Kendrick Lamar's major label debut, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, was received by critics with high praise, and is getting a lot of love on those perennial end of year lists. It's a narrative of his growing up in Compton, and it's worth listening to as a whole. And although this particular song is about incessant boozing, remember it's important to keep everything in moderation. Even moderation. [Spotify, iTunes, Amazon]
