Production that ranges from funk to jazz to conventional hip-hop all intertwines together to create a beautiful soundscapes for Lamar to express all of his emotions on. Lyrically speaking, Lamar is as polished as he’s ever been especially on tracks like “The Blacker the Berry”, “Hood Politics” and “How Much a Dollar Cost”. “Blacker” is the cry of the forsaken black man who, although tormented, is not afraid of speaking against the tyranny of his oppressors: “I’m the biggest hypocrite of 2015 / Once
