The Kendrick Lamar Movie 'm.A.A.d' Is Coming To The Museum of Contemporary Art In LA

By HHL Editors

'm.A.A.d', the short film based on Kendrick Lamar's already classic album good kid, m.A.A.d city, debuted at Sundance last summer.

The chances are you didn't make it out to Park City, Utah to see the film. However, if you live in the Los Angeles area, the  short will soon be playing in a much more convenient location.

Between March 21st and July 27st 2015 the 14-minute Kahlil Joseph-directed movie can be viewed at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

The venue announced it would be home to 'm.A.A.d' in a press release.

Kahlil Joseph’s double-screen projection m.A.A.d is a lush portrait of contemporary Los Angeles. From barbershops to marching bands, from homeboys drinking in the streets to the iconic carpet of shimmering lights, the camera in m.A.A.d sinuously glides through predominantly African American neighborhoods in Los Angeles catching a dizzying array of quotidian moments suffused with creativity, joy, and sadness. Joseph’s film is accompanied by a thick booming soundtrack provided by emerging hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar and indeed m.A.A.d is part of the title of Lamar’s highly acclaimed second album Good Kid m.A.A.d. City."
If you find yourself in LA, would you check it out? We're thinking Taylor Swift will.
