Kendrick Lamar's 'DNA' Video Features An Interrogative Don Cheadle: Watch

Kendrick Lamar just brought the heat on this fine Tuesday afternoon with his new "DNA" video. The track, which is one of the highlights from the rapper's acclaimed DAMN. album, gets revved up with a clip directed by Nabil and Little Homies (Kendrick and Dave Free). It also stars the legendary actor Don Cheadle.

The opening is an ominous one, with K. Dot sitting in an interrogation room with Cheadle who appears to be a detective. Soon, his character gets electrocuted by the lie detector machine and things take a surprising turn. Cheadle comes back to life as he spits Lamar's tune word for word. Watch all the way to the end to see what else goes down in the world of Kung Fu Kenny (there's a familiar TDE face).

"DNA" is the latest track to receive a video following last month's incredibly artistic "HUMBLE." K. Dot brought his new DAMN. album to life for the first time during his headlining Coachella set, and was also joined by special guests Travis ScottSchoolboy Q and Future on stage. 

Keep the Kendrick love going with a #TBT clip of Lamar telling us about bringing hope and pride to his hometown of Compton back at Coachella in 2012:
