Review: Kendrick Lamar-good kid, m.A.A.d city

posted by Alberto October 23, 2012

Charisma, substance, lyrics, uniqueness and work ethic are written on a poster board in Dr. Dre’s studio.  These are things he is looking for in an artist in order to work with them and it is something he has obviously seen in artists like Eminem and 50 Cent when he signed them to his Aftermath imprint. Kendrick Lamar has shown he can live up to all of these expectations, notably with the release of Section.80 last summer. The independent album was well received by critics and it was only a matter of time before he would be signed to a major label.

Seven months later, Kendrick’s debut album is finally here.  Continue Reading
