Kendrick Lamar "Backseat Freestyle" (2012)
Album: good kid, m.A.A.d city
"Mercy." "Clique." "N****s in Paris." You could make a mixtape full of motivational music with just Hit-Boy beats, but there's just something about Kendrick Lamar spitting over that ominous vocal sample that lets you know it's time to step it up. Part of it is in those insanely over-the-top lyrics: "I pray my dick get big as the Eiffel Tower/So I can fuck the world for 72 hours." World domination is imminent when this record is blaring out of your headphones.
