Watch Kendrick Lamar and Drake’s New Video for “Poetic Justice”

Kendrick Lamar and Drake have been keeping us on the edge of our seats for their “Poetic Justice” video. After Kendrick expressed having a Janet Jackson cameo would be ideal, we guess he went ahead without her.

Regardless, the incredible video continues with Kendrick’s love story that goes along with Drake’s as well. It takes place around Kendrick’s Compton neighborhood. Check it out above.

    The deliberate way it was filmed reminds me of how big the music video industry was in the late 90s-00s. The scenes are Boyz in Da Hood-esque; it’s like reading the novel that is good kid m.a.a.d. city and seeing it actualized. I see actual cinematography, evidently due to the particularity and deliberateness for which Kendrick Lamar is garnering a reputation. The backstory borderlines on ill-fitting for the song… but that fine line is balanced well.

    On a personal note– that girl is gorgeous! That shirt he had on in the first few shots is fly, too.

      Nicely said. Love the song and this video. I’m so excited to see and hear what TDE has coming for the remainder of this year. Especially Jay Rock. He’s been a little quiet lately.
