Kendrick Lamar just released his music video for Poetic Justice, feautring Drake, and it’s kinda depressing. Even while sampling Janet Jackson’s song Any Time, Any Place.
Before the video even starts there’s a message onscreen reading:
"All characters in this visual are entirely fictional. The events that occur are purely symbolic and should not be taken literal."
Weird message, right? I wonder who that was intended for.
The slow-mo video, theatrically lit, shows a group of young adults hanging out in Los Angeles’ Crenshaw neighborhood before shots are fired and someone gets hurt.
"Haunting" is a good way to describe it.
