Dating back to 2008, HipHopDX has celebrated the busiest release season by running 30 consecutive reviews in 30 days. It has gone on to be one of the most popular features within an already active and consistent Album Review section of the site.

Beginning today (October 22), we are launching the 2012 version of the series with our review of Good Kid, m.a.d.d. City by Kendrick Lamar. The series will run through November 20, 2012 and include reviews of some of the biggest, most anticipated albums of the year.

Enjoy, agree (or disagree), comment, share and come back each and every day to read the “30-in-30” for 2012.
