TGIF: The Art of Peer Pressure

This vibe is all I need today. And, the song title is surprisingly accurate based on the night I had last night (impromptu Funkmaster Flex concert? Why not). The first time I heard good kid, m.A.A.d city - and the absolutely sinister beat on this track - my faith in popular rap was restored again. When the song transitions at 1:10, my deep, deep love for Kendrick grows deeper every time; the low-down Suspekt sample and Kendrick's alter ego admissions are nearly too fly for words. This album was without a doubt one of the best albums of the past few years, and if for some reason you've been in a cave and haven't bought it, leave what you're doing now and go do so immediately.

Kendrick has my whole hip-hop heart. And as I'm typing this, I've serendipitously seen that he's released a Toronto concert date (VIP. Tickets. Purchased). Have a fabulous weekend!
