iTunes Review

West Coast hip-hop elders like Snoop and Dre have virtually anointed Kendrick Lamar to carry on the legacy of gangsta rap. His second studio album good kid, M.A.A.d city, conceptual enough to be a rock opera, certainly uplifts the genre with its near-biblical themes: religion vs. violence and monogamy vs. lust. Verbally nimble, Lamar experiments with a variety of different lyrical styles, from the Bone Thugz-type of delivery on “Swimming Pools (Drank)” to the more straightforward orthodox G-funk flow on “m.A.A.d. City feat. MC Eiht.” Like prog rock, Lamar’s tracks have songs within songs—sudden tempo changes with alter egos and embedded interludes, such as unscripted recordings of his parents asking for their car back and neighborhood homies planning their latest conquest. These snippets pepper the album providing an anthropological glimpse into his life in Compton. The deluxe version of good kid, m.A.A.d. city features five bonus tracks.

Best hip hop album since 2001 by dr dre

Best rapper at the moment

An all time great...

My oh my! K.Dot dropped a classic right here, the narrative is amazing, Sing to Me, Dying of Thirst is one of the deepest songs you will ever hear, real and meaningful music that a lot of artists today can't even get close to.

Best rap album to date of this generation

The album is simply a work of art. Kendrick went off on the whole album. Telling a story of a day in Compton, every song is flawless from the beats, lyrics, flow. Kendrick's massage in this album is 'coming from a dark place to a positive space' and he nailed giving that message through his lyrics and for his fans to relate to that story and message in their own way, this album is the album of life

Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated rapper Kendrick Lamar is one of the rare artists who has achieved critical and commercial success while earning the respect and support of those who inspired him.

Youngest Head Nigga in Charge (2003), issued when he was only 16 years old, caught the attention of Top Dawg Entertainment and led to a long-term association that helped raise the rapper's...
