One of the most gut wrenching songs and stories on Kendrick Lamar‘s stellar debut album, good kid m.A.A.d. citywas the song “Sing About Me.” A song that details the death of his friends brother and the continuation of “Keisha’s Song” on Section .80, K.Dot’s first person perspective is more than just music. It was real life. 

” ‘Sing About Me’ is definitely a true song,” Kendrick told MTV News‘ Rob Markman in a recent interview. “First verse is speaking from my partner talkin’ to me, speakin’ on a story of how I was there when his brother passed and I got to watch him take his last breath,” he explained.

” ‘Keisha’s Song’ is a real song too, and what I didn’t understand was the fact that she had a younger sister,” he said. “I met her sister and she went at me about her sister Keisha, basically saying she didn’t want her to put her business out there and if your album do come out, don’t mention me, don’t sing about me.”
