Kendrick Lamar is yet another new addition to my ever-growing Itunes library. With the inception of the internet in my life, I seem to be stumbling upon a new artist every day or two and I love it. So far I’ve only downloaded Lamar’s mixtape O(verly) D(edidcated), but I will surely get the rest of his discography. One of the standouts on O.D. is definitely “Ignorance is Bliss”. Lamar goes in on the slow, melodic beat with a flow quicker than D. Rose.
What intrigues me most about Lamar is his unusual upbringing. Lamar is from the rough streets of Compton, California, however, he never joined a gang or even smoked marijuana. Lamar was also straight-A student throughout high school.[audio http://www.fileden.com/files/2011/2/22/3085020//08 Ignorance Is Bliss.mp3]
