A "Poe Mans Dream"

Smoke good, eat good, live good

先说说《Section.80》这张专辑

我的评价是神中神

它作为 Kendrick Lamar 的第一张专辑(理论上是Mixtape),评分是他所有专辑里最低的。这归结于大众审美的流行趋势。

比如人们喜欢的说唱两大CJB - EminemKanye,还有近些年最火的什么 Lil Baby, 什么 Lil Nas X

😅😅😅我直呼差不多得了,能不能来点又好听又有营养的真正的说唱。天天整些什么快嘴什么实验性什么autotune什么trap,谁jb喜欢听这些啊。

回到《Section.80》上来,作为Kendrick Lamar的第一张专辑,它没有什么大制作,大编排,没有实验性整活,简简单单的说唱,但给人最深层次的体悟和感动。

我不会说它是最好的说唱专辑,但这是事实。

再说回歌曲本身

最开始我把Poe Mans 理解为了Poet Man's,后来了解到

The title, “Poe Man’s Dreams,” is a play on the southern pronunciation of ‘poor,’ but also alludes to the classic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. Poe’s cause of death in 1849 was inconclusive, but many historians suspect he died of symptoms related to alcohol poisoning. In this sense, he gave in to his vice, which led to his early demise.

Edgar Allan Poe was famous for moving away from romanticism in his work. Instead, he constructed concepts based on realistic or sometimes horrific situations that many literary analysts believe reflected his life. Kendrick Lamar and GLC do the same thing here, rapping about real-life situations.

Kendrick touches on such themes as giving in to peer pressure or bad habits. This track also sounds similar to Kanye West’s February 2004 track, “Spaceship,” which appears on his first album, The College Dropout—another song which features GLC.

简而言之就是“Poe”是“Poor”的南方发音,而Poe同时是作家爱伦坡的名字,一语双关。

歌词解析

Smoke good, eat good, live good

副歌部分直接表明了什么是 A "Poe Mans Dream" 或者说是His Vice,即抽爽吃爽玩爽。 这句微妙在于歌词所赞扬的正是Lamar所讽刺的

Since my uncles was institutionalized My intuition had said I was suited for family ties

Lamar早期作品里经常通过描写自己与帮派生活的家庭关系来展示他在美国犯罪最猖獗的地区之一:康普顿的成长轨迹。同时这也是个wordplay,“suit”和“tie”通常都是联系在一起的。

Stand for something or fall for anything And you working with two left feet at the skating rink

这句话有很多变体: Alexander HamiltonIf you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. Martin Luther King, Jr.A man who hasn’t found something he is willing to die for is not fit to live. Dr. Dre也曾在1997年的《Been There, Done That.》里使用了这句话

总结

歌曲是Jazz Hiphop的风格基调,使其听感优雅而有力,搭配上GLC的feature部分,给人带来听感上的愉悦和满足。 歌词部分和《A.D.H.D》类似,似写实,似向往,似讽刺,你用不同心态去听就能听出不同的意境。

整首歌曲没有什么华丽的编排,复杂的flow,强行的押韵,但是依旧行云流水,搭配Lamar的唱腔,如同一首散文诗娓娓道来。

这就是说唱的艺术

但这样的音乐很难再见到了
