Without warning, Kendrick Lamar dropped a new song called “HUMBLE.” with an accompanying music video on Thursday (March 30) where he’s anything but deferential.
The Dave Meyers-directed video opens with Lamar standing in a holy beam of light dressed in papal garb before jumping between a number of surreal scenes. Later, the Compton rapper and his crew reenact the Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper,” with Lamar filling in for Jesus Christ, of course, before putting his own spin on those classic “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” commercials.
The new track is produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and is the second new piece of music of new music Lamar has shared in the past week, following “The Heart Part 4.” On that track, Lamar suggested something big — like an album — might be coming on April 7. Seeing as that date is just about a week away now, this new song and video seem to further validate that suspicion.
