Shit makes me tear up almost every time… The last song you ever hear in The Last Airbender. Highly recommend you listen through headphones. In my opinion, the single best classical composition of the 21st century.
“If I told you that a flower bloomed in a dark room, would you trust it?”—
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?
