Kendrick Lamar "good kid, m.A.A.d city" Tracklist, Cover Art & Production Credits

UPDATE: Kendrick Lamar reveals the tracklist for his major label debut.

After months of keeping fans waiting, Kendrick Lamar has finally revealed the tracklist for his upcoming major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, releasing October 22nd via Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope.

For the project, K. Dot enlists Jay Rock, Drake, MC Eiht, Anna Wise and Dr. Dre, the latter of which appears on the closing track "Compton."

  • Wayne's number 1 fan

    waynes's going to be remembered as the next pac. How can you not award him that right. Look how much he has done for hip hop. Hip Hop album says have been on slow decline, yet Wayne has been the small breath of air keeping it alive and bringing in money by bringing in ATTENTION. Attention is what keeps music or anything else alive. He branches out and does other things than music. He features on other artists of different genres albums. Pac would be proud of Wayne if he were still alive and I even believe he would agree to sign to Young Money records and help Wayne build even bigger empire. If Wayne were to die, he WOULD become the same vessel of icon as Pac was and still is to this day. Look how many people bite Waynes style same as they did pac(Nas, Ja Rule). Yall know its true but are just to afraid to admit it.

    niggas seem to hate on lil wayne every chance he get. This man been on top for atleast 6 years now. He is not a hot at the moment rapper this man been doing this. Stop hating punk ass niggas and give credit when credit is do. The lil nigga is a beast and have longevity. The man started out with the hotboys at 14 and still running shit at 29 years old.

    niggas call wayne a pop star.. like no ceilings was pop? sorry4the wait was pop? lil wayne is pop when he shows up on every kids bob, and i don't think his lyrics gonna make the disney channel cut. it sounds cute when y'all say it.. but it doesn't make sense.. wayne is no where near pop.

      If you like Wayne, cool. Do you, enjoy. It's when you weird people try to make it out to be like if you don't like him then you're a pus laden leper that should be exiled from humanity. Believe it or not, a lot of people on this planet don't like him. You mad? Here's a better one, they don't even know who he is. Listen to what YOU like and stop worrying about who likes whom or what.

  • jerryc

    are you questioning if the documentary is a classic for real? Right now name a song this year that is better than any of these: 1. Church for Thugs 2. Dreams 3. This is how we do 4. Westside Story 5. Put you on the game 6. The documentary 7. We aint 8. Hate it or love it The others are damn good too but seriously name one song that you would consider better than those. Maybe youll come up with one thats even on their level but all 8 on the same cd? Also its about a sound. Son of Chico dusty has a funky sound throughout. It flows. Contrast that with the cds of today that are mish mosh and have like 5 commercial sounding beats mixed in randomly and has no flow. And I am not a game lover or anything. I thought Red was just like the albums I speak of today...up and down, choppy, and no consistent feel. Just used it as an example. Blueprint, college dropout, late registration, 2001, documentary, get rich or die trying,aquemeni, etc., these had a feel to them and production was amazing on all of them

    • gerryd

      And Doctors advocate was 10 times better than the documentary. Ol English One Blood Doctors advocate Da shit Sceamin on em compton Remedy lookin at you lets ride Doctors advocate is another classic but games fallen off a bit. LAX and RED were just ok.

He's given us classics, and I agree his recent stuff doesn't top Carter 1 and 2, but you can't deny he's top 5 right now(top 3 actually). So many other wack rappers and yall choose to hate on Weezy. I bet yall them lame ass "real hip hop" fans who only bump Common(who sucks) and fuckin Mos Def. Them old ass fools don't even sell units, plus Wayne is lyrically shitting on them. Carter 2 still the best rap album of 2000 era. Fuck anyone who says any different(and Carter III is shitting on the majority of whats coming out today, including yall lame as opinions)

    EVERY STUPID INTERVIEW WITH KENDRICK TALKING ABOUT USING THE SAME PRODUCERS HE'S ALWAYS USED IS NULL AND VOID LOL. I knew it wouldn't be the case with a major label debut. And even Kendrick said it wouldn't sound like Section 80. One problem: The sound of Section 80 is what made me a fan.

  • jerryc

    I heard the snippets and the production doesnt sound great. It is not commercialized but not great. In todays rap its always one end of the spectrum. Either you have underground type of production or you have the way too over the top or a weird mix. Classic albums like Black Album, College Dropout, The documentary, etc., have classic production on every song. There is a sound that remains throughout. You dont hear that on albums anymore with the exception of Big Boi's which was I think two years ago now I think

      Who gives a FCK about bringing West Coast back???! It's about the music and the album as a whole not which coast it represents. I guarentee you Kendrick is more concerned about giving his fans the best possible product rather than which coast likes it better. Wake up dude.

  • jerryc

    tracklist isnt up to kendrick. It is absolutely disgusting and strange that Dre doesnt have one song on here. Either he has completely lost it or there is something strange going on. Labels ruin rap. They dont know what hte consumer wants. They dont realize that whatever they push will sell; but only the music that is actually good will have sustainability. They are making a mistake by dumbing down rap to what it has become....they are and will feel the damages

    • Anonymous

      I mean I do agree with you on your last comment jerryc. It is tough to find an album these days with a consistent sound throughout such as the albums you listed as well as many others I can think of. I have heard some of the beats on this album and the ones that I have heard, I think are pretty dope but we'll just have to wait and see I guess.

  • The Truth

    If any artist can create a classic album out of their first major label, it is Lamar. Not saying it will be a classic but Lamar has that potential. No other young artist has this potential except for maybe J Cole but Cole failed to produce a "classic" album with Sideline Story.

      Yo I feel you, this will be the first album since Live From The Underground that I won't listen to until it's actually out in stores. So tempting to listen to leaks but with certain artists I just can't, I have to go out and support. Kendrick is one of those artists for sure

  • Marquise Hudson

    I personally think he did a good job with his features. He didst over due it on the features, which is great. Not having School boy Q and Ab-soul on the album is no biggie. I think having Drake on the album is a good look. Drake had Kendrick Lamar on the Take care album which was a really good look for Kendrick. My problem comes with the production credits. I see he has Sounwave and Terrance Martin on a couple tracks producing. However he does not have THC,Taebeast,Willie B, nor Tommy black on here. Just blaze, Hit-boy,Pharrel are big name producers.However I don't think he should of put those guys on this album though. I would of kept it all In-house with the guys he came up with. At the end of the day I'm still excited for this alum! Oct 22 go cop it and support good music.

  • Anonymous

    For all you haters that are b*tching and whining about how you aren't satisfied with the tracklist or whatever it is that you feel the need to complain about, Kendrick created the tracklist for the album specifically for what HE wants it to sound like, for what picture HE wants to pain for his audience. What's not included is not included because HE felt like it shouldn't be. What is included is included because HE felt like it should be. So stop hating and whining all the time about how their is always something you haters are not satisfied about. Instead, you should appreciate the great work that this artist (one of the best out there right now) is giving you. Now that is real talk.

  • stone diggy

    lol this dude won lyricist of the year with no album please album dosent even rep him this some industry mad up bs dont even have a tde track they think that dre cosign gonna sell recoreds please his music is universal and he 's lyrics dont transcende barriers i see maybe 75 k 1st week

    • Anonymous

      Okay, you are a perfect example, stone diggy. You are criticizing Kendrick because he won lyricist of the year without even putting an album out yet this year. Hmm, did you ever think that maybe he won because he is just that good and he is the best despite his album having not dropped yet? Secondly, you are b*tching like a little girl about how their isn't even a full TDE track on the album...did you ever think that maybe Kendrick didn't feel like it fit well enough with the concept that he is trying to convey? I mean after all, it's HIS album, not yours right? Finally, we live in the 21st century, learn how to speak proper english and how to type if you're gonna whine and b*tch.

    • wu wear

      agreed. pretty reminiscent of Canibus, actually...acclaimed lyricist murders every feature and mixtape for 2 years...hopefully this cat doesn't know wyclef and has a decent debut

    For everyone criticising the inclusion of Drake and the decision to even record with Lady Gaga, haven't Jay-Z, Kanye etc. shown that hip-hop can, should, and needs to, diversify the sorts of artists who do it, and the sorts of artists they get for collaborations. As far as I'm concerned - Kendrick ft. Gaga - dope. Jay-Z ft. Rihanna - dope. I just wanna hear Drake ft. Justin Timberlake, Eminem ft. Katy Perry and Kanye ft. Adele

      Shouldn't you be on a corner giving blowjobs for crack. All those collabs sound whack and its exactly whats wrong with hiphop. Its why someone like me that bought over 300 rap albums since the 90s bootlegs most albums now and only buys the good ones which is about 2 a year now. I don't want to hear pink, rihanna, Gaga, Cee loo, lil wayne, drake and all that faggot music on a CD. That shits for females. I want the attitude, punchlines, Similes, metaphors and story telling that hip hop is.

    • Anonymous

      the only one I can't see working is Eminem/Katy Perry... or indeed Eminem with any pop star (the songs with Pink and Bruno Mars were corny as hell). Jay-Z and Rihanna have at least 3 songs together. Kendrick and Gaga, obviously, have recorded several songs together. Drake and JT would compliment each other very well. Kanye and Adele would be dope.

    Fucking Drake as a feature, what a waste of a song. Fucking interscope ruining all the last great rappers left in the game with gay features like lil wayne and Drake. If I liked that faggot rap I wouldn't know who kendrick lamar was. Interscope killed Yellawolf with that mainstream BS, Interscope killed Slaughterhouse with that mainstream BS and now I'm praying that this CD will only have one of those gay mainstream songs on it. Gonna have to bootleg it first to see if I like it before buying.

    • ged2000000

      Ain't that the truth. Interscope went from the best label after early 90s Death Row to a crappy label destroyed by Jimmy Iovine. Its not pirating music thats destroying sales in hiphop. Its the labels forcing artists to go pop. 8 years ago I'd watch MTV Base and it would be classic hiphop after classic. Now its dance tracks with rapping, dubstep with rapping, rappers singing. Oprah got what she wanted.

    I'm very disappointed that there is no Q or Soul feature but at least K Dot didnt sell out like SLAUGHTER HOUSE! This boy seems like he's trying to stay in tune with his core audiences as much as possible...similar to Big Krit and I think that really takes ballz and heart. Big up to the man for that. I think the album is going to be hot... If you don't like Drake skip that song... I know I am. Drake has a fucking annoying voice that just makes me want to bang my head in the wall and fucking around and start sounding retarded like Gucci Mane. SMH. That's why I don't listen to Drake.

You will hear the lady gaga song eventually and you already heard cartoons and cereal and the recipe so why does it matter if its on here or not? this is carfully crafted as a theme peice and he obviously only put things in the album that fit his theme. he didnt sell out. good for him

    If you guys already forgot, Kendrick had the best verse and song on Drake's entire album...so a song with Drake won't be that bad. Let's hope he stepped up his game for this feature. This won't be any Take Care shit.

  • Tom Kid

    sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst is 12 fucking minutes long! this shit must have schoolboy q and ab-soul...

    Everyone who slated j. Cole for putting drake on his album for sales can suck a fat one. Even kendick lamar has a drake feature on his debut lp. Rip hiphop

    This actually looks terrible... he did not keep this album "in house" like he said he was going to.

      he's under Interscope now. fuck you thought was gonna happen all he has is Drake and Dr. Dre on there, it could've been a lot worse... cause he reportedly has more than one song recorded with Lady Gaga.

    No lil wayne no rick rozay no cheif keef no chris brown no nikki manaj no future no ace hood.... Thas what the FUCK im talkin bout!!! Its a song with drake, but hopefully it dont sound like a drake song if u kno what i mean. Looking like a pretty solid album. wish it woulda had a J.cole feature tho. Oh well, im coppin this shit day one. GO BUY THIS AND SUPPORT A REAL ARTIST THAT MAKES REAL HIP HOP!

      Theres a song on there, I think its the Dying of Thirst portion of Sing About Me, like 6-7 features. I think its Q, Punch, Soul and a few other guys.

    Dude continues to drop uninspiring music for the people he is now targeting which is the mainstream. Every song is about his irrelevant coast or city. King Kendrick huh, lmao. You are not strong enough to bring the west coast back little overrated fuck. You are just Nas #2. Trying to be half street and half lyrical and are neither one. Just a little overrated fuck that your stans and only your stans will end up giving a fuck about.

  • BTMoney

    No Ab-Soul and no Q ? Damn... I'm disappointed by this tracklist, but I hope the album will still be great. Can't wait for the MC Eiht collaboration though !

      Why do people think as soon as it's Drake it's gonna be a radio song? Not every song he does sounds like it should be on the radio and he's not popular enough for it to be like "Oh it's Drake so it's got to be on the radio"...

    • Jared Marshall

      Because Kendrick was on Drake's album, it's common courtesy for artists to do guest spots on each others back to back albums. Not very surprising. Hopefully it gives Kendrick a lot of radio play.

  • realest

    everyone has an opinion bt you kno what you can do wit dem ... k dot , j cole , drake , k.r.i.t all make dope music they tell there story so wether you can relate or not is on you, jus coz u aint feeling dem dont mean they music dont go....that is all

  • roachd

    I had so much hope for this album, but now i don't so much, first off having a fag rapper like fake i mean drake on there for a start is laughable - and only on there so kendrick can get more radioplay in the charts with that collabo and also looking at this tracklist you'd be mistaken for thinking it was a mixtape as opposed to an album as well as that vile gaga on there as well - not as hopeful as i was before this was released

    uhm, i know i'm not the only one wondering..where the fuck is AB-SOUL? how is he not featured? people say this tracklist is fake and i hope it is cause i aint gone be happy if AB aint featured. that is all.

    • d

      There probably is. They don't always credit each other fully. They might just do bridges or adlibs. Like how Kendrick isn't credited on Hell Yeah and Q isn't on Bout That.

    • ...

      I would've loved a whole Black Hippy track in the "Deluxe"version they could've easily done that and made it sound natural, although by not doing that it just makes me more hungry for more Black Hippy tracks.

    • Anonymous

      I kind of like the fact he hasn't put Soul and Q on there just because they are homies, I would rather no Soul verse than one thrown on for the sake of it.

    • ...

      it's not fake. the album is for pre-order on itunes, that's where the tracklist is from.

  • datnigga

    Control System > Section 80 > Live From The Underground ... Cole Word & Welcome To Our House = mainstream sellout garbage. ... Big Krit stayed true to his craft with his major label debut and so will Kendrick.

    • Anonymous

      wow, you didnt have to go crazy on me, yes I would rather listen to undergroun hip hop but to say that kendrick alone saved hip hop is down right pathetic.Oh and i do listen to a bit of mainstream as i dont mind T.I. or Big Krit playing on rotation and as for helping hip hop move in the right direction lamar isnt the only rapper have you ever heard of killer mike if not check him out much better then kendrick.

    • West Coast

      You're*. And no, I'm not joking. Black Hippy & Big Krit helped save hip-hop's direction in today's world. Now go back to listening to your underground music you fucking hipster tool. Mad at the mainstream because you're too unique and different, aren't you faggot. Sorry for interrupting your Brother Ali listening session.

      your joking right???

  • jerryc

    to Anonymus....I just dont htink it would change the sales much....Real hip hop heads arethe only ones buying this album. There arent many rap fans left in the country; most I know gave up on the industry the last few years. However, almost everyone I knwo that still likes rap will be buying this album; as they believe its our only chance for a front to back. Thats why I said that....I just dont think youll get some kid who likes wayne or 2 chainz to buy it based on a diff single gettin released

  • DAA

    Only 12 songs if you don't get the deluxe? Every song better be good

  • Vandal

    Compton is a sick outro track, i do hope recipe is in the deluxe tho

  • Anonymous

    After "The Recipe", "Compton" seems a tad bit redundant. Don't think The Recipe charted too well don't see this one doing so either. He should of went with the more broader appealing song as it sounds like would of been the Gaga featured one from a previous post.

    • Anonymous

      ^Yeah but why settle for that isn't the goal to sell as many units as possible/appeal to as many people as possible. Who outside of compton is gonna feel that? You're selling records to the world not just Cali.

    • jerryc

      Listen this will sell 150,000 first week no matter what....people dont seem to get that the poeple that are gonna buy these guys albums buy them. Like Kanye changing his style to fit the trap movement? Kanye would sell 3 to 400,000 first wek no matter what he doe. THe people that are gonna spend money on these rappers will o it o matter what.

    Kendrick better be on his p,s and q,s. Never a second chance for a first impression.

  • Glenn

    From HipHop N More's listening preview a few weeks ago: "Kendrick introduced this record as his much talked about Lady Gaga collaboration. Neither the title nor the producer were mentioned. The beat on this comes in real smooth as Kendrick follows with his usual catchy vocal effect. This record has a Cali feel and we see it as potential single material. K.Dot repeatedly recites B*tch dont kill my vibe which will likely to get stuck in listeners heads. Gaga on the hook is not what youd normally hear on her Pop songs so fans should be excited to hear the final product. Her sound flowed really well with Kendricks killer verses and harmonizing. This is for sure to be a highlight on good kid, m.A.A.d city." So yeah, Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe is the Lady Gaga feature.

  • ETK

    I think Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe is supposed to be featuring Gaga, if it's legit and the featuring is ambiguous, there's probably just light Gaga vocals or some shit

  • jerryc

    wouldnt it be fuckin nice to get an album without bonus tracks? Let me guess....album will have like 8 good songs and then 6 average ones....sound famiiar? Every album that gets put out today! Fuck labls

    It's not fake. It's on iTunes for preorder. Exact same list. And the track "Compton" can already be purchased. Looks like a great list, but you never know. Sing about me, I'm dying of thirst is 12 minutes long though.

    • beatrixkidd

      co-sign. "compton" is a sick little song produced by just blaze. They must have scratched the gaga song. Interesting. From what ive been reading on reviews of the album listening jam(s), the album will be incredible. Production is supposedly off the chain.
