Hive Five: Our Daily Listicle of Musical Musings
In the early hours of yesterday morning, Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J attempted to let the world know that he was hopping on board the Kendrick Lamar hype train by checking out his new Good Kid, m.A.A.d city album — only to drop a digital d’oh by posting up a pic revealing that he was mistakenly downloading last years’s Section.80 project instead. Still, Juice’s gaff is telling about the how Lamar’s debut album is being received from the hip-hop community at large — here’s the best of Lamar’s peers going doolally over his album.
