It's a compelling piece of work that features production by Pharrell Williams, rapper Terrace Martin, Boi-1da and Rahki.Lamar's socially conscious messages are once again easy to digest, especially on "Institutionalized" featuring Bilal, Anna Wise and Snoop Dogg. "Mortal Man" is a 12-minute song that finds Lamar questioning the loyalty of people in troubled times. He speaks about the betrayal of influential leaders from Moses to Martin Luther King Jr., reads a poem then closes the song with a hypothetical conversation with Tupac Shakur before asking the late rapper about his perspective of today's changing world.
