Kendrick Lamar’s critically acclaimed debut project ’good kid, m.A.A.d city ‘ is considered to be the most authentic hip-hop album released in quite some time. In a recent interview with GQ, the Compton rapper revealed that some type of short film influenced by the album is also in the works!
Some have already wondered about this since seeing “A Short Film by Kendrick Lamar” on the album artwork. It looks like the answer is here!
GQ: The album is out and praised. What’s next?
Visuals… When I call it a short film, I don’t just call it that for the sake of the album. So that’s a hint.
GQ: Are you going to act in it, star in it, direct it?
Directing for sure. I haven’t really thought about starring in it… I can, because it is me and my life.
GQ: Let’s say you weren’t going to star in it and you could have anyone in the world, who would you have play yourself?
Anyone in the world? It would have to be somebody… there’s one kid on The Wire, Tristan Wilds [who played Mike Lee].
GQ: Who would you have play your mom?
I probably get Taraji Henson.
GQ: Okay, okay. Sharane?
I would love to see Rihanna in my movie [laughs]. Looking at this cover right here, man.
