5 years ago today, my favorite album from my favorite new school artist was released. This album was so relatable for me because I have never lived in the best area and I have always been a good kid but the people around me are usually different. It was great to see that someone as big as Kendrick had the same type of story. I purchased this album in middle school, and I only had 2 albums on my iPod that whole year (GKMC and Undeniable). Now, I'll admit I don't listen as much because I played it out, but songs like The Art Of Peer Pressure and Good Kid still hit me hard. When I go back to tracks like Maad City the nostalgia is crazy because it just immediatly brings back that middle school vibe when the second half comes on. I remember I would fall asleep to Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst EVERY SINGLE DAY that whole year pretty much. Plus there were fun tracks like Backseat Freestylt and Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe that always slapped. Anyways y'all probably dont give a fuck about my story but I just wanted to share my appreciation for this album that isn't Kendrick's best, but will always be my favorite

5 years ago today the kid @kendricklamar and @topdawgent blessed not only our city but our culture. LA came together this night before the release for one of the most memorable moments in my life. Dot performed in front of staples right after the game as the streets flooded and we celebrated what we all new would be a new chapter in Los Angeles Hip Hop Culture. I thank @retone @iamstillpunch @miyatola @dangerookipawaa and the rest of the the TDE family for moving the culture forward. Instrumental by @ichibandon since @Instagram took my video down with the original music!

Artist: Kendrick Lamar
Type of Project: Album
Name of Project: good kid, mAAd city
Release Date: 10/22/12

Today marks the 5th anniversary of one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time: Kendrick Lamar’s “good kid, mAAd city.” I’ve decided to make my first post in a while a review of it to commemorate it. GKMC is an album that is very special to me. It was the album that got me interested in rap. It’s a classic. GKMC is a concept album describing Kendrick’s life in the streets of Compton. He tells amazing stories in some tracks, such as “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst,” where Kendrick raps about his dead friend and the sister of Keisha, who was the center of “Keisha’s Song” on “Section.80.” That song could quite possibly be Kendrick’s best song, and it beautifully demonstrates Kendrick’s elite storytelling ability. Another song that demonstrates this skill is “The Art of Peer Pressure,” where Kendrick raps about a robbery he and his homies attempted. GKMC also has several complete bangers, such as “Backseat Freestyle” and “Money Trees,” which contains a great Jay Rock feature. Another highlight from this album is “mAAd city,” in which Kendrick raps about all of his experiences in Compton. That song also features a great feature from MC Eiht. Overall, Kendrick Lamar’s “good kid, mAAd city” is a certified masterpiece and classic, and is easily my favorite Kendrick album. This album could definitely go down as a top 20 album of all time, and it only gets better with age. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

@Regranned from @iamstillpunch - 5 years ago today. This album changed a lot of lives. From TDE to our families to everyone who worked on the album to the fans. This album dropped at a time when it wasn't popular to make a real ALBUM. The verses, hooks, b sections, production, background vocals, harmonies, skits, sequencing, mixes, album art, packaging, to Q hand writing the title etc.... this album is a true classic.

Holy shit, I can’t believe this one. 5 years ago today, Black Hippy member @KendrickLamar released his 2nd album good kid, m.A.A.d. city under @TopDawgEnt as well as Aftermath Entertainment & @Interscope. Produced by those such @ScoopDeVille as well as @Pharrell & @JustBlaze, it’s a near-perfect concept album revolving around Kendrick’s teenage experiences in the drug-infested streets & gang lifestyle of his hometown of Compton
