m.A.A.d city by Kendrick Lamar
So last night, I went to a Kendrick Lamar concert. I'm not going to lie to you, it wasn't quite as mind-blowing as I had hoped. But, with that said, there were several moments during that show that met and exceeded expectations. Right before he played this song, he warned those in the pit that it was "about to get turnt' up" in there, and that they might want to leave before it got too rowdy down there. This is riot music right here, and things started to get out of hand when it came on. Quite a moment. Listen after the break.
If you were ever going to go out and rob a house, I think this might just be the perfect song to have in your head. Bump this shit loud.
And for your listening pleasure, I think you'll also enjoy this lesser known Kendrick song. It's not from an album or anything, as far as I can tell, but it is among his most technically impressive rapping. And with plenty of Looney Tunes references to match. And it's got a free download. Enjoy.
