What does Kendrick’s m.A.A.d stand for?

Kendrick good kid maad city Meaning Revealed!

Kendrick good kid maad city has been revealed!

Kendrick states there are two meanings:

“It’s two, two meanings. The first is ‘my angry adolescence divided,’ and the basic standout meaning is ‘my angel’s on angel dust.’ That’s the reason why I don’t smoke,” he said. “That was me. I got laced. The reason I don’t smoke, and it’s in the album. It’s in the story. It was just me getting my hands on the wrong thing at the wrong time, being oblivious to it.”

It’s great that Kendrick would be open enough to tell us that he was once laced with a joint that hand angel dust and it made him have such a bad experience that he no longer smokes pot or anything else for that matter.

Now that we know what the two meaning are, what experiences have you had in relation to the two meanings?

  • What’s your experience growing up in terms of your fellow peers being divided?  Did you experience the type of things Kendrick’s album talks about?
  • Have you ever been laced?

    A long time ago I smoked PCP and it was awful. I was at the beach and everyone looked like miidgets. Took hours to wear off. I drank some milk and puked and came down. I don’t recommend it to anyone but milk does make you come down. The real pathetic thing about that time is my big sister was dealing and gave it to me. Bad stuff.

    On good Friday of 1999, my boyfriend smoked a blunt with his friends that we found out later on was laced. He came to pick me up after. We were driving on a two-way road and trying to go around a car, he felt bold enough to race to get ahead of the car from the on-coming traffic lane. He barley made it passed the car but once we got into our correct lane, he lost control of the car and hit a tree. He died instantly. I suffered minor cuts and tore a ligament in my knee. I found out that I was pregnant with his child at the hospital. My daughter is 13 now and she knows the dangers that can come from smoking weed that has obscure origins. The only reason we found out that it was laced, was through the autopsy report; which, by then, was way too late to recieve that crucial info.


    Appreciation to my father who shared with me on the topic of this
