Are We Feeling Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Vibe’?

Kendrick Lamar single-handedly took the rap world by storm last year with his major label debut good Kid, m.A.A.d city. One track from the set that immediately garnered attention was the laid-back groove "B*tch Don't Kill My Vibe." After spawning several covers and a lackluster remix with Jay-Z, it looks like the standout track is finally getting the single and video treatment. However, I'm not sure if the imagery in the song's clip is exactly what most had in mind. In it, we're treated to Kendrick attending an all-white affair that just so happens to be a funeral. But it just happens to be the most turnt up homegoing you've ever seen, as the processional and burial feature most of the mourners popping bottles and going ham as the song's chorus plays. Then, as the song comes to a close, the screen goes black and a simple message remains: "Death to Molly" (and by that, I'm assuming he means the party drug that Thundercat hinted at on "Oh Sheit It's X."). The video is...interesting, to say the least, and features cameos by Tennessee hip-hop legend Juicy J and funnyman Mike Epps -- who breaks the video's all white dress code. Perhaps you guys will understand the meaning behind the clip better than I when you check it out.
