good kid/m.A.A.d. reactions: The 20 Best Reactions To Kendrick Lamar's Debut Album

Lamar's father was a member of Chicago's notorious Gangster Disciples, but fled to L.A. to escape that life. Of course, he landed in Compton, and Lamar's childhood was characterized by guns, crack, anger, and fear. He never partook in and is adamantly opposed to the life, but, surrounded by it, is empathetic to its trappings. It's a jarring theme on the album - I can't remember the last time I experienced a piece of art about the experience of being within and without something so desperately. Illmatic? The Third Man? The Great Gatsby? I'm only half kidding. If half.

  • shame on u fool!

    Prodigy of Pac.

  • Yaya

    He sounds like Ludacris to me :=/ I guess a major label can still generate major hype. What makes his overproduced album any different than the millions of other ones out there?

    • clapback He sounds more like Outkast back when they first came out southernplayalistic style.

      He's good, real good

    I just listened to the album and its good, I think Kendrick is really talented and I'm happy
    for him hopefully he will not sellout in the next few years as other rappers have who have blown up in this *****ed up music industry. However this album is not a cl*****ic. A cl*****is
    is Nas illmatic, Tupac albums cl*****ics, biggie ready to die cl*****ic.

  • yeayeayea

    kendrick is like a combo of outkast, nas, pac, and ice cube.he's niiiiicce.

  • RayStrange

    If you don't think this album has cl*****ic potential, you don't know music like you think you do.This album is fluid and tells a story like no other out right now. Honestly, the only thing I don't like about the albums is the openings to some of the songs,they throw me off and i get ready to change them quick only to remember that the rest of the song is cold.

    Overated, grows on you after a few listens. Repetitve flows, lack of a vision for the album. But, solid west coast effort. Most def one to follow.
