Last month Kendrick Lamar was among the many guests who took over Puerto Rico as part of Bacardi’s “Triangle” event during the Halloween weekend. While he was there he and BMX pro rider Nigel Sylvester got together for Noisey’s one-on-one viral series (following Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons), where the two talk about their respective professions.
In a related note, Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d city short film will have a home in Los Angeles next year, as it will be shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art between March 21st and July 27th, 2015.
“Kahlil Joseph’s double-screen projection m.A.A.d is a lush portrait of contemporary Los Angeles. From barbershops to marching bands, from homeboys drinking in the streets to the iconic carpet of shimmering lights, the camera in m.A.A.d sinuously glides through predominantly African American neighborhoods in Los Angeles catching a dizzying array of quotidian moments suffused with creativity, joy, and sadness. Joseph’s film is accompanied by a thick booming soundtrack provided by emerging hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar and indeed m.A.A.d is part of the title of Lamar’s highly acclaimed second album good kid, m.A.A.d. city.”
Looks like I’ll have to make a trip to Los Angeles next spring.
