The Theorist – “good kid M.A.A.d City” (Piano Medley)

By: 05.28.13  •  4 Comments


Since stumbling across David Sides’ awesome Kanye medley some years ago, I’ve developed a penchant for intermittently following YouTube down the road of rap song piano covers. And what Hip-Hop album from the last 12 months is more deserving of a musical homage than Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, M.A.A.D City?* It’s certainly generated more than enough think pieces as it is.

K. Dot’s debut is the inspiration for Canadian musician The Theorist’s latest video – which features piano interpretations for a bunch of GKMC highlights – “mAAd city,” “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Real,” “Money Trees” and “Swimming Pools.” If you’re wondering about the kid’s chops, he’s already been vetted by Kendrick himself.

You can also download full sets from The Theorist over at his site and see more performances on his YouTube.
