On August 9th, Kendrick Lamar and director Khalid Joseph will debut a 14-minute short film called m.A.A.d, which draws inspiration from K.Dot’s debut LP, good kid, m.A.A.d city. The film will help launch Sundance’s new Next Fest, a mini-film festival that will spotlight talented young directors on the rise.
A short description of the film from FADER‘s announcement:
“a kaleidoscope of storylines and ideas that defy typical categorization to explore new languages and new forms.”
That sounds awesome. Hit the jump to check out a flyer for Next Fest.
Here’s an excerpt from Jeff Weiss’ cover story about his signing of Drake and Nicki Minaj:
“Call me old-fashioned and country, but with Drake, that was the first time I’d seen someone that knew how to sing and rap. That’s all it was. I didn’t know nobody who knew how to do that. You had those old school singing niggas, where people would do a little eight-bar verse on their songs. But [Drake] was spitting and singing and killing that too. It took a while though. It wasn’t until I heard him spitting on one of my beats when I was like, ‘This fool’s retarded.’ When I hear something that I know I can’t do better? That’s when I’m like, ‘They need to be on the team.’”
“I wanted a female. Every team needs a female to rep your gang. She was annihilating niggas. I mean males. I was like, ‘I have to beef my shit up on that muthafucka.’ She just knocked it out the park from day one. She’s just Nicki. I don’t know whose idea it was, but it was a good idea.”
Read some more excerpts here and look for the issue to hit newsstands early next month.
