    Hip-hop debuts don't come much more "highly anticipated" than Kendrick Lamar's, as his first official joint had quite the exciting roll-up. A series of killer mixtapes displayed his talent for meaningful, thought-provoking, street lyrics delivered with an attention-grabbing, full-of-life flow, and then there was his membership in the Black Hippy crew with his brethren Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q, and Jay Rock all issuing solo releases that pleased the "true hip-hop" set, setting the stage for a massive fourth and final. Top it off with a pre-release XXL Magazine cover that he shared with his label boss and all-around legend Dr. Dre -- just about the best co-sign one can hope for -- and the "biggest debut since Illmatic" stuff starts to flow, but Good Kid, M.A.A.D City would be a milestone release even without the back-story, as all that credibility and money advanced just adds icing to the cake, paying off with some great guests (Drake, Dr. Dre, and MC Eiht), a high-profile imprint (Dre's Aftermath), and delicious production (Pharrell, Just Blaze, Scoop DeVille, Tabu, and everyone else delivered their best). Kendrick's living his life like status and cash were extra credit is also what makes this kid so good, and as he navigates his mad city (Compton could be one of the maddest) with a backpack of experience and wisdom, both beyond his years (25), he's shamelessly bold about the allure of the trap, contrasting the sickness of his city with the universal feeling of getting homesick, along with his Springsteen-sized love for the home team. Course, in his gang-ruled city, N.W.A. was the home team, but as the truly beautiful, steeped-in-soul, biographic key track "The Art of Peer Pressure" finds a reluctant, young Kendrick and his friends feeding off the life-force of Young Jeezy's debut album, it's something any Pixies, Clash, De La Soul, Nas, Green Day, Beatles, Black Sabbath, etc. fan can relate to, as long as they were a teeb at the right place and right time.That on-a-cusp-of-a-music-fueled-revolution feeling crackles and is rekindled on the cut, but the life of crime that Jeezy, Kendrick, and friends engage in is a dark fantasy for most. For them, it's as real and familiar as that baby-and-a-40 oz. Polaroid on the album's cover, and as Kendrick learns that hero Jeezy must have risen above the game -- because the real playas are so damned, they never show their faces -- it's a motivation that spawns some kind of elevated gangsta rap, one that's still as pimp-connectable as the most vicious Eazy-E and yet poignant enough to blow the dust off any cracked soul that still holds some hope. It's heavy stuff, as is the cautionary tale of drank dubbed "Swimming Pools," but that highlight is also as hooky and hallucinatory as the best purple stuff anthems out of Houston, although it breaks off into one of the chilling, cassette-quality interludes that connect the album, adding to the documentary or ease-dropping quality of it all. Soul children will experience d‚j… vu when "Poetic Justice" slides by with its Janet Jackson sample -- sounding like it came off his Aunt's VHS copy of the Janet movie it's named after -- while the closing "Compton" is an anthem sure to make the Game jealous, featuring Dre in beast mode, acting pre-Chronic and pre-Death Row. Besides all the great ideas and life, this journey through the concrete jungle of Compton is worth taking because of the artistic richness, plus the attraction of a whip-smart rapper flying high during his rookie season. Any hesitation about the horror of it all is quickly wiped away by Kendrick's mix of true talk, open heart, open mind, and extended hand. Add it all up and subtract the hype, and this one is still potent enough to rise to the top of the pile. ~ David Jeffries
