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)

I wish that intro beat was used for a whole song, its a really cool beat. Its awesome that he samples Age of Adz (sooo underappreciated) but I don't think it was used too well. And the Boo Boo is kinda annoying
This is my least favorite track on TPAB but I have warmed up to him a bit. I actually am not too against the Sufjan sample, but I think it could have been less repetitive. This is just one of the kendrick voices I don't care for, and the "boo boo" upsets me. The Obama say, "What it do?" moment is worth a laugh the first few times listening to it. Love the Killer Mike shoutout!
My least favorite track, but it samples Age of Adz which just gives me joy.
Damn this track is growing on me.
BOO BOO! Love the thematic stuff in the lyrics
I love the intro, the rest of the song is really dark though, in a good way though.
Since I heard this song I can't stop yelling "BOO BOO" at everything I don't like.
This is probably my least favorite track on the album. It's too much of a caricature.
