Watch Kendrick Lamar’s “DNA” video featuring Don Cheadle
Kendrick Lamar releases some captivating visuals to accompany his single “DNA” from his recent album release DAMN. The video opens up with Kendrick chained in an interrogation room as Don Cheadle’s character enters the room. Following a brief exchange, Cheadle attempts to start the lie detector test but is no match to Lamar’s Jedi-mind tricks. After a little back and forth lip sync battle between Cheadle’s character and Kendrick Lamar, he finally frees himself from the handcuffs and the visuals cut back-and-forth quickly and almost frantically adding to the intensity of the second half of the single.
The video was directed by Nabil and the “Lil Homies” (TDE’s Dave Free and Kendrick). Schoolboy Q also makes an appearance at the end of the video, during an outro that was not heard on the album release.
