Kendrick Lamar Flips Script For DNA Music Video, Don Cheadle & ScHoolboy Q Come Through [Video]
Top Dawg Entertainment's Kendrick Lamar is making sure his "DNA" music video stays in everyone's minds for a long time. The hip-hop star has pulled a fast one on viewers by having Hollywood heavyweight Don Cheadle steal the spotlight.
In the must-watch visual, the Don lip-syncs a majority of Lamar's bars.
It stars actor Don Cheadle, who kicks off the video by interrogating Kendrick. "Kendrick Lamar, two first names, huh," he says. "What the fuck is up with that?" He then proceeds to lip sync the song, switching off with Kendrick. The end of the video features a new outro not found on the album version of the song, and the visual ends with Schoolboy Q walking towards the camera before punching it out. (Pitchfork)
K. Dot's latest DAMN. album sales projections are set to put him in another stratosphere.
Lamar's new "Humble" anthem is currently the theme of this year's NBA playoffs.
The NBA playoffs have a history of iconic theme songs, from "Roundball Rock" when the games were shown on NBC, to the ABC/ESPN era with Pitbull chanting "PLAYOFFS" in a remix of "Timber" with Kesha. This year's playoffs theme song is (objectively) a lot better than what's been in played in years' past: you'll be hearing Kendrick Lamar's "Humble" a lot for the next two months. It's a cleaner version, given that it's on broadcast television, but having that song be the theme is an automatic win for the NBA. (SB Nation)
The NBA playoffs start tomorrow at 3 ET on ABC.
