Good Kid Mad City: 9/10 after 1 spin
Tracks I didn't like: Sing about me, I'm dying of thirst (too long), Real (2 mins too long), Poetic Justice (not my type of song)
Favorite Tracks: Compton (even though the beat sounded like a 3 Kings knockoff), Black Boy Fly (had no idea about Affalo), m.A.A.d City

I give it a 9.5/10, my complaints being like yours of Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst and Real being too long.

My top 5 favorite songs: Poetic Justice, Money Trees, Bitch Dan't Kill My Vibe, The Recipe & Good Kid. Honorable mention goes to Compton, Swimming Pools & Black Boy Fly.

Bitch Dan't Kill My Vibe was on repeat a lot for me today, it's just something about that song that I love.

Fuck I can't wait till the album drops with these 9s and 9.5s. Should be fire, but I'll let the excitement build for now.

And on the topic of Liquid Swords 2, has GZA even announced a release date? I know he put it on pause for another album.

Yes......Meth definitely brought something unique to the game. So did Red though, he was an obvious huge influence on rappers like Ludacris.

But Red's solo catalogue is way better. Pretty much every Meth solo album was a disappointment to some degree.

Even Tical, which I consider his good solo album.......as hot as he was at the time and as popular, with his talent, plus RZA.....the hype was crazy and he didn't fully produce. Ready to Die and Illmatic still get talked about, Tical barely does. And I think Dare Iz A Darkside goes down as the better album.

Plus Red was the star of Blackout, by any measurement. He owned that shit. Meth was good, but Red was better......pretty much always, IMO.

As for Liquid Swords 2.....as a rule, I pretty much HATE when rappers label albums _______ 2. Especially 15-20 years later. C'mon, it ain't no damn sequal. Like Jay-Z with all his Blueprint's. FOH.

Only time it worked was with Raekwon, that actually felt like somewhat of a sequal album. Not nearly as good, but it was at least a solid effort and not a whole different style/sound.

Pretty much agree with the whole sequel thing.

I don't think the difference between Red and Meth on Blackout was that significant. Red has the edge lyrically, but Meth makes up for it with his mic presence and flow which I feel Red can never match. Oddly enough, I haven't touched any of their solo albums. Takes me a while to get to listening to new music whether it's actually new or old stuff I haven't heard.

I think a lot of people just prefer Meth because he has more overall appeal than Red does.

*Have to head out right now so I haven't listened to it yet, but looks like it'll be crazy*

Drake, 2 Chainz, And Kendrick Lamar are all features. Should help both get a lot of exposure and to have Rocky pull that kind of name power is insane. I'm loving that him and Lamar are coming up like this. Mainstream rap might just be seeing a major improvement.

Also, remember that big limited edition Purple Tape boxset that came out? ...

I suspect that many, like you, voted without ever listening to much of their music. It's the only logical explanation to me. I could see Meth having more "appeal" if you're only lightly familiar with the two.

Redman's first 4 albums are all outstanding IMO.

Yes. I'm not a huge fan of Dare Iz a Darkside, but the other three are undeniable classics, specially Whut? Thee Album which has nothing but classic tracks. Meth is good but his discography is disappointing to say the least.

Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe is my favorite song off Kendrick's album so far.

I actually like the skits as they form a narrative, and give context to the songs. Still wish they were seperate tracks though. But not a huge deal.

Only song I'm not feeling all that much right now is Backstreet Freestyle. I guess it fits into the narrative, just not really feeling the sound and his rapping......sounds like Kendrick trying to do Wayne and Nicki, with a little Kanye too.

The rest of the songs I either like them or love them. Great overall album. I applaud Kendrick, he clearly went all out on this.

I have to agree there. So far, Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe has stood out the most to me. Really good album from Kendrick, one of the best, if not the best debut album I've heard in the last 5 years.
