"Dia de los Muertos" with Kendrick Lamar
"Rigamortis" essentially serves as one of the final movements of Section.80: Kendrick Lamar's 2pac-inspired concept album, centered around the alarmingly high [substance] tolerance level of Reagan Era Youth. Serving as Track #12 of 16, "Rigamortis" marks that last leg of the album. More often than not, a segment that ends up being a bit lackluster - Nope, not here. In addition to fitting in with Section.80's overall concept... I personally believe that Kendrick Lamar's original composition almost signifies him metaphorically "murking" [murdering] the entirety of Rap game's meager competition.
Filmed and directed by The ICU, "Rigamortis"' companion music video basically features Lamar walking through New York City streets, stepping over bodies, rapping... backed by a small The Roots-esque pick-up band/funeral procession. Read a few Top Dawg fan reviews and purchase a copy of Section.80 over @ Amazon. Kendrick Lamar's major label debut, "Good Kid In a Mad City," is rumored to be nearing completion and successfully on track for a 2012 release.
