    DAMN is cool. But I did think Kendrick's lyrics were a little lazy. No real punchlines, no notable one-liners.

    Kdot never punches

    He never had one liners that were fire. That's not his thing

    "It's kind of scary ain't it?
    You can't act like no bitch, that only got Tyler Perry famous".

    "Cats so watered down clowns can sink Titanic
    Tie titanium around their neck and watch em panic
    Give me respect, dammit, or get damaged
    Die young, corpse identified by your parents
    Apparently you a parrot
    Mocking me and my blueprint
    But I won’t share it just make you cop it then call you a sheriff
    Stop it, I’m hearin' the comments
    The critics are calling me conscious
    But truthfully, every shooter be callin' me Compton
    So truthfully, only calling me Kweli and Common?
    Proves, that ignorance is bliss"

    "Quantum physics could never show you the world I was in
    When I was ten, back when nine ounces had got you ten
    And nine times out of ten, niggas don’t pay attention
    And when there’s tension in the air, nines come with extensions"

    "And tell me that you biting style, you got a hell of an appetite
    And I'mma be here for a while just buckle up before the ride
    Or knuckle up, if you could fight, we always making ‘em duck or die
    A suit and tie is suitable and usual in suicide
    CSI just might investigate this fucking parasite
    (He dead, amen) That’s what they telling me
    Aim it at your celebrity, this is studio felony
    Ferragami so many and cool enough for the 70’s
    Nigga, payback’s a bitch and bitch you been living in debt with me"

    Yeah half of these aren't punches.

    Its just not impressive

    I aint gon lie tho, I rarely revisit either of these albums. I'd say I listen to two or three songs from Jay shit and can't even quote a Kendrick line from DAMN. If nothing else, I'd say the premise behind 4:44 is more memorable. DAMN, to me, was Kendrick's "hey don't forget I rap too" album. Feel like the next one might be another magnum opus.
