5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Great Lyrics, Classic Hip Hop November 2, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
It takes me several listens to really digest music. Initially, I thought some Cali reviewers were hyping the album up by calling it a classic. I got off work and after the 2nd listen all the way through, I was sold. This has everything you look for in an album with very limited recognized artists.

I appreciate this album because it brings real, everyday life experiences to wax. Kendrick brings a cool story line without compromising lyrics to concept and without forcing himself on beats. The lyrics, beats, and flow combine to make great music. You can tell he had fun making this album. It defintely has an unique 90s feel mixed with today's hip hop. You can play this album straight through. This is my favorite album of 2012, and 2012 has been a great year for Rap and Hip Hop.

This is great music.

Kendrick Lamar's debut effort Good Kid: M.A.A.D City [Deluxe Edition] materializes just at the right time to give West Coast rap some renewed notability. Kendrick Lamar is one today's most unique rappers. Left of center, he joins the likes of Drake and KiD CuDi, paving his own pathway. Good Kid m.A.A.d City is not only one of 2012's best rap albums but also one of the year's `crowning achievements.' Conceptually structured around its title - Kendrick is ultimately a good kid trapped in Compton, which is chucked full of vices within the sins/demons of a bad, rough city - Lamar details his early life experience.

"Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter's Daughter" opens with a prayer that ultimately alludes to the title of the album. Featuring soulful, old-school production by Tha Bizness, "Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter's Daughter" finds Kendrick narratively lusting for a 'no-good' girl. Lamar's rhymes are agile and well conceived, eliminating need for a hook (there is none). As customary throughout the effort, an interlude (skit) foreshadows successive tracks, much like a novel.

On "B*tch, Don't Kill My Vibe," producer Sounwave's production incorporates a Boom Clap Bachelors sample ("Tiden Flyver"). Over a lush, west coast characteristic sound, Lamar is on autopilot, admitting his improprieties while also admonishing anyone to attempt to block his individuality as a person and artist. Lamar's vocal inflections and athletic flow help to make this cut another brilliant contribution.

"Backseat Freestyle" sports some of Hit-Boy's best production work. The Intro/outro is particularly notable by Lamar: "Martin had a dream, Martin had a dream, Kendrick have a dream...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album October 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Flawless top to bottom. I get the feeling 5-10 years from now this will be looked at as a Hip Hop Classic and will leave a footprint that will stand the test of time for years to come. This is a brilliant masterpiece. Any fan of Hip Hop should own this whether digital or physical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Love Love April 3, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Good kid m.a.a.d city is one of the best cd's I've heard in a while. It reminds me of 90s story telling type of rap. I would recommend this cd to anyone who likes real music. It has great beats and the content is not just money, h**s, clothes. He speaks on real life situations that we all went through or are going through. The thing that makes this cd so good, is the fact that he is just telling us stories about his REAL life in Compton. Get the cd if you don't already have it, you will not be disappointed. My favorite songs : Back seat freestyle, Money trees, Bish don't kill my vibe, the prayer at the beginning ,who am I kidding the whole cd is FIRE !!!

I normally don't write reviews, and Amazon can vouch for that lol. This album however deserves my praise. This is what we think when we are listening to hip-hop. Not that 2 Chainz B.S. not to knock his hustle though. I know a lot of people who loves the swimming pool song but it doesn't stop there. This is a new classic. I love concept music and Kendrick has bars to fill every concept. I was hoping for some Dre music but it definitely wasn't needed at all. Do your self and buy this album and listen to each song in order and you will be hooked like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good kid classic cd!!!! October 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Just the album cover alone makes this a classic (so real he has a mini van on the deluxe cover to represent the struggle how deep is that not a phantom or lambo like most of deez wack mc's represent while they steady cover up no rap skills in exchange for fashion smh) Kendrick is true to his lyrics all the way down to his appearance. He's like the west coast version of j.cole both artist have more to offer to this hip hop game. Whole album is nice!!

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet album April 14, 2014
By Bug
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
seriously get it and listen to it. really deep album. however, this album focuses on Kendrick's violence-impregnated youth in Compton so if you're sensitive to the sounds of gunshots or discussions of gang activity be aware of that.

But it's a really inspired and good album with a lot of variety.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a huge hip-hop fan and I can't express enough how amazing this cd is. I tend to listen to Wu-Tang and Outkast most often but Kendrick is playing all day everyday in my car. His lyrics give me chills (literally) and his beats are second to none.
