The first of two-part video series for the track shows the Compton MC driving around the town and finding the graffiti created by artist Peake in a warehouse.
Kendrick Lamar has released the visuals for his "Sing About Me". Directed by Darren Romanelli, the black-and-white clip is the first of a two-part video series for the track which is featured in his Grammy Awards-nominated debut album "good kid, m.A.A.d city".
The visuals opens with a message from Lamar. It reads, "When the lights shut off, an artist's dream is that their work will stand the test of time. The ones that influence our culture are the ones we most remember. Here, two powerful creative forces come together to elevate the status quo and lay ground to their legacy. This is their poetry. Sing about them. This is part one."
The Compton MC is then seen driving around the town. In another place which looks like a warehouse, designer and artist Eddie Peake works on his art project. Lamar eventually enters the warehouse and smiles when he finds his collaborator's graffiti.
The second part of the video is expected to arrive sometime in January 2014.
