If you're going to put a rap record on your chart ahead of Illmatic it should be...... whatever fuckin record you like the most.

nas will get his message across with the same letters in every word and the same (nonexistent) pause between each line while delivering it so smoothly that you don't even realize how fast he's actually rapping. he never sounds panicky or rushed no matter how many syllables per minute he's spitting. you shouldn't have this higher up on your charts than illmatic just b/c it's very emotionally powerful. tear-jerking, even....

if you're going to put a rap album ahead of illmatic in your charts though, it should be TPAB, at least that one's musically excellent enough that it won't make me throw up when it passes nas.

I guess I still have to give it a 100, but if it passes Illmatic I might have to murder some folks. it doesn't really belong here. it's already passed hundreds too many excellent albums. no higher, please?

This was a pretty big album (well it still is). Many people say that this is saving Hip Hop. While I'm not a big expert on Hip Hop (I've been getting into it for the past year) I can somehow see why people are in love with this and other work by Kendrick. This is grim depiction what supposed to be Kendrick's early life. Should be grateful to Dr. Dre for advocating Kendrick, because he saw something special in him. This record definitely shows why. Can't wait to listen to To Pimp A Butterfly...

Being a fan of rock music and many of its forms/subgenres and such and staying clear of anything different, I decided to see what it would be like branching out. Wow, am I glad I did that. This is so fantastic, I would recommend this as well as Kendrick Lamar's next album, To Pimp A Butterfly, to any fan of music.

It takes some really impressive music to impress someone who never liked the genre in question until that point. Respect.

Few conceptual albums try to create a full narrative that is both concise and terrain for listeners like this album. Kendrick takes us on a journey through his childhood and early adult life in Compton that address both racial and social topics as well as being extremely fun.

The best rap album for over twenty years. It's utterly fresh and Lamar manages to make something wholly original out of a genre that needed a kick up the ass. Kendrick Lamar is the most important rap artist since Nas. Excellent record.

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is the best hip-hop album of the generation, along with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I don't know what to say that the other reviewers haven't already covered, but I feel like this album has every characteristic I'd ever want out of one. Kendrick can easily tell a story. He can also put on a club-banger with catchy lyrics. I didn't understand the hype when I first listened to this album, but now, I'd consider it to be one of the best hip-hop albums of all time. Kendrick's relatable narrative is something that I often think back on. In the end, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City is an album that I seemed to find myself in.
