Video: Kendrick Lamar – ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’

Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar turns up at a funeral in the video for “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” the latest single off his debut good kid, m.A.A.d city. Dressed in all white, the Compton MC attends a church service. But the somber mood quickly turns celebratory when he gets in the limo, popping champagne with his friends as they head to the hills.

Comedian Mike Epps baptizes K-Dot in liquor and they strike funny poses in front of a white casket. But we’re unsure whose funeral it is until the end when the words “Death to Molly” are displayed on the screen.

Danny Brown expressed his feelings about the video’s message. “I hope this new KDot video do make people stop fucking wit #Molly,” tweeted the Detroit rapper.

Kendrick is currently on the “Verge Campus Tour” with DJ Steve Aoki and will kick off his “good kid, m.A.A.d city” world tour on May 22.

    @worldpep, the concept of this video is about “Molly” [pure form of MDMA (ecstasy)]; the drug which most rappers in this generation are rapping about now and are selling records and making millions off of it. That’s killing his vibe (overshadowing his music). Him being baptize in the video symbolizes the rebirth of REAL hip hop. (Real music for your mind, poetry put to beats, floetry, not about money, drugs, clothes and hoes all the time; though that IS part of the hip-hop culture. Real hip hop is something you can feel. The industry has lost that part when it come to the Hip-Hop culture.

    Anyways, everyone’s wearing white, which symbolizes celebration. He’s celebrating the death of the norm in the industry….. His videos are deeper than you think. Pay close attention to his lyrics as well as his visuals. They all connect.

    *I know you didn’t ask for all of this, but I know there’s some that don’t comprehend this video.

    A lot of people don’t understand the concept of this video. Those who don’t comprehend, let me break it down for you:

    The video is about “Molly” the drug which most rappers in this generation are rapping about now and are making millions off of it. That’s f*cking up his vibe (overshadowing his music). Him being baptize in the video symbolizes the rebirth of real hip hop. Everyone’s wearing white, which symbolizes celebration. He’s celebrating the death of the norm in the industry.

    His videos are deeper than you think. Pay close attention to his lyrics as well as his visuals. They all connect, much more on a higher level.
