There’s a new Kendrick Lamar video, and like almost everything else the Compton emcee has done, it’s striking, affecting and probably will take a while to process. “Poetic Justice” gets the visual treatment this time. Mr. Aubrey Graham himself appears, along with many of the tropes hip-hop videos (scantly clad bodacious women, vintage American cars with rims, a street party, etc.), but it’s the narrative that captivates here. Check it out below.
