Directors: Dave Free & Jack Begert

Kendrick's always had compelling visuals, but one of the highlights of the Damn era was witnessing his mastery of the music video solidify in real time. "King's Dead" marks his frequent collaborator Dave Free's first time at the helm without the assistance of the Little Homies or music video OG Dave Meyers. Based off what he did here, give that man a short film next. Those wide rooftop shots? Straight Michael Mann shit. Not to mention, Kenny, Hendrixx, and Rock in a Wolf of Wall Street setting for one scene is like a video within the video. There's also that instantly iconic shot of Kendrick and the elote—just an embarrassment of GIF-worthy riches. —Frazier Tharpe
