Kendrick Lamar – Good Kid, Maad City
So some readers have requested that I keep an open forum here for discussion of significant hip hop events and releases and fistfights. It seems like Kendrick is that talking point at the moment. I reviewed the album for Spin and generally think it’s very good, even if the rush to immediately declare it a classic seems mostly motivated by a combination of general fanboyism and the fact that craft oriented and cohesive major label hip hop albums are so rare in this day and age. Your thoughts?
