Watch Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future & James Blake's Epic New Video For "King's Dead"

Kendrick Lamar Kings Dead

No one does music videos like TDE... Every Kendrick Lamar video is special and now the prestigious label has shared the music videos for one of the best songs we've heard in a long time, "King's Dead" by Jay Rock featuring Kendrick Lamar, Future and James Blake

As we can expect from all videos TDE and Kendrick Lamar are involved with, the cinematography is insane. From shots of what looks like Kendrick eating a corn dog in a palm tree.... to the three rappers channeling their inner Wolf Of Wall Street everything about the video is amazing. The way they switch camera shots is always intriguing as we see the rappers on top of buildings and Kendrick even gets in a deal gone wrong before going wild directing traffic. The video was directed by TDE President Dave Free of the little homies & Jack Begert. Enjoy!

Kendrick Lamar, Future & James Blake Join Forces With Jay Rock On Must Hear, Hard-Hitting Song "Kings Dead"

Kendrick Lamar Future Jay Rock

It was announced a few weeks ago that Kendrick Lamar would be curating the soundtrack for the forthcoming Black Panther movie, which came with a brand-new collaboration from Kendrick and Top Dawg Entertainment labelmate SZA. For the second single off the soundtrack, TDE member Jay Rock has teamed up with Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake for "King's Dead," which also serves as the first single to Jay Rock's next album.

Fans of Kendrick's "HUMBLE." and "DNA" will instantly be excited to hear K. Dot team up with producer Mike Will Made-It again over this trap beat, but the song is full of surprises throughout its duration. Jay Rock lays down a highly technical verse that shows off his lyricism before Kendrick and Future come back in for the call-and-response chorus, followed by a silly and unexpected falsetto bridge from Future. 

Mike Will and producer Teddy Walton then transition into a beat switch (with James Blake vocals!) for the end of the song that allows Kendrick to go wild over an intense, bass-heavy, distorted instrumental. Kendrick absolutely snaps on this, similar to the back half of "DNA" and fits a crazy amount of bars into the last minute. 

The style of this song is completely different than the Kendrick x SZA collaboration, and we cannot wait to hear what else the Black Panther soundtrack has in store for us. The soundtrack drops February 9th, with the movie premiering the following week. Enjoy!
