good kid, m.A.A.d city review

West Coast Supernova

A young man is dubbed as the King of West Coast with the future of second Eminem. By the way, this treasure was discovered by the same familiar «doctor»; and it seems that Dr. Dre has a flair for rap talents. By analogy with the white rap nugget, the black diamond, polished by the above-mentioned master, is flashing beginning with the first album. And by analogy with The Slim Shady LP of 1999, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City of 2012 has the potential to get into the 500 albums of all time according to the same Rolling Stones version. One of the most respected Internet review resources called Pitchfork did not begrudge for the rating for this new album of the California-born and gave it 9.5 points out of 10 and awarded it with the honorary badge – Best new music. Once this rating has been exhibited, music critics in the Internet immediately began to argue on the adequacy and fairness of such judgments. Opinions were divided in two, and at the moment it is not clear which of them will win, but the fact that the masses are talking about a young, aspiring star looks quite promising. Remember how many negative and positive feedbacks were generated for our bro Marshall Bruce Mathers with the release of his first album – it was from legal claims and hatred flows in his address and finishing with house-to-house hair lightening among the fans and posting in Stan style. What did this young black magician do on his first studio record? Let's see.

Revelations from Kendrick Lamar

The first thing we hear on this LP is the composition Sherane aka Master Splinter's Daughter and a prayer, uttered at the pre-dinner with the family. And, looking at the old scanned Polaroid photo on the album cover, you will have a clue whose family it really is. M. Lamar has his own record of revelations based on his own life and he invites us all to come and see it. The song reflects his anguish over the weaker sex during the arduous school and life process of person formation. Do not wait for the exquisite phrases and the beauty of the literary style, on this album Kendrick has a friendly chat with us, so do not be afraid of all anatomical and stylistic details that Lamar's lyrics possess. And this song is one of the most innocuous on the album. Three songs later we meet track called The Art of Peer Pressure, where Lamar is puffing something that is not really tobacco and suddenly decides to smash the trunk of the parked car. Let's go further, here we have Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst that shocks the listener and is kind of the culmination of the entire album. Then we hear a conversation with a friend that after a little reflection on life and album ends with three gunshots. Perhaps it sounds forced, but somewhere inside everything shrinks imagining this whole situation. That's right; the story after story master Lamar reveals the complexities of life of this troubled teenager in the not least troubled world.

The Slim Shady LP and Good Kid, M.A.A.D City

So what? Everything can be. One cannot deny the possibility that Good Kid, M.A.A.D City may be at the same level as the famous Marshall's The Slim Shady LP. Both rappers are talking about what they have experienced, and talking from the bottom of their heart. And you are, involuntary, imbued and absorbed in this gangster, impudent and dangerous atmosphere. You see the beautiful life, lovely girls and brutal showdowns through Lamar's eyes. It is difficult to explain why, but you believe in him and his stories. You are so touched that after a couple of songs you find yourself in da hood with bros, it is you who is smashing this hell bucket and it is you who is hiding from the police, because you had couple of blunts on the way home. Yes, it's not pink, good songs about the life. These songs do not describe snotty relations between boy and girl, it is harsh reality of life, which makes you turn and fight, fight and kill for the chance to live as you want to, and not how the others want you to live. This is the smell of freedom of black rap rebel movement. If you need a clear, festive talk, if the sacred fire of youth still burns in your soul, biography Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is recommended for your listening, and those who are in the subject, well, we think, that they have already praised the album according to its merits.
