From Kendrick Lamar eating grilled corn perched on a palm-tree to Jay Rock getting his hair cut at a local barbershop, the “King’s Dead” video is everything you didn’t expect.
After having taken us on the most mind-blowing trip in futuristic Africa in the video for “All The Stars”, the first extract from the Black Panther soundtrack, Kendrick is back in his hometown of LA in “King’s Dead” visuals.
The video, directed Dave Free and Jack Begert, is a kaleidoscope of bigger-than-life scenes shot around the city accentuated by creative zooming effects. The video starts off with a shot of Lamar eating grilled corn perched on a palm-tree followed by Jay Rock rapping his verse in a Barbershop and then Future standing on top of an office building.
