Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna’s collaboration is one of the best from the rapper’s excellent 2017 album, DAMN., so it was only right that these two had to do something exceptional for the “LOYALTY.” music video. The short film-like video was directed Dave Meyers and it features both artists in some bizarre scenes that include asphalt that plays like quicksand, sharks in that asphalt, K.Dot and Riri hanging on I-beams, and even a mob-worthy scene that includes an execution.

King Kendrick Lamar followed up a stellar headlining performance at Coachella this past weekend by unleashing a new music video for a track off the newly released album, DAMN. Kendrick’s new video for standout track “DNA.” was directed by Nabil and the Little Homies (Kendrick and Dave Free), and it stars Don Cheadle.

The visual commences with Cheadle and Lamar in an interrogation room, which turns to the famed actor trading off performing some of the lyrics of the track with the Compton rapper. For the final shot you see the whole squad together, leading to ScHoolboy Q walking over to the camera and punching it. S/o to Pitchfork for pointing out that the Chinese characters on the outfit Kendrick’s rocking in the video spell out “Kung Fu Kenny.”
