** The first and final line of ''DAMN.'' is "So, I was taking a walk the other day." We hear it first in the opening track "BLOOD." and then again in "DUCKWORTH.", after the song ends with several sounds from previous songs on the album being played in reverse as if the whole album is being reversed back to the very start.

** ''DAMN.'' gives us the 7 long minute ''FEAR.'', a song about Kendrick's fears during different stages of his life. Just like ''Mortal Man'' and ''Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst'', it ends in a spoken word portion by Kendrick's cousin Carl.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Ultimately, GKMC is one for GangstaRap and the more unhealthy aspects of today's rap. There's nothing glamorous about the thug lifestyle, instead coming off as bloody and pathetic. Partying and excessive drinking is ultimately destructive and hollow. Even sex, represented through K.Dot hooking up with Sherane, leads to an STD and some very poor choices in the name of getting laid. K.Dot eventually is set straight but at a very high price.

** ''DAMN.'' can also be a deconstruction of the modern rap and pop scene with songs like ''GOD.'' and ''DNA.'' being deconstructions of the pop-rap and trap genres respectively.
