Don't worry, Kendrick. You won't get detention. You're a good kid in a m.A.A.d city.

One of the albums I have listened to the most in the past 12 months, so rank is now relatively clear (though the section from Money Trees to m.A.A.d city is so consistent that I could have switched them around on another day)

10 | Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst
04 | The Art of Peer Pressure
09 | Swimming Pools (Drank)
03 | Backseat Freestyle
06 | Poetic Justice
08 | m.A.A.d city
07 | good kid
05 | Money Trees
11 | Real
02 | Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe
12 | Compton
01 | Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter's Daughter

Top 4 should be considered modern classics, next 4 are pretty fantastic, last 4 are good but I don't get how Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe can end up as the consensus pick.

The album that introduced me to the greatness of hip-hop. It isn't easy for me to rank the tracks.

01 | The Art of Peer Pressure
02 | m.A.A.d. city
03 | Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe
04 | Swimming Pools (Drank)
05 | Backseat Freestyle
06 | Compton
07 | Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst
08 | good kid
09 | Money Trees
10 | Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter's Daughter
11 | I'm Real
12 | Poetic Justice

"Poetic Justice" is last for me because I kind of hate the production for the song on the album. I much, much prefer the SNL rendition, for its jazzy feel. It's one of my favorite live performances.

"Compton" is vastly underrated, probably since it is set outside of the storyline. Go back and listen to it. It's on that Daft Punk-level production.

I usually vote in these when I feel my vote might give an all-time favorite a boost. This would be one of those times, since my #1 is likely in my top 10 rap songs of the decade. For me, there's not a bad song on the album, though, and as a narrative it paints a picture like few albums ever. (I still prefer this one over the excellent "TPAB.")

04 | The Art of Peer Pressure
08 | m.A.A.d city
09 | Swimming Pools (Drank)
10 | Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst
07 | good kid
06 | Poetic Justice
03 | Backseat Freestyle
02 | Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe
01 | Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter's Daughter

Kendrick is almost inhumanly talented...his run in this decade is reminiscent of Coltrane in the 60's.

Easily my most listened to album from this decade, and without a doubt my favourite.

1) Sing about me, I'm dying of thirst
2) Backseat Freestyle
3) Money Trees
4) m.a.a.d city
5) Bitch don't kill my vibe
6) swimming pools
7) The Art of Peer Pressure
8) Good kid
9) Real
10) Compton
11) Poetic Justice
12) Sherane

Up to the top 9, I think they're stone cold classics.

1. Swimming Pools (Drank)
2. Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe
3. m.A.A.D. City
4. Poetic Justice (even though it's a heavy Janet Sample I still like the song)
5. Good Kid
6. Money Trees
7. Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst
8. Sherane a.k.a Master Splinter's Daughter
9. The Art of Peer Pressure
10. Backstreet Freestyle
11. Real
12. Compton

I didn't realise how ridiculously consistent this album was until I tried ranking the tracks. Real and Compton are the only songs I'm not as crazy about but they're good enough to be the highlights on almost every other rappers albums.
