Published Dec 21, 2013Over a year on from the release of good kid, m.A.A.d city, rap fave Kendrick Lamar has fit half of the LP's powerful "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" with an artsy set of visuals.
The video sets off its mandate upfront, noting in text "When the lights shut off, an artist's dream is that their work will stand the test of time."
To roll with that train of thought, the video follows both Lamar and artist Eddie Peake through the course of a day. As Lamar heads through his hometown towards a warehouse, we also see Peake inside crafting a mural using spray paint and assorted clothing items. The two art forces eventually collide, with the video finale finding the rapper delivering a verse a capella in front of the mural.
The video is apparently the first part of a series, leading us to believe a follow-up clip for "Dying of Thirst" is on the way. You can see part one of Kendrick's new thing down below.
