This is the video for "Alright" by Kendrick Lamar, directed by Colin Tilley.
All hail King Kendrick.
It's rare that we get to see an artist at the peak of his/her powers. It looks like he's really relishing the opportunity he has to spread his message and work with really talented collaborators. I hope that he continues growing as a story teller and continues to put out such great, social conscious art into the world.
As an aside I'd like to take a couple of minutes to explain what this blog is, and what I hope it will be in the days/months to come. Given my work schedule, I don't have as much time to write, but I am hoping to post at least once a day here: sharing a piece of art, or some news that I find to be especially relevant. If you you are into that sort of thing this may be a site worth bookmarking. When I can find the time to do some longer form writing, i.e.- book/album/movie reviews, short stories, etc - I will let everyone know.
I'm only going to send out a link once a day to this site, as I don't want to become "that guy." I hope that I can share some cool stuff with everyone, and with time I hope that I can find the time and energy to grow as a writer. Have a great day everybody!
