Third Eye by contraomnes Third Eye by contraomnes
Check out the October 29-November 5 issue of the New Yorker! Kendrick Lamar drops his new album ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D.’ and the New Yorker’s Sasha Frere-Jones weighs in this Compton bred rapper, blowing up right now and taken under the wing of Dr. Dre.

The album is about Kendrick caught in the struggle of Compton and using music to escape all the suffering. There are so many parallels to the early life of the Buddha when he was still Siddhartha, it seemed only natural.

Amazing work. Love the sense of texture and colour. Reminds me of one of my favourite artists, Tomer Hanuka...
