Watch: Kendrick Lamar & Don Cheadle Face Off in Insane Video for 'DNA'
The New York Times describe the artist’s fourth album as “punchy” and “boisterous”.
The Nabil-directed clip finds Cheadle playing a ruthless interrogator going after Lamar, who is cuffed and hooked up to a lie detector machine. The video for “DNA” came out today on VEVO.
Kendrick Lamar’s dedication to aesthetic has largely paid off in the global recognition of his conceptualised albums, with each record marking the beginning of a new era and story.
When Kendrick Lamar released the song “The Heart Part 4“, one lyric stuck with fans more than any other.
Post beat-switch - the grotesqueness of which is impossible to overstate - you’re swept up in a twister of cutaways including but not limited to joyriding, funeral processions, shadowboxing, and Kendrick shaking dice. After a few questions, something electric happens, taking Cheadle out and then reviving him as a rapper, lip synching Kendrick’s rhymes. The energy flows back to Kendrick who picks up where Cheadle leaves off and, from there, they have a battle of wills and raps, as they trade off one another. Lamar parties, he flaunts a room full of Grammy awards, living his life that is not any one thing – and making the best damn music out there while doing so.
