“Martin had a dream,” begins Kendrick Lamar, the Compton dude behind one of last year’s best rap tracks, “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” in his new video for “Backseat Freestyle”.

“Kendrick have a dream,” too, it turns out.

“All my life I want money and power. Respect my mind or die from lead shower. I pray my dick get big as the Eiffel Tower So I can fuck the world for 72 hours.”

Not sure that’s what Dr. King had in mind, but OK. THE WORLD IS GOING TO HELL KIDS THESE DAYS ETC RAP HIP HOP MUSIC. Calm down though, dad. Lamar is just playing a character, he explained in an interview. “Backseat Freestyle” is being in the mind state of being 16 years old, and not having no cares in the world. Not giving a damn about nothing, but life and money and what you see in front of you. It’s not me talking now, it’s me talking then.”
