good kid, m.A.A.d city

good kid, m.A.A.d city ★★★★★

everything about this album is pure mother-fucking facts 

his place in the rap industry is so special, he cannot and will not ever be replaced. no doubt k dot solidified himself as the oldhead rap artist of our generation, carrying the torch of nwa, snoop, 2pac, and other west coast artists of the previous generation. 
i was 10 years old when good kid, m.A.A.d city came out, all i cared about was turning 10 mf tf did i know abt kendrick💀 but some of my most valued memories as a kid was driving around with my older brother dominic, he had a LOUD ass sound system and would bump every single type of music… he put me on edm, rap, country, 2000s alt-rock, and so much more. it was now 2014 and i was using a busted ass samsung galaxy s3 my mom previously owned that had a shit ton of mp3 files of all the illegal album torrents my brother had on his computer. i sat in the back of my mom’s big ass red truck listening to m.A.A.d city, love me by wayne,
MIKE WILL made it ! i used to download shady minecraft.exe files on my mom’s school computer listening to drake and wayne NOT GIVING A FUCK 
but anyway back to 2013: i was in the passenger seat of my brother’s car, on our way to get haircuts at a barber shop called bullets and my ears are blessed w for the first time 
IF PIRUS AND CRIPS ALL GOT ALONG 
THEY’D PROBABLY GUN ME DOWN BY THE END OF THIS SONG
SEEM LIKE THE WHOLE CITY AGAINST ME 
EVERY TIME I’M IN THE STREET I HEAR 

my ears hurt dawg ! DOM LOWER THE FUCKING MUSIC DAWG ! homie raised up the volume so he didn’t have to hear me 
YAWK YAWK YAWK YAWK 
i love him for that 
now being 18, my appreciation grew so much for kendrick. damn spoke to me the most! his view on religion is so fucking admirable *not inspiring:2*  apocalyptic themes of religion runs deep in it’s veins, god is ruthless and unforgiving. the fear of god is more explored than the love, and kendrick knows this. 
“For our disobedience because we chose to follow other gods that aren't his son, so the Lord thy God chasten you.
So just like your children, your own son, he's gonna chastise you because he loves you.”
 
this what god feel like. 
pain and suffering is given to us by the lord and there is no other way of living, this is the fear that was injected into me in sunday school. tyler’s truth. the more i’ve rejected god over the years the more i feel his wrath. doesn't matter if he’s fact or fiction. the jealous god feels my lungs expanding. 
coming back to this album was one of the best decisions of this year fr. i got to see him perform at daynvegas this friday.. that night changed me    promise that you will sing about me when the lights turn off and it’s my turn to settle down my main concern promise
REAL
