Element., the latest Kendrick Lamar video is finally out

-

After Humble and DNA is finally released Element‘s video, one of the songs contained in DAMN., the latest album by American rapper Kendrick Lamar.
The video, directed by Berlin photographer and filmmaker Jonas Lindstroem along with The Little Homies, the duo formed by Lamar and director Dave Free, is a sequence of violent scenes that seem inspired by their aesthetics to the Oscar film Moonlight.

The track tells the path of sacrifice and suffering that led Lamar to become one of the best rapper of today, that hand that emerges from water represents his being still there.
His being able to survive to the wave of violence that will be told in the video.

Many references to the work of photographer Gordon Parks, one of the most important artists for the black community.
