The rapper treats fans to a new music video, considered to be a "work of art."
Following the release of his new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Kendrick Lamar has shared the music video for the album’s song ‘N95.’
In the video, in which the rapper co-directed with Dave Free, Lamar can be seen hovering above the water, mirroring the crucifixion of Jesus pose.
Fans on social media have declared the new music video "a work of art."
One wrote: "He's a true artist and this is artistic brilliance. He's doing what nobody else is doing these days, not following the stereotypes. More power to him."
Baby Keem, who co-produced the track, can be seen throughout the video in a car doing donuts.
‘N95’ is Lamar’s second new video of the month, following on from ‘The Heart Part 5.’
The incredibly successful album was announced last August, adding that it would be his final release for Top Dawg Entertainment.
“I feel joy to have been a part of such a cultural imprint after 17 years,” he wrote.
Mr. Morale is the rapper’s first album since 2017’s Damn, for which he won a Pulitzer Prize and several Grammys.
The artist has also collaborated multiple times with Baby Keem, notably making ‘Family Ties’ with his cousin, which earned them the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance.
After taking to the stage during the Super Bowl halftime show back in February, Lamar is set to headline both Glastonbury and Rolling Loud Miami later this year.
