“Backseat Freestyle is being in the mind state of being 16 years old, and not having no cares in the world. Not giving a damn about nothing, but life and money and what you see in front of you. It’s not me talking now, it’s me talking then.” – Kendrick Lamar
Acquainting us with his dad and his belly, Sherane and her ass and his 16 year old self, Kendrick Lamar has dropped off the second video from his brilliant and widely regarded hip-hop album of the year “good kid, m.A.A.d city“, shot partly in Paris. It’s nothing too high budget or fancy but hopefully it is the first of many to come, as I think it’s fair to say that every song on the album deserves a visual treatment! Check out the official “Backseat Freestyle” video below and below that, a fanmade video for “m.A.A.d city” that I thought was done brilliantly, and is perhaps even better than “Backstreet Freestyle”‘s official one.
