From the Critic’s Notebook in the New York Times, Jon Caramanica released an article featuring Kendrick Lamar in a piece explaining why Storytelling Rappers are both COOL and HOT.

Mr. Lamar is an anointed-by-acclamation savior and a reluctant hit maker…

Mr. Lamar’s is the bolder route. His is a totally unhurried album, easily the most ambitious in hip-hop this year, maybe the most ambitious in any mainstream-focused genre. His songs unfold at the speed of life as it’s often lived — slow, meandering, often unremarkable. Every time some action threatens to accelerate the pace of Mr. Lamar’s album, in comes a voice-mail message from his mother killing the buzz.
