New Video: Kendrick Lamar “Sing About Me” Pt. 1

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 7.57.49 PM

Life Imitates Art.

Kendrick returns to the Tube for his Grammy-nominated LP,  good kid, m.A.A.D. city. Directed by Darren Romanelli, Kendrick rides through his Compton streets, before making his way to a mural of his lyrics created by graffiti artist Eddie Peake. Pt. 2 coming January.

When the lights shut off, an artist’s dream is that their work will stand the test of time. The ones that influence our culture are the ones we most remember. Here, two powerful creative forces come together to elevate the status quo and lay ground to their legacy. This is their poetry. Sing about them. This is part one.

        Think about it name a rapper who spit really Dope lyrics and sending a positive message (has to be Relevant though lol)

        • basedgenie

          first off, there doesn’t have to be a 2Pac for every generation

          however even if there had to be, if we were to follow the premise stated by kendrick himself, 2Pac’s timelesseness makes 2pac the 2pac of every generation

    Dope song, dope message, but I think ppl should stop jumping the gun so fast when an artist comes out and gets you excited. Let them paint their legacy for you go slobbing them down. Keep putting in work Kdot. You got alot of time ahead of you
