Although my comments about Kendrick Lamar may have given off a vibe that I don’t like his work, I actually really enjoy his work. Good Kid M.A.A.D. City, while a gangsta rap album, is more complex then whatever passes for gangsta rap these days. Yeah, there’s the bangers like Backseat Freestyle, but there’s also songs like Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst which is the complete opposite of a banger. Kendrick Lamar knows how to make an album that is just more than some gangbanger nonsense, which is unusual in gangsta rap these days.
