Kendrick Lamar's 25 Favorite Albums

Lauryn Hill, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998)


Label: Ruffhouse, Columbia
Kendrick Lamar: "That [record] probably had the most hits on it than I’ve ever heard. Even going back and listening to it now. Crazy, I think she was way ahead of her time—just the feeling and the cohesiveness and the concept behind it. It was just genius to me.

“[I] Really just [remember] the videos, how dope the videos were. They were cool and it was just a different feel. It had a natural organic feel. Back then the videos coming out, everybody had the high-class, high-end type look, hers was more natural, being-herself type look. I thought that was dope, and it's dope that I recognized that at a young age.”
