Kanye has shared his review of 'To Pimp A Butterfly.'
Since Kendrick Lamar surprised us all by dropping his highly anticipated sophomore album 'To Pimp A Butterfly' a week early, fans have been taking to Twitter to congratulate the 'The Blacker The Berry' rapper on the record.
Kanye West, who will drop his album 'So Help Me God' later this year,' posted a rare tweet to his peer expressing his love of the album.
"Your meaning, message and execution are gifts to the world," Kanye wrote in all capital letters.
Finally back in the studio… starting my day by listening to Kendrick’s new album!!! Thank you for the music and messaging!!!— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) March 16, 2015
KENDRICK IS AN INSPIRATION. THANK YOU FOR THE VIBRATIONS AND THE SPIRIT. YOUR MEANING, MESSAGE AND EXECUTION ARE GIFTS TO THE WORLD.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) March 17, 2015
Other musicians to tweet their love of the album included Snoop Dogg and Taylor Swift, who Kendrick is also a fan of (remember when he sang Taylor's 'Shake It Off?')

Not everyone on Twitter was showing love to Kendrick's new record though, many hip-hop fans instantly compared 'To Pimp A Butterfly' to Drake's latest release 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late,' causing a mini Twitter war to nearly break out.
