Overall, this was a smooth track about staying positive in a dark life. I personally enjoyed it after the first listen, even though it took me a while to get used to. This does contradict the negative image that this album supposedly will have, but then again, I feel like we won't be able to fully appreciate the track until the album is released.
No...this isn't Kendrick's most lyrical track to date, but his theme stays strong, and I kind of like the direction he is going with it. The third verse was pretty great though...a lot of these lyrics did go down pretty deep. Moreover, this may some of the best singing Kendrick has ever released.
Overall, this track was dope, but I still don't think it is up to par with his good kid, m.a.a.d city work quite yet. Even though we probably can't judge it quite yet, I was expecting a bit more. Kendrick still delivered though...I'm interested in listening to his next album.
