Review of Kendrick Lamar: Good Kid M.A.A.D. City

For March 2019 Sonic member Darren Scott picked Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid M.A.A.D. City. This was his second album but his first big studio album. It was important to know when listening to GKMC that it is a concept album that tells the story of Kendrick as a youthful K.Dot on the streets of Compton. You will hear more in our review and we’ve added some links below that will expend on the details of our review and rediscovery of this album but a few things you will learn in this review are:

  • What the M.A.A.D. acronym stands for.
  • Who Lamar saw get shot when he was 8 years old.
  • Why you should go to the 420 Premium Market if you are in Calgary (or your local legal cannabis dispensary) and pick up some San Raphael Tangerine Dream cannabis 
  • That at least 1 in 4 white Canadian dudes music tastes does not include this Lamar album

Join us and listen to how we dissect this album and how a recent album is already known as being a major influence.
