Well, that didn’t take very long.
Kendrick Lamar‘s new album, To Pimp a Butterfly, has achieved a score of 96 on Metacritic, a website that aggregates reviews of music albums from major newpapers, magazines and digital publishers.
According to the website, a Metascore “distills the opinions of the most respected critics writing online and in print to a single number.” In the case of TPAB, that number, 96, now represents the highest rated hip-hop LP of all-time. That is not a misprint. All. Time.
