While it’s only been a few seconds since Kendrick Lamar dropped DAMN., fan reactions have been swift. Just before the album was officially released on streaming platforms like Apple Music Thursday evening (April 13), the project was leaked.
Of course, the industry began buzzing.

There were also the dedicated fans and admirers of the rapper who decided to play by the rules, not matter how good the temptations.
Nonetheless, the reactions continued from both versions.
Kendrick Lamar is actually worth all the hype he gets. Nobody can say he overrated.
