There's a scene in Kendrick Lamar's new "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" music video that shows a white casket being slid into the back of a hearse. Right after it, another scene shows Kendrick and his crew popping bottles and bouncing around in the back of a limousine.
The just-released clip opens in the midst of a funeral, but the visual focuses on celebrating life, hence the upbeat mourners. Of course, there are some less exuberant moments, with Kendrick looking pensive, alone in the back of a limo and then rapping solo in the middle of a big field.
It's there, amidst that green landscape, where he and his friends make their way to a burial site. Sadness soon gives way to joy, though, as everyone, including comedian Mike Epps, surround the casket and start dancing.
Epps provides some comic relief earlier in the "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe" video. Dressed like a minister, he baptizes Kendrick in a pool of vodka.
