Kontrol Music Wednesday: Kendrick Lamar Teams Up With Don Cheadle For “DNA” Video


Less than a week after the release of his highly anticipated album, DAMN., Kendrick Lamar has released the official music video for the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced single “DNA.” The Nabil – directed video stars veteran actor, Don Cheadle and Lamar’s alter ego, Kung Fu Kenny.
