Best Kendrick Lamar Songs
The Contenders: Page 3
The pure technical prowess displayed in this song is fantastic. Even though this song is short, he reaches a energetic climax 15 seconds from the end. The crescendo throughout the song is spurred along by a jazz-like beat which is unique to Kendrick. He also addresses the issue of gender inequality from an angle which other artists wouldn't dare to, pulling it off flawlessly with the perfect amount of aggression and humor in a way only he could. Pure poetry. Also he tweeted that this is favorite song off this album.
Kendricks beat song about death and very creative on the third verse.V 1 Comment
The lyrics, the metaphors, the alliteration, the vivid imagery of his life, perfectly complementing a destructively dope beat. Another immaculate song by an immaculate artist
He goes so hard on this song! It's mad!
Sickest beat, sickest lyrics. Always gets me pumped when I'm working out!
WHY IS THIS #42?! His old songs are slept on so much.V 2 Comments
So powerful. His flow is unstoppable in this song
KENDRICK LAMAR ABSOLUTELY MURDERED THIS TRACK. The beat was already a favorite from jcole but god did Kendrick Lamar kill that whole beat.
Kendrick is in top form for this song. There's no stopping him. Plus an amazing half by J Cole
Love this song. Really different from most of songs.V 2 Comments
The most slept on track of GKMC. This song has Kendrick analytically break down his Compton surroundings as a good kid would. He understands his gang affiliation is wrong but he feels a need to participate anyway because the pressure around him is too overwhelming. This track sets up the banger mAAd City which follows it perfectly, it is almost as if Kendrick goes from a analytical thinker in this song into a reckless & rage-fueled teen in the song mAAd city. Every single verse has a very thought-provoking point as well. For example, Kendrick makes an analogy to the red & blue blinking of cop lights and to the Blood & Crip gangs of Compton, both of which are very different but are the same to him because he is a young black man who these parties are frequently victimizing. Take some deep lyrics that are well performed and a fantastic hook from Pharrell Williams and you have this remarkably underrated Kendrick Lamar masterpiece.
The best song on GKMC, the album wouldn't be the same without it great lyrics great hook and great beatV 2 Comments
The MOST underrated kendrick song of all time
So DEEP! Best kendrick song ever
Probably the greatest exchange between two characters in any song ever. Plus amazing instrumental and hook which fit the track perfectly. Kendrick's flow is great here and incredibly emotional.
Everything about this song is amazing. The lyrics, the instrumental, the hook, everything! This song is why I call him king kendrick lamar
"That's why I do the best I can, because I know how blessed I am." Quote to live by. Moving song with great lyrics.
