Kendrick Lamar Will Star in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” Video
Welvin Da Great is named after the Instagram star who's mostly known for his saying "Deez Nuts" going viral. He's also the "who ain't got no bitches" guy. The connection between them is pretty cool. In an interview Welven revealed that Lamar reached out to him after his videos went viral because they're from the same hood in Compton (watch video here).
From what we know so far, Taylor's "Bad Blood" will be one interesting video. The track is the fourth to drop off her album 1989 and the video's promo posters appears reminiscent of Sin City. Throughout last week, the 25-year old singer announced her costars via Twitter, which will also include Lil Aldrige as Frostbyte, Zendaya as cut-Throat, Hayley Williams as The Crimson Curse, Gigi Hadid as Slay-Z, Ellie Goulding as Destructa X, Hailee Steinfeld as The Trinity and Lena Dunham as Lucky Fiori. From the looks of it, Kendrick may be the only male gangsta to join the mix. The Joseph Khan-directed visual drops at the Billboard Music Awards on May 17.
