I think u had to listen to Kendrick's album without skipping to hear the story unfold. At first I didn't like it, but that was because I skipped from song to song and missed the skits and additional songs. The story his album tells is awesome and when his friends brother gets shot I always cry. It reminds me of a dude that got shot on my corner. I feel Kendrick.



I actually have the entire album.....LOL.....listened to it too.....Mr00 purchased it.....I just didn't like it...like I said I love a few of the songs......



You know what...just

I was wondering if they screw up every genre. Like I heard a lot of country music fans say that Taylor Swift isn't country, she's pop.

I feel about the Good Kid, Mad City album like I feel about Blu's Below The Heaven album.

When Blu dropped Below The Heaven in 2007, I was just entering college and working 2 jobs, and Blu was mainly rapping about working multiple blue collar jobs, becoming an adult, dating and breaking up, and reflecting on the past and future. His album was pretty much the soundtrack to my life in 2007, nearly each song being something I could vibe to sonically and conceptually. I hear a track like "In Remembrance of Me", and he says stuff like "I saw the whole world through that girls eyes," and it's surreal how similar my thoughts and experiences were. That was the first time in a long time where I connected with an album like it was made just for my experiences.

I have the same thoughts about Good Kid, Maad City, except probably to an even greater extent. I've been called a good kid all my life and I too wonder sometimes, as Kendrick did in the track where he first smoked weed, if I told you I did something really bad, would you believe me? Or just perceive me as little ole Random. I have vivid memories of dating my own "Sharain." I remember this cute ass girl that I met at a block party, only to learn she lived in this project complex with a bunch of dudes that would ask me "where you from my Brotha?".

So when she invited me over, I rode a bike over there with my cousin and friend just because I was afraid I might get jumped if I went by myself. At that age, I used to rap with my boys and we were indeed listening to Young Jeezy and Wayne around that time, almost all day, fooling around, looking for something to get into. Plenty of adventures that make me relate to the art of peerpressure. Then there is the fact that I don't drink but my dads side of the family were alcoholics. So many emotions and sensibilities that hit hard to me, most notably the main theme of being pulled in two directions as a "good kid" in a "mad city."

Kendrick is 26, I'm 25, and I believe he made an album that many black boys our age can relate to, and I appreciate that...just like I appreciated Blu's album for being something a lot of 21-year-old black dudes could relate to.

I understand that relating to music isn't the same as that music actually being good. You have to separate the two if you're judging the music. There are flaws in Good Kid Maad City, and I can objectively point out a few of the corny hooks, at times weak lyricism, and questionable beats...but as a whole I think it's clear that hip hop in general is on the cusp of accepting the project as a classic.
