”Tonight’s Da Night” (1992)

Mary J Blige and Lil Kim 
At The Notorious B.I.G.'s funeral, March 18th, 1997,

Im gonna be alright. And you’re gonna be alright. You ain’t gotta hold my hand, just walk with me tonight

If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?

Kendrick Lamar

This line encapsulates the concept of a good kid in a bad city, and it cuts into one of the most moral questions in human existence: Can good come from evil? The best part about the line, as is true of the best poetry, is that it doesn’t answer the question it asks. For Kendrick’s immediate purposes, he’s the flower and the city is the dark room. The question is: Can you trust him?
