Best Songs On Kendrick Lamar's Good Kid, Maad City

The Top Ten

1 Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst

An absolute classic. Not enough people understand the incredible story he is telling.

No doubt the deepest song on the album

This song should be in top 3 and Swimming Pools should be a little bit lower

2 M.A.A.D City

Such a great song with such a haunting story of gangsta life in compton, you see the difference between drake and kendrick is drake grew up a lucky life (he came out to prove it was actually pretty hard on if you're reading this its too late) and it might have worked (i liked it) but the lifestyle cannot compare. That will always be the difference between drake and rappers like meek and kendrick who had scary times growing up in gang areas.

What is there to say, kendrick kills it! First verse is goat, and the second just totally goes over the top

Best rack on the album plus the radioactive mash up makes this song even more special

This will be in my playlist till the day I die

3 Money Trees

I struggled to vote on my favourite because there's little doubt the whole album is unbelievable (and that statement has been said over and over again because it is), so I just went on this one because it is. I think if you were to do monthly polls on the albums I listened to most it would definitely feature this one all the time if there was a top 5.

Definitely without a doubt best song on this album. It is also one of my favorite rap songs of ALL TIME. Incredible beat, Kendrick's verses were pure greatness, and JAY ROCK UNTOUCHABLE ON THIS JOINT! PROBABLY HIS BEST VERSE EVER WHICH DEFINITELY ADDS TO THE FACT WHY THIS IS THE BEST SONG ON THE ALBUM. This. Song. Is. Flawless

The best song on the album and Kendrick's best song, and that's saying a lot, because Kendrick has made a lot of songs that I put among my all time favorite songs.

Kendrick and jay both killed it - Greatest1

4 Swimming Pools (Drank)

Of course, this song made kendrick famous

Party song? It is against alcohol taking over our youths at parties! So mad at people not reading the lyrics to this. If you want party music then check out Infected Mushroom.

To be honest I never likes swimming pools. It's a good party song, but other than that I think this song should be 7th place behind bitch don't kill my vibe.

5 Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe

Aside from being such a chill and nice song, it also illustrates Kendrick as an introvert in an amazing way and in an extremely accurate portrayal of being introverted

I love this song. It's just a total chill song

6 Backseat Freestyle

Call me crazy but this track just don't appeal to me

7 The Art of Peer Pressure

Honestly, not even the top 10?! Storytelling is on point.

Hands own my all-time favorite Kendrick song.

Love the intro: "One day it's gonna burn you out..."

8 Good Kid
9 Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter's Daughter

This is one of the very few tracks from Kendrick that I actively dislike. The thing that absolutely kills the song is the beat, which is very dark-sounding and feels a bit out of place in a song about Kendrick's sexual fantasies in his youth.

This song opens up this album beautifully.
