In the city: Kendrick Lamar "Humble"


“Humble” is a catchy lyrical assault layered on top of a classic West Coast beat that wouldn’t seem out of place had you first heard it on Dr. Dre’s The Chronic. The video was directed by Dave Meyers (Outkast B.O.B, So Fresh So Clean) and the Little Homies who helped Kendrick paint a cinematic masterpiece that is both visually stimulating and also challenges social and religious norms by casting Kendrick both as the Pope and Jesus Christ himself.
