Much has been discussed about the lyrical content and story told on Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city. So much so that it’s easy to forget that it is one of the most lushly-produced albums (in any genre) in the last several years. Here’s part 1 of a video of Terrace Martin breaking down how “Real,” one of the most complexly arranged tracks on the album, came about. Whether or not you like Kendrick or GKMC, if you are a music fan, you will appreciate this. Check it out. Related: See why we picked GKMC as one of the best albums of 2012
