GOOD THOUGHTS, m.A.A.d CITY

 

By Sobechi Ibekwe

Kendrick Lamar's magnum opus that is "good kid, m.A.A.d city" contains lyrics that you would be only able to pen if you lived through those exact experiences. Kendrick was able to re-create an entire story that embodied what so many people in Compton could relate to. It was a lucid dream over amazing production. A musical highlight reel. An in-depth therapy session sans the confidentiality agreement. This is one of those stories you would only need to hear once before it is permanently engrained in your brain for life. Would you be able to bare your soul and inner most thoughts for mass consumption?

We're all good kids in a maad city.
