Among other tracks, "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" is one of the best and heaviest cuts on Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d. city. It's particularly striking once the first verse hits, as it finds the Compton rapper chronicling the final moments he shared with one of his close friends. Lamar outlines exactly what happened, why he put the song so close to the end of the album, and why it features one of his favorite verses in the above clip.
