Over the past few days, I’ve got two new albums on repeat. Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city tells the story of Kendrick and his beloved hometown Compton. The album has the old 90’s/early 2000’s vibe but the collection of voicemails from his parents about Domino’s Pizza to conversations he has with his friends make this album something most people can relate to. Even the prayer recital kind of hit home for me since I’ve gone to Catholic school, haha!
My favourite songs include “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe”, “Money Trees”, “Poetic Justice” featuring Drake, “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst”, and “The Recipe” which is included in the deluxe edition. The album is now available on Spotify!
Face Vega and Gila Monsta are two friends who make up Gorgeous Children. I’m really bad at describing music genres but I guess if I had to put these guys in a category it would probably be….Rap Noir? Is that even real? I don’t know, a mixture of dark and trill music is something new to me but I am enjoying it. “Secret Indicments” is a song I’ve got on repeat. You can purchase their self-titled album through their bandcamp.
