Just yesterday, Miss Info unveiled her interview with Kendrick Lamar from the day of his Letterman and Roseland Ballroom performances. Today we get an extra couple of minutes with KL that didn’t make it into the original cut.
In the segment above, Kendrick talks about his recent "Poetic Justice" video and how much thought went into the casting of the female lead. As he explains it:
“We had another girl for the lead, but I had an idea where I just wanted a little bit of a darker tone [girl] in the video. It’s almost like a colorblind industry where there’s only one type of appeal to the camera … I always kept in the back of my mine, like, ‘you don’t ever see this tone of a woman in videos.’ No disrespect, I love all women. Period. But at the same time, I still feel like it needs that balance.”
Watch that up above and catch the first segment right here, in case you missed it.
