Music Video: Kendrick Lamar “Alright”

Kendrick Lamar gets an absolute masterpiece from director Colin Tilley for his latest release, “Alright”. The striking visuals poetically address gun violence, police brutality, and the possibility of peace in these times, a recurring theme on his album, To Pimp a Butterfly.

This video and his show-stopping performance at the BET Awards (see here, watch till the end) are exactly what has been missing in mainstream hip hop for so long. It’s exciting to see a conscious artist making powerful music on the largest stage.

Watch the provocative video for “Alright” below.

    Incredible! I was lucky to have worked on one of Kendrick’s TDE Productions, directed by the talented Kahlil Joseph, we spent 10 days in Compton shooting on film, chilling with Kendrick’s family, friends, and in his neighborhood to capture and create a dual screen experimental film called Double Conscience on display now at MOCA in Downtown LA. Like this video, it’s a short film, a visual statement, and a cultural narrative woven together by the sounds and words of Kendrick Lamar. He keeps pushing the boundaries of we have come to expect from pop culture, and I like it!

    • sounds amazing ben – is there anywhere online to see this film?
