A true artist indeed, Kendrick Lamar tackles the current state of affairs in the black community, all the while showing community in the powerful, monochromatic visual for “Alright.” I don’t know about you, but this seriously just gave me chills. There have been numerous political activism videos since the police lost their mind and our rights have slowly become disregarded, but this one trumps them all. I’m loving the way Kendrick’s art has progressed over time and the fact that he still remains close to his hood roots. Because too many artists tend to become all whitewashed and dilute their art the more mainstream they get. So, shoutout to Kendrick for stepping up and putting on for the community, especially when it would pay to do otherwise.
