The Reviews Are In!! Kendrick Lamar’s “How to Pimp A Butterfly”

To Pimp a Butterfly

Kendrick Lamar’s new CD “How to Pimp A Butterfly,” is definitely a breath of fresh air in the days where music sounds the same and everyone’s babbling the same jibberish.  His CD has already set records on Spotify and the general consensus of he CD is that Lamar definitely stepped it up another notch.

Check out the reviews:

The New York Times: To Pimp a Butterfly is bigger than any minor intra-rapper friction. An album that asks questions as big as this one does, and that will be heard by so many, is a huge taunt to Mr. Lamar’s peers—it’s a dare to ride along, a dare to be different, a dare to be great.

USA Today: Like Kanye West’s monumental Yeezus in 2013, Lamar has made something that feels truly genre-shattering with Butterfly—further cementing his status as not only one of the most innovative rappers, but artists, of the moment. 4/4

Los Angeles Times: Lamar’s third studio album is a realm away from his breakout 2012 albumgood kid, m.A.A.d city, equally rich and way, way further gone.

Entertainment Weekly: Kendrick grabs the Best Rapper Alive title by the balls on Butterfly. It’s always satisfying to see superstars reach so high.

New York Daily News: It’s an album meant to be lived with for a long time, making it one of the few recent hip-hop that’s built to last. 5/5

TIME: Lamar wants nothing less than greatness, and To Pimp a Butterfly is yet another step forward on that path.

Chicago Tribune: What’s lacking, if anything, is the potential bounty of singles yielded by good kid, but To Pimp… is designed more as a one-sit continuous listen than a collection of radio-ready hits. 4/4

ABC News: To Pimp a Butterfly is a sobering work made with love and endless sonic imagination. It is an incredibly important record that at the same time isn’t afraid to offend. Its aims are above its mere music. It’s a brutally honest, necessary work anchored in social awareness.

Chris Brown Penalizing Secret Baby Mama For Leaking Baby News

Earlier this week Chris Brown fans were shocked after it was revealed that he was the father of a nine-month-old baby girl.

Now insiders are claiming Chris Brown is furious about the news leak and has retaliated against his baby mama by reducing her child support.

From TMZ

Sources connected with Brown tell TMZ … the singer didn’t know he was the father of 9-month-old Royalty until last month, when Nia Guzman dropped the news. We’re told Chris quickly made a deal with her where he would pay monthly child support.

Our sources say Chris is forking out substantially more than he’d be required to pay if a judge ordered formal child support. There’s a scale on how much a parent pays, based largely on income. We’re told Chris upped that amount and in return demanded that she keep her lips sealed.

We know Chris now believes Nia has been leaking stories and talking about their relationship. As a result, our sources say his lawyers are now preparing legal docs, in which he will ask a judge for an order requiring him to pay child support. It sounds strange, but he’ll pay less than he does now.

Chris Brown…You ARE the Father

Chris Brown broke the Internet last night when it was revealed that he is the father of a nine month old baby.

TMZ broke the news late last night that Chris and a 31-year-old model named Nia are the proud parents of bouncing baby girl.

Apparently the two are not involved romantically but are happily co-parenting.
Meanwhile the people are saying the woman is a friend of Karrueche Tran’s bff Christina Millian.
