I play a lot of Grand Theft Auto Online. Don’t judge me; it is an excellent way to relieve daily stress. There’s nothing like logging on, pulling my Grotti Turismo out of the garage and speeding through the streets of Los Santos while Kendrick Lamar’s “ADHD” bumps on the stereo. My television is plugged into my living room stereo, so the bass is extra kicking for me, and it makes the scenario that much more real.
“ADHD” is one of the songs featured on the in game station Radio Los Santos. Taken from Lamar’s 2011 release Section.80, “ADHD” focuses on the apathy and drug use/tolerance of so-called “crack babies” or people born in the 80s. The music is smooth, and Lamar’s steady cadence as he raps over the beat in a low, calm voice is almost hypnotic.
Take a listen and watch the video.
