Kendrick Lamar Delivers Manic Video for ‘For Free? (Interlude)’
Rapper Kendrick Lamar continues to promote his celebrated album To Pimp a Butterfly with a new video for “Be Free?” (Interlude), which is spoken word tune on the LP.
The clip features a bodacious model is who frustrated over K.Dot’s inabilities to support her with materialistic needs. This is when the Compton rhymer reminds the presumed gold-digger repeatedly that “this d--- ain’t free.”
Throughout the video we are reminded of how America was built on the tortured backs of African-Americans, for free. “Livin’ in captivity raised my cap salary,” he raps, adding, “I need forty acres and a mule, not a forty ounce and a pitbull, bulls---.”
At one point, Lamar is dressed as Uncle Sam to represent America’s consumption of taxing everything and anything. There’s also a live band that pops up and performs the manic production.
