Kendrick Lamar‘s groundbreaking second studio album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City recently celebrated its five-year anniversary this week (if you are still in a celebratory mood which, of course you are, we have you covered with plenty of GKMC content), so it is only right that Terrence Henderson, better known as Punch, took to Twitter to provide some fun facts surrounding the album.

The Top Dawg Entertainment President revealed that “The goal was to make a album in the vein of a Tarantino movie. Where the scenes aren’t in chronological order but it flows cohesively.”

Punch also revealed that Andre 3000 was supposed to provide a guest verse on “B**ch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” but it never came to fruition.

“I remember trying to get 3 Stacks on ‘don’t kill my vibe,'” Punch wrote. “He couldn’t catch the vibe lol. He was shooting the Jimi Hendrix movie….Can’t help but to think what he would’ve sounded like on that joint. Then jay did the remix so it worked out lol.”

We recently celebrated GKMC with a handful of stories ranging from the samples that helped define the album’s sound to how the project is hip-hop’s Pulp Fiction.

“In many ways, Kendrick Lamar is the hip-hop version of Quentin Tarantino,” Andreas Hale writes. “He’s more than a rapper who simply lays words over beats. He harnesses his influences, pays homage without bastardizing and orchestrates emotion in a way that few other emcees are able to articulate. He’s one with every ounce of the musical production. Although he’s not credited, he’s just as important to the production as SounwaveHit-BoyDJ DahiJust Blaze and everyone else who worked on the album.”
