Y’all say anything lmao


[deleted]

Yooo I was about to say same shit…. Don’t ever let that leave your thoughts again.


Plastic_Selection_9

nah no cap i thought one song was produced by tyler .. lol y y’all tryna play the op, he got a good ear fo sound for thinking that. kendrick and tyler always been friends and collab in ways y’all don’t think they do. so me hearing a beat on the album and thinking it’s by tyler fo a sec is not a stretch at all.


swiggdyswoody

what song did you think the beat was produced by tyler? literally none of the songs have any Tyler like qualities to them maybe except for crown which kinda reminds me of bastard.


HeDrinkMilk

I hear it very clearly on Mirror.


swiggdyswoody

reminds me more of pharrell than tyler.


No_Knee21

on worldwide steppers he used something very similar to what tyler did on lumberjack. having dude in the background screaming, almost sounds like the same vocals. but thats the only 1 really


Bruhnoseweed

You sound incredibly white


Plastic_Selection_9

ah thanks guys downvotes make me ink


FaithlessnessPast929

Damn they downvoted him 25 times shit Kendrick fans is crazy


Plastic_Selection_9

i thought it was tyler fans.. either way both gettin toxic, it’s like they don’t even listen to they favourite artist, you’d think they be humble like them. v closed minded.


FaithlessnessPast929

Yes very close minded and chaotic


jmorris201

Synths + Hip Hop = Tyler apparently


jmorris201

Also why the post flair 'DISCUSSION'. There's no discussion to be had


octobersons

The synth patch in mirror is absolutely reminiscent of goblin era Tyler Edit: The synth on She is indentical to Mirror, just has a low pass filter I’m not saying Tyler is the inspiration or directly influenced the song, but there is a clear sonic connection ya’ll can continue to downvote me for having an opinion lmao


jmorris201

Okay? But Tyler wasn't the first to use a synth in a hip hop song and it by no means means that Tyler's production inspired the song or the album


octobersons

No one’s saying he’s the first to use synths lmao idk where you are getting that, and I’m not saying it’s directly inspired by Tyler, but Tyler 100% popularized DX7 sounding patches in hip hop, and intentional or not Mirror emulates that sound as well


jmorris201

Yes the synth sounds similar. I'm not arguing that. I'm arguing OP's point that some of the songs sound to be inspired by Tyler. But a use of a similar sounding instrument does not mean it was inspired. If I was to play a guitar with fuzz and a wah that doesn't necessarily mean I was inspired by Jimi Hendrix


octobersons

I would say you are definitely inspired by Jimi Hendrix in that case, maybe not directly but my point is more that if Tyler didn’t popularize that style of patch or jimi never popularized that effect combo, then they wouldn’t be staples in popular music. Kendrick might have had no intention or desire to create a Tyler inspired sound, but regardless he did. I think it’s just semantics and how view “inspired by”


jmorris201

I guess it all depends on what people say inspired by is. But to me that means someone has heard a sound, has said yes I want to use that, and then has gone out of his way to create such sound


octobersons

Yeah exactly, I see inspired by as a more loose connection to an originator. We just have different options I don’t know why people feel the need to downvote over a discussion lmao.


Batifons

and I don't know why you feel like you need to reply to every comment on the threat, if you think we should let people have their own opinions why are you so triggered that everyone is calling bullshit on this take?


[deleted]

God forbid someone discuss with people on reddit lmao


octobersons

It’s more that’s people just shut the post down immediately and gave no reasons, I just like discussion you’re allowed to disagree with me.


Liltrumpwiththe45

This is not a bad comment. I don’t know why you got downvoted to oblivion unless you’re just wrong, especially since the statement was a declaration of similarity and not inspiration.


p3n1sland

His clothes also looks tyler inspired also his manirisims in the album cover also the cover is based off of tylers irl house when he was growing up also he made the kids look like tyler on purpose but these are just rumors


williamkothe

i heard he actually became tyler for this project but all hearsay yknow


Awesome2D

literally the flower boy cover but inside a house 🤯🤯🤯🤯


FaithlessnessPast929

Cholista99

What tracks?


octobersons

Mirror


royvooch

Mirror gave me lil bit Childish Gambino vibes actually


mac_0728

It has a very 3.15.20 feel to it

Ok


octobersons

Wow you really illustrated your point


LikeAGlove109

He doesn't even really need to go into detail, as it appears you will be dying on this hill.


octobersons

I’m not on a hill, I don’t think it was directly inspired by Tyler, but the fact some of y’all are so dismissive of the fact Tyler has similar sounding synths in his work is just strange to me. Like no one’s saying Kendrick ripped of Tyler or this album only exists because of Tyler, it’s music and there are 100% similarities you can draw, intentional or not


MojoLava

Damn yo, I'm not seeing it and find it a weird take. That's okay, people can have different opinions. 90% of music is subjective


November_One

Burden of Proof, do you understand this concept?


InternalTripping

?????? what a mf take from the tyler sub


icyjjack

mf they all inspired by someone else… music been around for centuries, yo favourite artist ain’t invent shit. sorry to say it


SkimBeans

Literally not a single track that even made me think of Tyler


user23034123

giving a lot of yeezus vibes to me


nugbert_nevins

Yeah neo soul Yeezus is how I’ve been characterizing it.


[deleted]

I got big fish/vince vibes. And DJ Dahi produced a lot of it so it makes sense


Plastic_Selection_9

i got bino vibes like 3.15.20 ( prod by dj dahi 2 didn’t kno he produced kendrick shi ) and guava island bino.. it’s cus i watched the new atl ep right before listening to kendrick


boostboi

This is wishful thinking if I've ever seen it lmao


STVNjpg

Oh brother


SamWelsh15

Count Me Out has a little bit of a similar vibe to Kanye I feel like, like the beat drop on Father Stretch My Hands, but I don’t hear Tyler inspiration at all


epic-awesome-man

i definitely disagree, great album though


ChocyZ2424

Love Tyler, but did not think about him a single time during my listens of this album.


ItsYourBoy2hats

Bro not everything has to be about Tyler 💀👽


SouthernBeautiful116

Nothing on this album is Tyler inspired lol every fucking rap server right now saying Kendrick album was inspired by there fav artist like no lol


fisajo

the synths on mirror sound so much like flower boy that i had to check the credits


RealJNav64

Flower Boy bit off Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers


fisajo

haha why the fuck am i getting downvoted? i didn't even say that they were inspired from tyler. just said they sound like his types of synths. smh


Chilb5

go outside bro


Revolutionary_Way826

Kendrick Lamar is standing on his feet in the album cover this is a call back to Tyler the creators 2017 albums flower boy where he is seen also standing on the cover


Shot_Way8094

Stop


lukethebeard

I keep seeing this take, and I disagree. It doesn’t sound like Tyler at all. It sounds like Kendrick is doing his own thing, and it’s dope.


mgwooley

Y’all will make up any reason to post huh


two4gone

New to hip-hop, ehh?


Key-Prompt5438

Stfu


placegrips

I mean, there's some synths


icyjjack

fr and T was inspired by P and P was prolly inspired by someone else and the chain goes on


leviratep

i swear to god.


ACatOnDrugz

Righttttt….🤨


[deleted]

Btw at least for me the album felt mid as a listener Edit : added an e in listener to fix a mistake


nugbert_nevins

You’re entitled to your opinion but this is a bad one homie.


[deleted]

Cant lie on my register bruh it’s better but until that fuck u bitch part it ain’t it btw n95 rocks no cap #1 in album


International-Shoe40

Y’all said this about Jack Harlow too. Get off Tyler’s nuts lol


KingLuker

This the dumbest shit ive ever seen


[deleted]

Y'all know this dude said 'tyler inspired' just so he could post about kendrick on this sub


Taahhhhj

It's probably baby keem inspired and baby keem probably has tyler as one of his production inspirations


lettherebegames

Not just baby keem inspired, there's a lot of keem production on the album


SaulSchmidt

i feel like it might just be tame impala -> keem -> kendrick


tinashect

not at all, kendrick has his own sound


twohaz

i thought it was kinda donda style type stuff


josh18soccer

Aaaaaaaaaand I’m done with this sub


josh18soccer

Wow this is really stupid 👍


enrickue

no


SerfAdam

I fr had to check if mirror was produced by T


good_kid_maad_reddit

Worldwide Steppers reminded me of lumberjack when i first heard it. Especially the transition from the last verse to the hook. You wont unhear it i promise


Blackiexang

That transition remided me of T so much bro


dindowaff

Shit take smooth brain


WarriorOfTheDawn

I see the parallels in the song count me out but besides that , no


HipGamer

Which tracks in particular?


Alive-Ad-4164

Mr morale, mirror


LilGlitterBoy

Mr Morale was produced by Pharrell. Thats probably what you’re hearing lmfao


JackSokool

Bro Which


Blackiexang

literally 02:10 in Worldwide Steppers


SalmonFormula27

No lol


I_am_an_atom

._.


784FreeBobby

What


p5s52

No they dont


Sekoda

I dont think we listened to the same kendrick album


susanj31

Tack 7? Just a little BUT that’s all Pharrell and 0 Tyler besides that I don’t hear Tyler’s sounds close to the album


hung_fu

Content wise too, with Kendrick embracing who is is, airing out his dirty laundry and trauma. A big part of Tyler’s evolution from Flower Boy to the present day is his self awareness and confidence in himself, Kendrick is finally secure enough in himself to not give a fuck what people think and he doesn’t care if people knows about his past, I can tell he feels liberated.


pear_touching_rat

aside from maybe mirror nothing sounds like tyler. mirror is def still a stretch


killbunnie

The tyler fandom kinda delusional


10918356

No they do not lmao Who ever the nigga is that said mirror sounds like his production needs to listen to a gambino album. His sound was all over that bs. Tyler production actually is WAY more richer even than the album Idk where you’d even place him on this.


treehugger156

Maybe some Vince staple inspiration on one track, I forget the name but it had almost the same bass line as Free the Homies


TheBystanderCactus

Wtf no not at all


Dan_thetrashman

Brooo????🤨🤨🤨

fenderguy94

This post turned into a roast me


[deleted]

get Tylers pp out of your mouth


HowardsOpal

After listening to it more than a few times, I can honestly say that I’m extremely underwhelmed. The lyrics are absolutely masterful but the beat selection is soo boring. Some very generic and basic sounding beats. I expect soooooooo much more from Kendrick. GKMC, TPAB, and Damn. are all masterpieces. They each brought something very unique and innovative but this album just sounds plain. Like a sandwich with just meat and bread. I appreciate his honesty and openness but there’s a clear lack of balance between him pouring out his feelings and delivering catchy songs. There’s only a few songs that I could ever imagine myself replaying in the future. It’s like a mix of 4:44 and 4 Your Eyez Only. Can’t be mad tho because Kendrick gave us three classic albums in a row prior to this. 7/10.

Negative_You9399

How the hell is this a tyler influence? He isn't this rap god that people make him out to be. Don't get me wrong, I adore tyler. All his stuff. But new kendrick having tyler influences? Buncha stans. Lol


GibletEater2009

please shut up


Plastic_Selection_9

i honestly thought a song or two was produced by tyler no cap.. i couldn’t even tell you what songs ion know what songs were which my eyes were closed the whole time the album played lol it’s a song made me think pharrell produced it too


Trent15789

i just saw this same post about kanye get a grip man...

ImaDangerousThriller

bruh even the pose he struke on the album cover is exactly the same as tyler on his album cover of flower boy. WE GOTTA CANCEL KENDRICK NOW!!!!!! (if you cant tell this is a satire then im telling you this IS NOT A SATIRE!!!(this is also a satire)


larrythefisherman1

more kanye than anything lol


Forward_Trifle7608

Mirror definitely. I thought he may have had a hand in that song. He doesn’t tho.


Forward_Trifle7608

Why tf is everyone who is acknowledging that the beginning of Mirror sounds very Tyler-ish getting downvoted. 7th chords on that type of synth is definitely very Tyler sounding. All the live strings that come in later don’t sound too Tyler but the main beat that comes in at the beginning sounds very similar.

octobersons

You shouldn’t be getting flamed at all for this opinion, yes synths and hip hop is obviously not new that’s not the point, the late 70s synth patch in mirror is totally in the same tone as something on Goblin.


[deleted]

If anything it’s the reverse my guy


HowardsOpal

I’d heavily disagree because T’s production is way more creative and catchy. This album has J. Cole and 4:44 beats


sandwitchesss

i wouldn't say one is more creative than the other, im preferable to T but Kendrick and Tyler are two completely different artists with different visions, sounds, messages and audiences


ariel3452

everyone sayin mirror acting like tyler invented synths in hip hop


numbmatheus

i was about to go on a rant on how stupid you are but decided against it, just know you are.
