Are you ready for Kendrick Lamar’s trippy ‘God Is Gangsta’ music video? It’s a fiery short film that will have you glued to the screen — WATCH the NSFW video here!
Kendrick Lamar, 28, is making us blush with his latest music video for his single “God Is Good”, which he debuted on Dec. 31. It begins with him getting drunk in a room by himself as he rants, and the whole thing spirals from there. Check out the emotionally charged clip right here and see for yourself!
“God Is Good” comes from Kendrick’s second album, To Pimp a Butterfly. The music video opens with a distorted, funhouse vibe as Kendrick raps at the camera with a bottle of booze in one hand. It’s a bare start, though he’s off-kilter enough to make the viewer nervous.
The video is clearly divided into two parts, and it’s the second act where things really get crazy. Images of Kendrick standing over a swimming pool mingle with flashing messages like “Time is change. Your friend or foe” and “If I blame you for a loss. I’m giving you all the credit”. It then turns into an all-out orgy of half-naked women grinding against him as he sings!
The last shot is rather melancholy, as Kendrick rushes across a bridge, alone in the dark, as he presumably tries to find his way home. Getting drunk and seeking the company of hot women is an age-old story, but Kendrick spices it up with his intense rhymes and rhythm. It’s easy to see why this album gained him 11 Grammy nominations and a spot as the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200!
