The Internet Has No Chill Over Kendrick Lamar's New Video 'Humble'

Black Twitter had (mostly) good things to say about his latest release.

King Kendrick is back with heat

On Thursday, just a week after releasing “The Heart Part 4,”  Kendrick Lamar dropped his first video “Humble.” from his highly anticipated forthcoming album. The video, directed by Dave Meyers and The Little Homies, depicts the rapper as a deity-like figure but for the hood. He’s draped in a pope-esque cloak, having his version of “The Last Supper” with his boys and looking too cool while he’s literally on fire.

K Dot even gives an ode to the ladies who rock their natural beauty and stretch marks sans photoshop.

Anything but humble.

As expected, Black Twitter had a fit, and the video received overwhelming praise on social media.

Some, however, believed Kendrick had some blind spots when it came to black women in the video.  

As of Friday morning, "Humble." has more than 4 million views on YouTube.

Kendrick’s fourth album is expected to be released April 7.
