Kendrick Lamar squares off with Don Cheadle in cinematic "DNA" video

  /  04.18.2017

One of the highlights from Kendrick Lamar’s new album DAMN. has officially hit the Net, and it’s just as powerful as the song itself.

Kendrick tweeted the music video for the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced “DNA” on Tuesday afternoon, and the video has star power from award-winning actor Don Cheadle.

The video begins with a handcuffed K. Dot hooked to a lie detector test, as a suited Don Cheadle (the original Kung Fu Kenny, via Rush Hour 2) comes inside to interrogate him. But something quickly goes wrong. The result sees Cheadle and Kendrick confronting each other across the interrogation table, trading rap hands like they’re sharing the stage. The video then takes another unexpected turn.

The video’s storyline is still abstract, but now we have a bit more context for Don Cheadle’s recent tweet of a Kendrick Lamar stage pass.

DAMN. is expected to debut at no. 1 on the Billboard 200, with an estimated 475,000 equivalent album units.
