After much anticipation the Compton rhyme slayer Kendrick Lamar’s debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, is finally here – and its fucking great.
Quite honestly not much else needs to be said.
Kendrick Lamar is the epitome of real lyricism in hip hop! He continues to forge the path through hip hop nay-sayers who claim lyricism died in the “golden era” of the 90s.
Good Kid, MAAd City is stunningly poetic, skillful, powerful and hypnotizing. Even when his voice occasionally gets annoying you cannot deny this mans passion and dedication to his craft. Good Kid, MAAd City cements Kendrick Lamar as the legend he was destined to be. Anyone who claims otherwise needs to explore Kendrick’s past, current and future music.
This is REAL HIP HOP.
