    wheres “the recipe” vid thouuu kdot?!

  • Word

    For the longest time I was wondering if we were actually gonna see a swimming pool in this video lol. Not bad though. I had envisioned it as more of a pool party scene but he had a BIT of that mixed in I guess. I felt like the video should have had more of that based on the concept of the song but its a dope video regardless. Sometimes I do wish rappers would just make a video that matches the concept of the song sometimes instead of going far left with the video the end it all came together though. 7/10

    I love his cadence on songs. His delivery is illy.

    To me what makes a great emcee is the ability to be lyrical, trendy, stylish without alienating the audience. He’s growing and becoming a GREAT emcee. He has the ability to make a club banger but it’s still lyrical, fresh and new. One of the guy I would like to see have success and be in the bright lights. Good video. Keep it lyrical, and thought provoking. Properly dumbed down….but I love this track.

  • I thought it was dope all around.

  • Kendrick is just THAT guy, man. He can appeal to the mainstream without compromising his integrity, not too many rappers can do that.

    that’s what happens when you go mainstream you ain’t got no control over shit…i think the ADHD video is his best tho…Mac has control over his videos that’s why they’re so dope.

  • Dope.

  • Aggie Pride

    I was nervous how he would shoot this video. Kendrick continues to never disappoint.

  • Vitamin E Films

    The director did his thing on this one…Salute, K.Dot and TDE 4 allowing him the freedom to be creative. Love the record to BTW

  • dope song + dope video = the shit i do like

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Dope video! Niggas are fucking stupid to think Kendrick won’t BLOW THE FUCK UP. Every 10 to 15 yrs there comes a artist that changes the game and K. Dot is that nigga.

  • z7ra_Vv

    Idk how you guys say this is a mainstream type video.

  • ***CROMER BEATS***
