If Kendrick gets in, he'll be the last rap artist possibly ever to make it in. It's too early to tell if he's a HOF artist, but I can see him managing to squeeze in, he's innovating west coast rap with songs like "I".

Section.80, Good Kid Maad City, To Pimp A Butterfly...

One of the best three-album runs in history. All hail the King.

He's becoming quite a pressing concern as far as rap goes. To Pimp a Butterfly is easily a worthy follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city and Section.80.

If he's able to nail one more album like those three, I would actually be comfortable calling him a front-runner for this year in the Hall of Fame.

We haven't even had a chance to vote in To Pimp a Butterfly and he's already released the fourth album in a solid four album run with untitled unmastered.

We can't vote it in, due to the compilation rule, but the effect stays: Kendrick Lamar's a front-runner, and barring him doing something stupid, his induction is a likely possibility.

I don't get why everyone is talking about Lamar like he's good. Look at Swimming Pools, it sounds like every other song of it's time, and his flow is horrid on the rest of his first album, and for the rest of his career his delivery is very hit or miss... To put it bluntly Kendrick isn't that good of a rapper. I vote a strong no
