Watch Don Cheadle rap to Kendrick Lamar in the crazy new video for 'DNA'

Forget about that new “Star Wars” trailer — the most important thing that happened last week was the release of Kendrick Lamar’s newest album, titled “DAMN.” 

If you’re not already enjoying it, you’re in luck: It’s available to stream on everything from Apple Music to Spotify, and you can buy it digitally or physically if you’re so inclined. 

But before you do any of that, you should check out the latest video for the song “DNA” — it’s from the new album (the second track) and it’s a relentless, repetitive song. That’s not intended as a slight; the song uses repetition to hammer out line after line of storytelling.

The new video for the song puts Lamar in the position of a prisoner being interrogated by none other than acclaimed actor Don Cheadle:

Though the video starts with Cheadle in the position of power, the situation soon flips to one where Cheadle is channeling the lyrics to “DNA” directly at Lamar — a bizarre situation for Cheadle, no doubt, as he was tasked with rapidly rhyming Lamar’s own song back at him for the filming of the video. 

The two meet in the middle, dueting for a bit before Lamar’s escape.

And don’t miss that full album! It’s really good!
