good kidd, m.A.A.d city
Devin the Dude combined with Andre 3000. That's the style that comes to mind when I listen to Kendrick Lamar's music. Some say that his debut, "good kidd, m.A.A.d city," will be album is an instant classic. It certainly is one of the best rap/hop hop albums that I've heard in a while. With that said, it seems as if there are only two great albums that come out each year in today's hip hop market, but to be considered classic should never be taken lightly.

Kendrick really gives you a sense of his personal growth as a man and all that is; religion, growing up in gang infested Compton, Ca., dealing with family and friend dynamics. What I really appreciate about the album is him setting the tone of the album with a skit of young men repenting and finishing the album the same way. This give's the album a nice context as he deals with the "sinful" in his life between the beginning and end of the album.

Speaking of skits, Kendrick delivers on this aspect as well (like it seems all west coast artists due). The skits really gel the album together and give the album a narrative. My favorite song include "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst," "Money Trees," and "Poetic Justice."

Although I'm not quite ready to call it a classic, "good kid, m.A.A.d city" is certainty one of the best rap albums to come out in a while. it's something you listen straight through. Be sure to check it out here!
