Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some tracks can have several thousand ratings)

This track is rated in the top 1% of all tracks on BestEverAlbums.com. This track has a Bayesian average rating of 92.4/100, a mean average of 89.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 92.6/100. The standard deviation for this track is 17.4.

it's alright


(I'm kidding. No lie, this is one of the greatest songs ever. Comments don't do it justice. It's the textbook definition of fantastic.)

This is indeed one of the best kendrick tracks and by extension best rap songs ever. The beat, rapping and lyrical narrative in the first half is incredible. The "tape recorder" lyric precedes some hot bars. His rhyming structures second to none on this song.

The orchestral feel of the middle over Kendrick and MC Eiht's back to back rap is the perfect buildup for the final rap that follows the "if I told you I killed a nigga at 16" where we get an absolutely killer rotating vocal with dynamically shifting effects and a reprise of the beat after the shift. One of the most potent well executed songs on GKMC. Also those strings oh my.

Deservedly the title track -- summarises the album's fresh vibe both lyrically and sonically.

"If I told you I killed a nigga at 16, would you believe me?
Or see me to be innocent Kendrick that you seen in the street
With a basketball and some Now & Laters to eat
If I'm mashing all of my skeletons, would you jump in the seat?"
