Breaking down big tunes from the Black Hippy brethren.

This feature is a part of Complex's "good kid, m.A.A.d city" Week..


Kendrick Lamar may have the highest profile on the Top Dawg Entertainment roster, but all the members of the tight-knit crew—including Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, and Schoolboy Q—are strong artists in their own right. In fact, it was the group's evident chemistry, captured on mixtapes like 2011's Black Hippy project, that helped forge all four artist's individual sounds. Complex spoke with Kendrick about his favorite tracks from the extensive TDE catalog. And thanks to our peoples at Spotify, this list is a fully multimedia experience. Get familiar.
