Kendrick Lamar has released the video for ‘Alright’ his latest single from his To Pimp a Butterfly album, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. The video is basically a 7-minute short film, was shot in black and white, and shows Kendrick doing a slew of stunts including flying down the street, and standing on the top of traffic lights.
More important than the stunts, however, is the message behind ‘Alright‘.
It’s the latest social commentary from an artist on the relationship between America’s black community and police, and the abuse of power.
An issue that has been in the forefront of the news media in the last few months, and a relationship that seems to be deteriorating on a massive scale in light of the continuing and escalating police brutality against blacks around the United States.
Lamar’s ‘Alright‘ video was directed by Colin Tilley and the Little Homies. Watch it below.
