the (sometimes) ignorant masses to the true art of the genre. This, in turn, may incite other mainstream and underground rappers alike to release something that's both widely relatable and artistically cohesive.
    Plus, I still believe that TPAB stands on its own compared to other underground pieces. I remember you posting something along the lines of an MC failing if his/her message cannot be heard right away (not at face value, mind you), and I must respectfully disagree. Half the fun of analyzing poetry for me is digging into the subtle, even obscure references, because every time I revisit some work, I discover something entirely new. Is the artist being obscure just for the sake of being hard to understand? Yeah, some are, but I still enjoy that. Thing about TPAB that I disagree with you is that it's even impressive sonically to me. I have a feeling that you'll offer some examples that counter my perspective (and I always welcome them), but since these things are extremely subjective in nature, I'll likely still stick by my stance. And I'm talking in terms of a sort of hip-hop-debate-equals here.
    EDIT: Grammar and gender. Also, the "questions" I asked were directly in response to a previous post that stated -- and I paraphrase -- TPAB is Kendrick's weakest storytelling device.
