As hip hop heavyweight Kendrick Lamar reinstates himself as grand champion of the genre with his new album DAMN and a stage thumping set at Coachella this past weekend, he continues to address racial inequality through his art.

Once liberated from his handcuffs Kendrick is seen in a casket and throwing dice with his homies. Check it out below…
