Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City,’ was arguably the best album across any genre in 2012, although we gave that nod to Frank Ocean with K Dot coming in a close second.
The album is still extremely young, and has really undergone the test of time, but the talk of the town since the projects inception has been, “Is G.K.M.C. a classic album?”
” I’m from that era where you congratulate, and you recognize. When somebody like Kendrick comes along…for a long time I was riding with him, I ride with him and I ride with Ab-Soul and I ride with Ali. I love the whole concept of Ali basically doing the same thing that I was doing for Jay-Z, for Kendrick.”
Guru went on to confirm that the project is in fact a classic in his opinion. ” Yes, it’s absolutely a classic. It captured a moment in time,” Guru continued, ” I’m just glad that there’s a new crop of guys that know what they’re doing and have a respect for the music and approach it with a certain reverence.”
