Music Video: Kendrick Lamar “Alright”

kendricklamar-alright-01 kendricklamar-alright-02 kendricklamar-alright-03

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.
