Best Kendrick Lamar Bars/Lyrics

PhenomentalOne
I know that people will question the very principle of this list (because to some, ALL Kendrick Lamar bars are great, which may be true), but I had to make it. Considerations have been made from 'good kid, m.A.A.d city', 'To Pimp A Butterfly', 'DAMN.' and a certain movie soundtrack single.
