Kendrick Lamar’s Slave Intern movie ripped apart by Twitter users


One user said the movie felt like a combo of “Get Out” and “Night at the Museum.”

While we eagerly await a new Kendrick Lamar album, it looks like the 34-year-old Compton native has managed to get himself in hot water thanks to a movie he’s working on in collaboration with South Parkco-creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

At the moment the film does not have an official title, but we do know that it is a comedy and that it “will follow a black man intern as a slave re-enactor at a museum who discovers that the ancestors of his white girlfriend once owned his [ancestors].”

Others took the opportunity to make clever jokes using the rapper’s lyrics. “Not a comedy,” @_zolarmoon wrote. “Confront [your] the ancestral past is not so funny when [you’re] a nigger in America but… I guess. It’s not giving royalty in my DNA, Kendrick.”

Like XXL charger reports, the next film will be live-action and was written by Vernon Chatman. “Kendrick and Dave Free are producing the film through pgLang while Stone and Parker are working through Park Country,” the post explains. Production is expected to begin this spring, although a director has yet to be hired.
