Remember back when Kendrick Lamar linked up with director Khalil Joseph to take his Grammy snubbed album, good kid m.A.A.d city, and remaster it for the silver screen? The 14 minute short film did eventually come to fruition as it hit Sundance’s NEXT Festival and later was shown at the L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art, but it never quite made it to the internet for all to see.
Now, the film has been officially released to the public as fans of good kid m.A.A.d city can take a dramatic trip through the streets of Compton and see the city that raised King Kendrick through Joseph’s keen and captivating directorial eye and snippets from K.Dot’s transformative album.
As it stands, 2016 is looking to be yet another big year for Kendrick and the rest Top Dawg Entertainment (including two yet to be named artists), as plans for album releases have been quasi-revealed by the crew’s CEO earlier this week.
While we wait, dive into the good kid m.A.A.d city short film above.
