TDE’s K. Dot aka Kendrick Lamar debuted Part One of his “Sing About Me” music video. Directed by Darren Romanelli, the gray-scaled visual treatment follows Lamar as he makes his way to an open warehourse where graffiti artist Eddie Peake creates a mural inspired by the M.A.A.D City single’s lyrics.
The TDE rapper added the following message to the premiered video:
When the lights shut off, an artist’s dream is that their work will stand the test of time. The ones that influence our culture are the ones we most remember. Here, two powerful creative forces come together to elevate the status quo and lay ground to their legacy. This is their poetry. Sing about them. This is part one.
Check out the Karl Richter-produced clip up top. Part Two will arrive some time in January of 2014.
