Mason & Starr

Monday - Friday 6:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

What can’t K.Dot do? He’s dominated the music industry winning multiple Grammys and now, he might be taking over tv/film. Since the release of his most recent album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, Kendrick Lamar has been on fire and his six minute short film “We Cry Together” is eligible for a Oscar. In the film, Lamar and “Hit the Floor” actress Taylour Paige play passionate lovers going through a messy and toxic breakup. Their argument is centered around an abusive exchange of words and actions based on the song’s lyrics. A short version of the film was screened at the Lamelle Royal Theater in West Los Angeles from June 3 to June 9.

The film was screened by Lamar and his longtime manager and partner Dave Free through their creative collective, pgLang. Most of the audience consisted of friends and family. “We Cry Together” has become one of the most debated tracks on the album since the single gained popularity. Fans and critics began comparing the track to Eminem’s “Kim.” The single debuted at number 16 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. Kendrick Lamar has said that “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” will be his final release as an artist under TDE. The album debuted at Number 1 with 295,000 first-week sales, making it the second largest album premiere of 2022. Lets hope Kendrick Lamar and Taylour Paige bring home the Oscar at next years Oscar Awards.
