When Kendrick Lamar dropped his newest album last year, you would’ve been hard-pressed to find a positive review that didn’t use the word “classic” to describe it.
I won’t go so far as to say it’s a classic, but it’s a stunning album for sure, and ten times better than Kanye‘s last LP My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy that everyone lost their shit over. When Kendrick dropped good kid, m.A.A.d city I instantly fell in love with “Backseat Freestyle” and placed in my top five songs of the year. The simple driving beat and the way he goes to town on his DMX impression on the last verse get me every time.
He just dropped the self-directed video for “Backseat Freestyle” which you can bask in below and if you haven’t given it a spin yet, good kid, m.A.A.d city made our best albums of 2012 list.
