To celebrate Kendrick Lamar’s triumphant headlining sets at Coachella over the past couple of weekends and his incredible new album DAMN,  this week we are tackling his 2012 sophomore LP good kid m.A.A.d. city.   It’s our most current record up for discussion to date so no real need to determine whether or not it still holds up but how heavy is our heavy rotation and how does Kendrick fare against other modern day Hip Hop greats?   His boast on Big Sean’s Control sums it up perfectly…
“Who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of ya’ll
New niggas just new niggas, don’t get involved
And I ain’t rockin no more designer shit
White T’s and Nike Cortez, this is red corvettes annonymous
I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas I’m rhymin with
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Mill, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas.
