It's testament to Kendrick's mastery that 'great' isn't enough on DAMN

Humanity felt like it needed a new Kendrick Lamar album right now. It needed him to return and simultaneously unpack these conflicting feelings we're having of wanting to mend the world and wanting to just let it burn. It needed him to remind us of the joy of wild and pure creativity and let us revel in his genius. It just needed a new musical tapestry to wrap up in and hide from the world (while trying to understand it).
