Kendrick Lamar sat with GQ back in December, and revealed that he was working on a “short film” based on his hit debut Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, but refused to give any details.
Then recently, in January, the Compton rapper told FUSE that a possible video project with actor Shia LaBeouf was on the table… but conflicting schedules have hindered them to locking anything in.
“We actually had a meeting, but our scheduled conflicted… Shia LaBeouf, he got a crazy creative mind, but once we really do sit down and lock in, it’s gonna be insane,” Kendrick said.
“He wanted to do a video, he had a few ideas… that was the time I was recording the album and going on the road, so I couldn’t really sit down for a period of time.”
LaBeouf has a history of creating film projects with rappers. Back in 2009, he directed the music video for Cage’s “I Never Knew You,” and had plans about creating a movie about the underground rapper. Then, in 2011, Shia released a short film/music video starring Kid Cudi and Cage for the Man on the Moon II cut, “Maniac.”
Will something like this take place with Kendrick? Let’s hope so.
