Kendrick Lamar is an award-winning American rapper and songwriter. His innovative, thought-provoking lyrics and classic Hip-Hop sound have earned him worldwide critical acclaim, and he is notable for working closely with legendary producer Dr Dre.
Watch Kendrick Lamar discuss his legacy in new art film.
For a rapper still so young, Kendrick Lamar's position among the upper ranks of the hip-hop game seems untouchable. In this new visual art film for 'Sing About Me' - a song from his debut album 'good kid, m.A.A.d City', the rapper discusses his position within rap and his ideas for the future.
The video, directed by Darren Romanelli, sees Kendrick's life profiled in unison with Eddie Peake and is part one of a two part film.
The video carries the introduction: "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."
