DAMN-First Impression

This was my first time listening to a well-known American rapper Kendric Lamar’s album. Overall, I believe through his album “Damn,” Kendric Lamar desired to express his experiences or thoughts related to several social issues including racism. Referring to his personal experiences or even others’ stories, he makes his points of view toward different social problems. I was surprised when I observed that song titles were almost composed of one word. Considering the songs I knew since I was born, there wasn’t a song that has a one-word title. The usage of publishing a song with a one-word title emphasizes the message that Kendric Lamar wants to convey to the audience. Furthermore, I realized that Lamar sometimes portrays himself as “God.” The majority of the songs has a similar rhythm: repetitive and clear sound.
