Kendrick Lamar says he would love to have Janet Jackson be part of the visuals for his single "Poetic Justice".
Heralded as one of the artists who will carry the torch for the West Coast in the future, Kendrick Lamar paid homage to the Tupac-starring flick on his track “Poetic Justice”, which borrows its title from the 1992 movie starring Pac and Janet Jackson. The Scoop Deville produced joint is laced with a sample from Janet’s “Any Time, Any Place”, and now K.Dot is reaching out to Miss Jackson to appear in the video for the single.
The GKMC rapper is just waiting this his and Drake’s schedule’s work and then they plan on shooting the visuals. Recently while at Power 106’s Cali Christmas concert, Kendrick spoke to MTV about the possibility of getting the uber star, Janet on set for the video.
He half-jokingly asked that Janet forego using her manager, and deal with all the paper work and just show up to set, “Janet, c'mon, Janet. No paperwork with the managers, contact the managers. This is artist to artist,” the Compton rapper adds, “This is a young boy that looked up to you for years. Please, yeah, video, Janet Jackson 'Poetic Justice.' It'll only be right."
It’s a stretch at the moment, but with Kendrick’s current appeal, and the tie in with her sample, and the track’s title, it would be amazing to see Janet bridge the gap of the two generations of hip hop and become part of the video.
