I was writing a complicated facebook status about the role of public universities and listening to Kendrick Lamar, and I was so dismayed to begin to realize that Donald Trump was speaking in my right ear song after song after song. What the hell, Kendrick, please no, I was thinking – there’s topical, and then there’s Donald Trump on repeat underneath every song for an entire album? I will have a very hard time saying great things about this album! And I’d heard it was so good!
And then I realized that my open tab about Donald Trump not knowing why we had a Civil War was playing an embedded video of his very dumb speech.
I really like what I know of To Pimp A Butterfly so far. It would be disingenuous to say I know it well. On the other hand, I can tell you for certain that you do not have to listen to Donald Trump at the same time as listening to Kendrick Lamar.
