Kendrick Lamar hopped on Mayer Hawthorne's hit "Crime," and although K. Dot wasn't involved in this video, another notable name stepped up to add a creative influence here: Rashida Jones. Jones, who will always be wifey/one of the few beautiful women who also make bangs beautiful, came onboard Hawthrone's "Crime" to direct. Last year, Jones directed Sara Bareilles' "Brave" video, and she was souped to be working with Hawthorne for "Crime." Said Jones,
"The video is a parody of ridiculously exclusive parties which are made nearly impossible to get to but tout themselves as ‘the party of the year.’ I liked the idea of the video starting as a sexy getting-ready video and devolving into a messy, very unsexy, unexpected trek. And the final realization is that YOU are the real party! I'm just starting to realize that about myself (which is why I stay home most nights). I am a HUGE fan of Mayer, Kendrick and of the song "Crime" and it was an honor to work with Mayer."
