Kendrick Lamar To Debut m.A.A.d. Film At Sundance’s New Film Festival

Almost as quickly as Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d. city swept the nation in 2012, the rumor mill was spinning with fervor as talks swirled about an accompanying film with the album, supposedly directed by former Transformers star, Shia LaBeouf.

The rumors of Shia LaBeouf’s handiwork with the Top Dawg Entertainment artist have been squashed today, but the film itself is alive and well. Directed by the talented Khalil Joseph, who was responsible for Lamar’s visuals on Kanye West’s Yeezus tour, the film–simply titled m.A.A.d.–will premiere at Sundance’s first annual NEXT Fest.


The film is described as a 14-minute “kaleidoscope of storylines and ideas that defy typical categorization to explore new languages and new forms.”

Buy tickets quickly before they sell out and just like Terrell Owens says, “Get your popcorn ready.”
