Why Kendrick Lamar Is a Sensitive Rapper

The lyrical rapper, like his current rival Drake, also shows his emotional side at the BET Hip Hop Awards.

"I am a sinner/who's probably gonna sin again/Lord forgive me/Lord forgive me/For things I don't understand/Sometimes I need to be alone ... "

Although the song has multiple layers of commentary and Lamar makes references to the "bitch" being the music industry, it is clear that the best part of "BDKMV" is the idea that we can all relate to having someone interrupt our mood. Sometimes we just need to be alone.

"Lord God I come to you a sinner and I humbly repent of my sins. I believe Jesus is Lord ... "

The best part of "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" is the prayer between the elder grandmother, Lamar and his friends after they succumb to anger from gun violence in their community. 

5. "Real"

"I can see you fit the bill/Of living in a world that come with Plan B/Cause Plan A only can make another mistake/And you can't see success coming from plan C/When it all breaks you, you still say you love me/And love them and love when you love her/You love so much, you love when love hurts ... "

The point here: What does love have to do with anything or any plan when you don't love yourself?
