DESCRIPTION: Many concept albums never really get around to the concept that the album is supposed to be presenting. “GOOD KID/MAAD CITY” not only addresses it’s concept but creates a world around it that feels lived in. Kendrick in 2012 had more hype behind him then it felt like he could ever deliver on, instead of coming up short it’s possible he delivered album of the decade. The discussions of death, love and religion make this album evergreen and provides more info on every listen.
