Rave reviews and remarkable first week sales have greeted ‘Good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ (Top Dawg Entertainment / Aftermath Entertainment / Interscope), the highly anticipated debut studio album from 25-year-old Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar. Released on October 22nd 2012, Kendrick Lamar debuted with more than 250,000 in sales and also atop the Billboard Rap, the Billboard R&B / Hip-Hop chart, and at #2 on the Billboard 100 behind Taylor Swift’s studio LP ‘Red’. ‘Good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ earns the biggest-selling debut week for any new artist debut in 2012 – introducing Kendrick Lamar.
Anointed as “hip-hop’s next big star” by XXL magazine, and awarded ‘Lyricist of the Year’ at the recent BET Hip Hop Awards, Kendrick Lamar has also received effusive praise for ‘Good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ from critics across the world:
“A perfect coronation for the new ‘King of California,’ (Dr. Dre’s words), as well as a shining example of Lamar’s hyper-introspective style of SoCal hip-hop.” (Washington Post)
“A masterpiece of storytelling, empathy in the midst of chaos.” (Los Angeles Times)
“He both resurrects and reinvents West Coast hip-hop…A triumph.” (Boston Globe)
“The miracle of this album is how it ties straightforward rap thrills–dazzling lyrical virtuosity, slick quotables, pulverizing beats, star turns from guest rappers–directly to its narrative.” (Pitchfork)
