Eddie Peake Is in the New Kendrick Lamar Video

Standing before a blank canvas, Peake removes a layer to prepare to make art.

Yeah, 2013 was a pretty weird one for art-music collaborations—Jay Z and Marina, Lady Gaga and Koons, George Condo and Kanye West. (Really liked that last one, to be honest.)

It turns out that one more was released right before the holidays—a new Kendrick Lamar video for his song “Sing About Me,” which features Brit Eddie Peake making a new artwork with lyrics from the song. (Rap Genius has an image.)

You may recall Mr. Peake from last year’s Performa, or recent group shows at James Fuentes and David Zwirner.

I prefer the song sans video, but decide for yourself below.

This is apparently part 1 of the video, with part 2 expected sometime this month.
