The hook from Janet Jackson's "Any Time, Any Place" is ever-alluring, as is Kendrick's dope flow and (insert every other good quality for a rapper to have) that made him arguably rap's biggest deal in 2012. Said our own Andy Moore on the de-facto album of the year "Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City":
It's so autobiographical you think you accidently walked into Lamar's Compton house a few years ago, and these sounds are what surrounded you. It's innovative, with a story that manages to be coherent but just mysterious enough that it forces you to pay attention. And it's fun, with the big beats and even bigger boasts that we expect from any rapper worth his Ace of Spades. Try listening to "Backstreet Freestyle" and not forcing a smile.
One of crowd sourcedly better tracks off his killer album, we finally have the sweet visuals for "Poetic Justice." Also, Drake.
