Some deep visuals have been released for Kendrick Lamar’s Poetic Justice video.
Street scenes are commonplace within hip hop videos but lately, they’ve become a lot more abstract; Flying Lotus’ short film being a case in point. Whether Kendrick Lamar took a cue from that, he’s taken it a step further with the story. The video starts with the music to Sherane AKA Master Splinter’s Daughter to set the haunting mood and the brooding cinematics continue from there. Set in opens in Crenshaw, Los Angeles, Kendrick can be seen drinking and chilling with a crowd of neighbourhood friends (including Jay Rock) until the archetypal “girl of his dreams” steps in.
