Here’s what they had to say about Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid in a Mad City:
“Born and raised in California’s most notorious city of Compton where drugs, gang activity, and violence are apparent, Kendrick Lamar has found a way to use his music to send a message of hope and respect in a dark place. In his own words, Lamar considers himself to be a “good kid in a mad city,” and he credits his father for influencing him not to get involved with the negativity. Lamar earned much respect from his Section.80 project (2011) which also is a reflection of his experiences, essentially proving that he is a serious new talent. Fans can be for certain that he will continue to grow and satisfy with his expected Good Kid in a Mad City (2012), which includes songs that the rapper wrote in his youth. In an interview with Lu Parker from the Huffington Post, Lamar says, “When I say these words, hopefully I can change something whether it’s a person or the neighborhood; it can start with just a small word out the mouth.” Click here for more.
